This recipe is almost too good to be healthy, and amazingly, it is the one of our healthiest dessert recipes! These chocolate coconut clusters also have only 5 ingredients, are simple to make and kids love them! My kids eat these like candy…. in fact, they prefer these to candy! They taste like a mixture of almond joy bars and raw coconut macaroons, and are a dessert you can feel good about letting your kids have because they are packed with healthy fats!
