Easter Chics

 Where would all the brides, graduates, birthday parties and Holidays be today with out Pinterest!? Many years ago I was surfing around and came across these little Chickadee's, I changed a few things to make them healthier, without loosing any of the celebration!  Feel free to decorate them anyway you please, I chose to use pecans for the feet, an almond for the beak, mini chips for the eyes and red string licorice for the top feathers ... then I ate all the left overs...  :/   Have fun with it and let me know what creative ideas you come up with!  Each of the 10 Chics are only 90 calories, 4.3g net carbs, 1.2g protein and 7.2g fat.  Happy Easter  ;)

Ingredients for 10 Chics~
1 cup shredded, reduced fat unsweetened coconut (I use Let's Do Organic)
1 Tablespoon Coconut Flour (can sub with regular Flour)
1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons lite canned coconut milk (sub with regular)
2 Tablespoons Agave or Pure Maple Syrup
1/4 cup Swerve Granular Erythritol
Dash vanilla
Scant dash of light salt
20 Pecans
10 Almonds
20 Lily's Stevia Sweetened Dark Chocolate Chips
Red String Licorice

     Combine all ingredients in large mixing bowl and microwave for 3 minutes or until firm enough to scoop out in ball shapes.  Lay out 20 Pecans for feet on Silpat lined cookie sheet, then scoop 10 equal balls, rest each ball on top of 2 Pecan feet, stick a Almond in middle of face for beak, add 2 Chips for eyes and bake at 360 degrees for 14-16 minutes.  Remove and add pieces of Licorice for feathers.  Enjoy  ;)
