We enjoyed a spring break staycation with the girls. We spent a lot of time outdoors and on rainy days the girls and I rolled up our sleeves in the kitchen. We made these no bake Easter haystack cookies twice, they are that good. If you are looking for an easy and delicious Easter treat for your Easter celebrations these no bake Easter haystack cookies are perfect.
These cookies are made with only 7 ingredients; you probably have them in your pantry. These no bake Easter haystack cookies are not overly sweet and so easy to make that the kids can help make. To add an Easter touch we added mini milk chocolate eggs but you could leave them out if you prefer. To make these gluten free use gluten free oats and shredded coconut.
