Coconut-Cottontails-16 I cannot believe Easter is this weekend! This year is going to go by so fast. Sorry for the lack of posts, bunnies! I am the maid of honor in my best friend’s wedding on May 2nd and I threw her a bridal shower last Sunday (a DIY from the shower coming this week)! On top of throwing the shower, I also had two house guests here from out of state so everything was a little hectic! I have seriously been dying to make more YouTube videos! I already have an absurd list of things I want to film for you guys and I cannot wait! For now, enjoy this super cute healthy Easter recipe!

These adorable little Coconut Cottontails (meant to look like fluffy bunny tails), mimic the flavor of a Coconut Cream Pie Larabar! If you are somebunny who likes Larabars, no bake snacks, or coconut, these are def for you! You may not carrot all (ha ha ha), but I just have to tell you that this recipe is gluten free, dairy free, soy free, vegan, and made from only 6 ingredients (one of which is water)!

    My favorite kind of desserts! The quick, easy, and delicious kind! Sometimes I will just blend dates and almonds for a snack! Dates really are natures candy!

    So kind of a weird question- I just started working out at full psycle (but in Chicago- thanks for the motivation!!) but when I check my performance I’m not really sure where my numbers should be? I would love to know where you aim to be numbers-wise since you are so in love with it and have used it as a weight loss tool! My numbers haven’t been consistent. Would you consider doing a post about your stats? Or if that wouldn’t appeal to enough people, I would love if you could shoot me a quick email or I’d even settle for a screen shot, haha. I know it is a personal thing, but the different numbers are pretty dang overwhelming and confusing and you seem to be killing it. Let me know!

    Do you use raw or roasted almonds and cashews?

      Hi Cait! I just checked and mine were both roasted and unsalted. Raw almonds and cashews work great too! Unsalted is preferred, but if you can’t find them, that’s ok!
