Nutty Grain-Free Granola Clusters Kids Love | Real Food RN

Feeding kids is about as easy as nailing Jell-O to a tree or perhaps herding cats?! My kids have always eaten the Real Food lifestyle, which means no junk. But it still poses its challenges! They seem to change their minds daily to make it even more fun. One day they are begging for cheesy eggs, the next day they can’t stand eggs, then its back to eggs that weekend. Oy! So recipe creation can be tricky, but this Nutty Grain-Free Granola Clusters recipe has been a big hit! Bonus: it lasts for two weeks in an airtight container, and you can make a double batch and freeze half! #momwin
