No-Bake Bird Nest Cookies (candy version)Although we don’t celebrate Easter, Liv & Sawyer learned about the holiday through Peppa Pig’s Easter egg hunt, and once they saw chocolate was involved, they begged me to join in on the festivities 😂. These no-bake nests taste like oatmeal raisin cookies and are naturally sweetened by dates. We used coconut flour, making it a grain free and gluten free treat. Oh, and for all those celebrating Passover, this works for that holiday too (as long as peanut butter is part of your tradition)! Cookies bring us all together✌️
