Easter Bird’s Nest Cookies


Hey guys! I can’t believe Easter is just around the corner. Happy thought.

Another happy thought…only a couple more weeks of my courses and I’ll be free! I am ridiculously excited about this. I’m also excited about these little goodies…


These no-bake oat cookies have always been a family favourite and one of the first cookies I ever made as a child. I revised the recipe to make it healthier and turned them into cute bird’s nest for Easter!

Bird’s Nest Cookies

  1. 1 cup organic sugar
  2. ¼ cup almond milk
  3. ¼ cup coconut oil
  4. 1 tbsp. cocoa
  5. ¼ cup organic peanut butter
  6. 2 cups quick oats
  7. 1 cup unsweetened coconut
  8. ½ tsp. pure vanilla
  9. Small chocolate eggs

Mix the sugar, milk, oil, and cocoa together. Bring just to a boil, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients.

Drop by spoonful onto wax paper. Let cool (they will harden as they cool). Make little indentations in each cookie and add 2-3 chocolate egg candies on top. Enjoy!


This is a great recipe for kids to help you make…


Floor Hockey

As for the floor hockey tournament we had on Saturday, it went well…it was awesome to just hang out with friends and play hard. Our team definitely did the best we’ve done in the last 3 years, so that’s something to be excited about. Accident prone me, turned both of my ankles in the game (yes, both of them) and now I have elephant ankles. Oh well, at least I played hard enough to earn them. Last year’s floor hockey tournament had me in the ER because we thought I had cracked my ribs and I couldn’t breathe. Anyway, it’s stupid. Whenever I get hurt, it’s because I did something silly like tripping. The ground I walk on hates me.

So no working out for me this week…the thought is ridiculous anyway since I’m barely tripping downstairs.


On another note, it’s Kelly Olexa’s birthday! Most of you know, I’m an ambassador for FitFluential…well, she is the founder of this amaaaazing company and she is equally amazing. I love her vlogs, her sense of humor, and her brilliant schemes. Happy Birthday Kelly!

So what are you doing for Easter? Are you familiar with FitFluential?

    Those cookies look so cute! What a great idea! My daughter just learn how to say “birdie” (she is 18 months) I’m gonna make her some! Thanks for sharing!

    Aww! These cookies remind me of the cookies I used to make with my mom and sister when I was little. But, they’re healthier and vegan! YAY! I’m definitely going to make these this week (considering I already have all of the ingredients, it would be a crime not to…)
    Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    …Oh, and I’m definitely going to find you on instagram, by the way. (:

    Yummy! I used to love these little nests (the prepackaged ones that have everything bad under the sun in them…) but now, I can make my own way healthier version. Yay!

    Happy Birthday, Kelly! I follow her (and FitFluential) on twitter and Pinterest. :)

    Bummer, these didn’t work for me as written. They sure taste good, though! I’m wondering if 5 mins is too long. At that point, nothing wanted to stick together, like it was too dry. Anyway, it seems like a good recipe, I’ll just experiment a bit with it so mine come out like yours. :)

    HiHoRosie- Thanks for your comment, I realized I wrote something incorrect…you actually just bring it to a boil, when it’s sticky. So sorry for that mistake (I changed the recipe).
    First time, I’ve ever written a recipe wrong. I’m horrified with myself! :)
    Happy Easter!

    yum. i’d just eat nests all day long…

  17. hihorosie

    That’s okay! I made them again (before I knew you wrote back) and they turned out way better. Still not as lovely as yours but they’re tasty!
