Easter Egg Nests


 I really wanted a healthy snack this Easter and I saw how cute these were! They are super easy to make and super delicious! Give them a try! (And yes, they are topped with peanut m&ms as “eggs”. The nests are super healthy though! I also wanted to thank Joyfoodsunshine for this recipe! Enjoy!

Ingredients:
½ cup creamy peanut butter

¼ maple syrup

¼ cup coconut oil measured in solid state.

2 TBS unsweetened cacao powder

¼ tsp sea salt

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup quick cooking oats

¼ cup shredded, unsweetened coconut

Directions:

Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Set aside.
Combine peanut butter, honey salt and coconut oil in a saucepan and heat until melted and well-combined.

Stir in vanilla and cocoa powder.

Add quick-cooking oats and mix well.

Add coconut and stir until completely combined.

Drop 1 TBS portions of mixture onto your prepared baking sheet. Press into the shape of nests (if desired). Continue until you’ve used all your cookie mixture.

Let cool in the refrigerator or freezer until hardened. Top with your favorite candy eggs.

Serve cool or at room temperature. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator!
