Peanut Butter Banana Oat Nest Cookies

No-bake thumbprint cookies that double up as Easter nests! Fill them with dairy-free yogurt and top with chocolate-coated almonds (which take the place of “eggs”). You can, of course, use some berries instead, or chocolate-covered raisins or Brazil nuts, or – if you can get your hands on some – vegan-friendly mini eggs.

How to Make it

  • Mix together the oats through to milled flaxseed in a bowl.
  • Blend together the banana, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract (if using) in a jug or bowl.
  • Add the wet to the dry mixture and combine well. Set to one side to firm up a little.
  • Divide the mixture into 6 or 7 balls. Roll these in the palms of your hands and flatten to form 1-inch thick cookies. Use your thumb to create an indent in the middle.
  • Place cookies on a baking paper-lined tray or plate and place into the fridge to firm up for at least an hour.
  • Fill centres with dairy-free yogurt and top with “eggs” of choice. Scrumptious and seasonal!
  • Note: You could also fill the centres with peanut butter or marmalade or jam if you want something a little bit sweeter still…
