If you enjoy chocolate peanut butter eggs for Easter, then you’ll love these Gluten Free Chocolate Cookie Dough Eggs! They are easy to make plus they’re gluten, soy, nut, and dairy free!
Do you follow food trends? I’m usually never one for following food trends, or any trend in general! Sometimes when an idea catches on, it gets overused to death online when everyone jumps in to ride the popularity wave. I usually laugh inside and keep walking 😉
This month, I decided to make an exception to my typical no/low-trend blog posts. For the past few months, I’ve seen some pretty yummy looking cookie dough eggs trending on the internet. I decided that this was one food trend that I had to make!
I’ve been itching to make these for quite a while, and since Easter is coming up, it was the perfect excuse. I made up some Gluten Free Chocolate Cookie Dough Easter Eggs that are vegan and nut free! These are definitely not healthy, but they are allergy-friendly so they make an amazing splurge on Easter for people with food allergies.

As temping as it might be, I wouldn’t try to bake this dough! I was curious about how this dough would end up baked, so I rolled dough into a few balls and baked them. They ended up spreading out a ton and got really hard – not great. The cookie dough is amazing, but baking this dough just doesn’t work.
This cookie dough also freezes beautifully! I put some of this dough in the freezer to see how well it would hold up, and it freezes and thaws great. If you want to make a batch of dough ahead of time, you can freeze it, thaw completely at room temp and roll into eggs.
If you’re wondering if these are really vegan since they have palm oil in them (or any of my other recipes using palm oil), I use a sustainably sourced palm oil (from Spectrum Organic). Check out my recipe notes page to read a bit more about it!
