Easy Mini Bird Nests

Just 15 minutes is all you need to make these super cute easy mini bird nests.  I came up with this recipe because my kids are a little bored of eggs. I always try to offer protein rich foods in the borning.  Since most breakfast choices have so much carbohydrates, I had to think outside of the box.  We all know most kids including my sons love toast and anything with bread. Who am I kidding, adults love bread too. This is perfect for the upcoming Easter holiday.

You can also just make these without the coconut and just add just fruit on top for an everyday meal or snack.
