Chocolate Coconut Clusters Recipe

This recipe is almost too good to be healthy, and amazingly, it is one of my family’s most delicious and healthy dessert recipes!

Chocolate Coconut Clusters

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.

Nutrient Rich Ingredients

The simple but nutrient dense ingredients are what make these so delicious, filling, and nourishing. They contain:

  • Coconut flakes: A great source of protein, fiber, and beneficial fats.
  • Coconut Oil: Has hundreds of uses and benefits. A great source of medium chain triglycerides and beneficial lauric acid. It is also filling and anti-fungal, making it effective at fighting overgrowth in the digestive track. I wrote another post about 7 ways to eat more coconut oil if you’re interested in incorporating more coconut oil into your diet.
  • Almond Butter: Another source of quality fats and protein and it provides great flavor to this recipe. Sub or leave out if you have an allergy.
  • Dark Chocolate: Good source of magnesium and antioxidants. Some studies even suggest it might lower the risk of heart disease.
