Easter treats don't have to be sugar-laden and found in the store! These cute little coconut nests and raw chocolate eggs make the perfect little Easter treat that the kids can create themselves. 

COCONUT NEST INGREDIENTS 

  • Patty cake papers
  • 1 cup shredded coconut 
  • 3 tbsp coconut butter or tahini  
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil 
  • ½ cup coconut cream (additive free) 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional: we left out and thought they tasted great but if you want some extra sweetness, add this in) 

WHAT TO DO 

  1. Line a muffin tray with your patty cake papers. 
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together coconut butter, coconut cream, vanilla and coconut oil. 
  3. Pour evenly into the patty cake papers and sprinkle with the shredded coconut to form nests. 
  4. Place into the freezer to set. 

RAW CHOCOLATE EASTER EGG INGREDIENTS 

  • 1/4 cup raw cacao 
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup 
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil 
  • 1/4 cup melted cacao butter (approx. 40g) 
  • mini easter egg molds 

WHAT TO DO 

  1. In a medium sized bowl, heat the cacao butter, coconut oil and maple syrup over a double boiler until completely melted together.
  2. Remove from the heat and mix in raw cacao powder. 
  3. Spoon chocolate mixture into egg molds and place in the freezer to set. 
  4. Once nests and eggs are set, remove from freezer and top your nests with your raw chocolate eggs. We also topped some with crunchy granola and superfoods so we had a nice healthy mix!
