The Kitchen Shed - Clean Eating Easter NestsI don’t think I have been as excited about another one of my blog recipes as I am about this recipe! I am SO excited!!

Because honestly, it wouldn’t be Easter without an Easter Nest in my opinion so there was no way that I was giving up on creating a delicious clean eating version!

The Shredded Wheat are clean anyway so I knew that if I could just work out a way to hold these nests together, I could still enjoy them as part of a Clean Eating Easter. I needed some chocolate, that wasn’t chocolate! I did a bit of research and found that ‘chocolate’ bars have been made using coconut oil and cacao powder, so I tried out a little combination and to my sheer delight, it worked!

Clean Eating Easter Nests are sweet and crunchy with a slight hint of coconut. You can fill them with grapes, raspberries or blueberries and your kids (and husband) will love them! Easter can come now that we have these little beauts!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Gently melt the coconut oil in a saucepan.
  2. Once melted, whisk in the maple syrup and cacao powder until combined. Set to one side.
  3. In a mixing bowl, break up the shredded wheat until it resembles fine straw.
  4. Pour the melted coconut oil mixture into the shredded wheat and mix until combined. - I used my hands for this, but you could use a spoon if you wanted to.
  5. Once coated, take a teaspoon or two of the mixture and press it firmly into a mini muffin pan with your spoon, creating a small well in the middle to make it look like a nest.
  6. Once you have used up all of the mixture, you should have made around 8 nests.
  7. Place the muffin pan into the fridge and allow the nests to set for half an hour. (You can leave these as long as you like though)
  8. Once you are ready to take them out, carefully use a small plastic teaspoon to ease the nests out of the muffin pan and place them into a tupperware pot to store in the fridge until needed.
  9. To serve, fill each nest with grapes, blueberries or raspberries.Keep Refrigerated.
