I picked up the Eat Clean Diet Cookbook about a year ago to help me create clean, healthy, and delicious meals and snacks. We have tried and enjoyed many of Tosca Reno's recipes and make them often.
The recipe I wanted to share with you today is the "Breakfast Fruit and Nut Cookie". I modified her recipe a bit to suit our needs and will share with you our modified version.
