Paleo Almond Butter Eggs
One of my favorite things to eat during Easter season used to be peanut butter eggs. Seriously when I would see them on store selves I would stock up and eat them for
weeks months. For whatever reason they were so much better than regular peanut cups….obviously it had to be the egg shape. Well, now I don’t go anywhere near those peanut butter eggs, and why should I when I have this tasty and healthy alternative…Paleo Almond Butter Eggs. Sure you may have made your own almond butter cups, but have you had them shaped like an egg? It makes all the difference!
P.S. Did you notice my website got a facelift and a new name? Don’t worry, it’ll be the same delicious recipes, but with some other healthy living topics thrown it. You’ll love it….I hope! 🙂
