Ingredient #1 - Whey Protein Isolate
Now, let’s be honest. If you don’t have Swolverine’s Whey Protein Isolate, these little copycat Reese’s peanut butter protein eggs just aren’t going to be as good as could be. So why do we recommend using this protein over the others? For starters, it’s pure protein. With just 110 calories per serving and a seriously powerful 26 grams of protein per 30-gram scoop, your muscles are going to be thanking you.
RECOMMENDED PRODUCT: Whey Protein Isolate (30 Servings)
What Is Whey Protein Isolate?
Whey protein isolate is a highly purified form of Whey protein. Whey protein isolate goes through a much more rigorous filtration process, called Cross-Flow Micro-Filtration as compared to whey protein concentrate. Through this filtration process, protein is separated from any additional fat, carbohydrates, cholesterol, and lactose, resulting in a more purified form of protein. What does that also mean? That you can eat more of these homemade Reese’s peanut butter protein eggs without overindulging.

Ingredient #2 - Peanut Butter
Is nut butter healthy? Yes. Is nut butter (peanut butter, particularly) essential for this recipe? Yes! The rule is to find a nut butter with the simplest ingredients. We recommend finding one that minimizes salt, additives, and sugar. There’s a reason why peanut butter ruled the nut butter kingdom for years. It’s because it’s delicious and it always will be. No matter if it’s creamy or crunchy, peanut butter is here to stay and for good reason.
RELATED ARTICLE Is Peanut Butter Healthy?
Peanut Butter contains more protein per serving than any other nut at 8g and contains over 200 mg of potassium per serving. Not only that, but peanut butter also has 3 mg of Vitamin E for healthy skin and 49 mg of bone-building magnesium. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that consuming 1-ounce of peanuts or peanut butter at least 5 days a week helps lowers the risk of developing diabetes by almost 30%. Do I need to give you more reasons to indulge in this deliciousness?
RECOMMENDED PRODUCT Adams No Stir Creamy Peanut Butter
Ingredient #3 - Chocolate
You can use any type of chocolate here, but if you’re looking for a real pretty egg, we recommend using chocolate melting chips or wafers that you can find at your local supermarket by the regular chocolate chips. These wafers make it easy to dip the eggs but you're forewarned, it does take some patience and care to create a shiny, snappy, and smooth coating. Our advice? Don’t overheat the chocolate.
How To Make This Recipe Healthier
If you're looking to make this recipe just a little healthier, then we recommend omitting the chocolate and just mixing the peanut butter and protein powder into little balls that you can eat by themselves!
3 Ingredient Homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Protein Eggs Recipe
Serves: 12 eggs
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Assembly Time: 10 minutes
- 1 cup Peanut Butter
- 1 cup (4 scoops) Swolverine Whey Protein Isolate

- Mix together peanut butter and Swolverine whey isolate powder into a bowl.
- On a piece of parchment paper, wax paper, or a plate, form the peanut butter protein mixture into little eggs (or balls) and place in the freezer for 5 minutes (your hands will heat the mixture up and the chocolate is easier to pour over a cold batter).
- Heat up chocolate wafers or chips in the microwave, gently stirring every 10 seconds (do not overheat).
- After your eggs have cooled in the freezer, remove them, and dip into the melted chocolate.
- Place back on the parchment or wax paper (or plate) and put back in the freezer until cooled completely.
