Fruit and Nut Clusters Grain Free Vegan

Our good friend Joanne, who is on the SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) and who also cannot eat eggs was very excited to find this recipe from the Nuilife Coconut Oil company.  She brought us a sample to try and they are DELICIOUS.  These will especially appeal to those who cannot tolerate eggs, or who prefer to be vegan.  They are also excellent as a “breakfast cookie” or as a healthy vegan high protein snack.
