Vegan Coconut Energy Clusters with Aquafaba

Hi Savvys,

Having healthy snacks around the house for me is key to ensuring we don’t buy junk food impulsively.  I created this recipe after seeing so many people rave about the Costco coconut clusters and knew I wanted to try making it for myself.  I’ve never tried the Costco version, but I’m sure mine stands up to it well!

This recipe uses aquafaba (a.k.a bean water) as a binder along with chia seeds.  I always have an abundance of aquafaba in the freezer from when I cook dried chickpeas, so I make a conscious effort to try to use it up.

These clusters are a perfect road trip snack and stays crunchy for days (if they last that long)!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!

Now set forth and be savvy!
