Easy oat + nut cluster cookies
these soft and chewy, oaty nut cluster cookies won’t last long in the cookie jar
I love making these healthy oat & nut cluster cookies – they are so ideal for a delicious (yet healthy) treat, a cheeky little snack, or even part of breakfast (Lol, why not? They’re super healthy! Try having 2 of these cookies with a banana on the side for a healthy breakfast on-the-go).
I love having one of these cookies fresh out of the oven (they smell amazing) with some unsweetened almond milk, or even just on their own (they taste amazing) – let’s just say that these cookies won’t last long in the cookie jar.
This recipe is 100% gluten-free, sugar-free and dairy-free – and it also contains good carbs, good protein and healthy fats.
I hope that you love them as much as I do!
