Easter No Bake Cookie Nests

Easter No Bake Cookie Nests • Paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, soy-free

Hey everyone! Let’s make Easter fun and healthier for kids this year!

Easter is coming in just a few days and I wanted to give you a better alternative to store bought Easter eggs and other sweets that your kids will enjoy.

I came up with these No Bake Cookie Nests that are super simple to prepare.

The cookies require no baking and take less than 15 minutes to make.

As a healthy alternative to candied eggs, I decided it would be cool to dip some raw almonds in dark chocolate and used them to decorate the nests as little chocolate eggs.

The nests are made with coconut butter and unsweetened shredded coconut. Coconut and chocolate together are an awesome combination and taste amazing.

Happy Easter everyone!
