Need a sweet boost of energy in the middle of the day? Our Banana Nut Coconut Clusters are like a healthy no-bake cookie! They’re sweetened naturally with coconut sugar and banana, and of course we’ve included cocoa powder. We used almond butter and almonds for protein while coconut, oats, and sunflower seeds give them texture.
These nut clusters are as easy to make as a no-bake cookie, but they’re actually good for you! Whip up a batch to store in the fridge for times when those sweet cravings hit.
