I want to introduce you to my new GF BFF, Bailey! She’s one of the smart cookies behind the popular website Gluten-Free Best Friends. Her normal partner in crime, Mahaley, was kind enough to let me crash their kitchen for the day. Can’t you tell how excited I was?! “Hi-eeeee!”
Bailey taught me tons about gluten-free baking, and helped me create adorable Easter cookies that are both GF and vegan!
Watch the tutorial here, or keep scrolling for directions:
Peanut m&ms, Jellybeans or "egg" of choice for decoration
Mix all dry ingredients making sure to mix all the different flours together
Mix in wet ingredients
Roll into balls and coat in coconut flakes while shaping into nests with thumb
Bake at 325 for 7-10 minutes
Fill with mini eggs
I love the idea of wrapping these sweet little cookies up in an egg cartoon! I found one with exceptionally bright colors from Vital Farms (available at Whole Foods). I simply wrapped some orange burlap ribbon around the cartoon, printed out some of these FREE PRINTABLES and tied it all up with string! Such a sweet (and eco-friendly) way to bring your Easter hostess a treat.
A huge thank you to Bailey and Gluten-Free Best Friends for sharing their knowledge and kitchen with me! Check out their site, subscribe to their videos, and follow them on Facebook and Twitter!
