I am so excited to share this delicious nut cluster recipe with you! It is perfect for a quick grab-and-go bite of heaven for all my sweet tooth (or savory) lovers out there. This healthy snack is easy to make. It’s Paleo, Gluten Free, and Vegan…which makes it even better! These nut clusters are no joke! Once you take a bite, you seriously can’t stop because, they are SO ADDICTING and GOOD. It is very hard to find nut clusters or bars that don’t have all the unnecessary ingredients, so I took it upon myself to make these delicious chewy delights!

 Another reason I love this recipe is because, its loaded with nuts and seeds that are SO nourishing to our bodies and are packed with GOOD FATS. Just a handful of nuts/seeds packs a powerful punch of vitamins, minerals, and fats, that work together to affect your heart, and your brain. Nuts and seeds contain healthful mono- and polyunsaturated fats. These fats are essential to health by managing inflammation and maintaining the normal structure of every cell in our bodies. They contain protein, fiber, and a large variety of antioxidants. Here’s how you can make these little bites of goodness!
