Ingredients

  • 2 cups sweetened coconut flakes

  • 1/2 cup almond flour

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Pinch of salt

  • Cadbury chocolate eggs

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit and line your baking sheet.
  • Add coconut to the food processor and pulse until in small pieces.
  • Transfer coconut flakes to a mixing bowl along and add almond flour, vanilla extract, coconut oil, maple syrup, and salt. Mix until combined.
  • Let it sit for 30 minutes to let the almond flour hydrate.
  • Drop by spoonful onto prepared cookie sheet. I like to use a cookie scoop. Use your thumb or a spoon to make an indentation in the center to form a nest shape.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them cool. They will set as they cool. Top with a few chocolate eggs.

Notes

  • If you want to use unsweetened coconut flakes, add 2 additional tbsp of maple syrup.
