Gluten-Free Coco-Cocoa Clusters

Updated: Oct 16, 2018

Recent changes in my health have prompted me to reassess some of my dietary practices. That includes eating more gluten-free foods, as well as avoiding dairy and soy. For this reason, I've decided to share some of my recipe experimentation with you! And, while I am new to this world of gut-friendly grub, I promise I won't steer you wrong.

Recipe #1 consists of these gluten-free coconut-chocolate clusters, which I personally refer to as Clusterf*ck Cookies. Why? Because they are a bit of a clusterf*ck, but still undeniably delicious. These cookies are:

🌼 Gluten-free

🌼 Flourless

🌼 Dairy-free

🌼 Low carb

🌼 No sugar added

🌼 No-bake

Without further ado, lets begin!

The Mission: Gluten-Free Coco-Cocoa Clusters

Time to Complete: 25 min. (5 min prep time, 20 min freezer time)

Yields:Approx. 20 clusters

Your Accomplices:

🌼 3 cups gluten-free muesli (Bob's Red Mill brand recommended)

🌼 2/3 cup raw organic honey

🌼 1/2 cup coconut oil

🌼 1 cup almond or sunflower butter (whichever you prefer)

🌼 2 tsp vanilla extract

🌼 6 tbsp cacao powder

🌼 A dash of cinnamon & nutmeg (optional)

🌼 Coconut flakes (just enough to sprinkle on top)

The Game Plan:

Step 1: Line two (2) standard-sized baking sheets with parchment paper, you'll likely need them both!

Step 2: Combine the honey, coconut oil, almond (or sunflower) butter, and cacao powder in a pot. Stir the mixture over low heat until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed together. This shouldn't take longer than a minute.

Step 3: Once ingredients are evenly mixed, remove the pot from heat and add in the vanilla extract. This is where you'll throw in a dash of cinnamon/nutmeg too, should you desire. Stir again.

Step 4: Add in the muesli and stir together. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes to cool and thicken.

Step 5: Drop heaping spoonfuls of the mixture in little clusters on the baking sheets.

Step 6: Sprinkle coconut flakes on top. Place clusters in the freezer for 20 minutes.

Step 7: Enjoy!

The Result:

Chewy, oaty goodness.

Note: Cookies should be kept in a sealed container in the refrigerator for optimal quality.
