Are you a snacker?!

I have always enjoyed a fair share of sweet and savory snacks since I was a little girl. As I got older and became a busy adult, I realized how important nutritious snacking can be to help me power through the day and avoid a midday slump.  This snack is the perfect go-to when you crave a little something sweet or need that boost of afternoon energy.  These cookie clusters are made with just 5 simple and common ingredients that can provide you with a dose of carbohydrates and healthy fats to hold you over till your next meal-time! I also love how easy these are to batch cook and store in the fridge for the week.  If you are an on-the-go snacker, these cookie clusters may definitely become your next go-to choice!
