Yummy Easter Treats #Glutenfree & #Vegan

With just 2 weeks until the big Bunny shows up, I thought I'd better get planning some treats for the kids.  The stores are jam-packed with sugary, chemical-rich, nutrient-void neon Easter goodies right now.  And I don't want the girls to feel left out when I can't bring myself to buy that junk.  So again, Pinterest saves the day!  Check out some of these fabulous Easter treats you can make at home and actually contain some real ingredients.

Fun & Easy Glutenfree Treats for Kids

It's a P.D. Day on the homestead today and I thought it might be fun to do a little baking with the girls.  Stella loves helping me in the kitchen and Alice is our official taste tester.  But the recipes need to be quick and simple as the girls lose interest pretty quickly.

So here's a few simple treats I found that the kids will love to make and they're all Gluten-free and Vegan (or can be made vegan)!
