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!
