These tasty little morsels have to be the easiest snack to make!   All that has to be done is to place the dry ingredients into a bowl.

Add the sweetener, and mix really well.  You want to make sure that all of the ingredients are covered with the sweetener which will help to hold them together.

Using two teaspoons, gently drop clusters of the mixture on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake.

Once the coconut clusters are cool, carefully scoop them up from the bottom (they will be a bit fragile) and store them in a cool dry place for up to a week, that is if they last that long!

Here’s a little video that shows you just how easy these coconut clusters are to make!

  1. I found the honey just melted and the clusters turned into more of a baking sheet covered in seeds and coconut, then remained sticky and never firmed up even after I let them cool for a few hours. I baked them for 12 minutes and pulled them out when the coconut was golden. What have I done wrong???

    • I’m sorry to hear that janell. Maybe it’s the type of honey, I used honey from a local farm, try using a little less honey the next time and see if that works.

  2. Thank You Thank You Thank You…I’ve been searching everywhere for a copycat recipe for the Organic Coconut Bites I found at Sam’s Club that are made by Creative Snack Co. So glad I found this on Pinterest. I was sure the recipe would be simple enough but I was just too chicken to wing it on my own.

    • Carmae, that’s exactly what I was trying to do! If you make them, let them cool before removing from pan to allow the sweetener to harden enough to hold them together and remove from the bottom!

    • Hi Amanda, Yes some people have tried these and they said they were similar to the store-bought ones. If you make them be sure to let them cool before removing from pan and carefully scoop them off the pan with a spatula so that they don’t fall apart.

    • I made these about 2 weeks ago but I used a homemade coconut syrup instead of maple syrup and honey and I added sunflower seeds. I lined my baking sheets with parchment and baked it all together instead of in clusters. My favorite way to eat this is I cover a chopped apple with vanilla yogurt and crumble it on top.
