How to Make Paleo Chocolate Coconut Clusters

My husband is addicted to Costco’s dark chocolate coconut clusters, so as a piece of mind, I had to make him his favorite treat with Paleo-approved ingredients.

This Paleo rendition of Costco’s product is not only easy to make, but it will also save you money (and your health) by using Paleo-approved nutrient-dense ingredients already found in your pantry.

Before you get started! The ingredients won’t wholly stick together when placing them onto the prepared baking sheet (that is okay)! Once the clusters bake, the maple syrup will bond them together, and then the melted chocolate will add an additional bonding element once cooled.

You’ll want to read this blog post in its entirety for more helpful tips and tricks you’d typically by-pass. Or, if you are feeling lucky, jump to the recipe below and get started!

Either way, I’d love to hear how your chocolate coconut clusters turned out, so please leave a comment and share it with your friends and family.

How to Make Paleo Chocolate Coconut Clusters

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.

2. In a large bowl, combine coconut flakes, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, maple syrup, and sea salt.

3. Using 2 spoons, drop into clusters onto the prepared baking sheet and gentle squeeze ingredients together.

Tip: The ingredients won’t wholly stick together (that is okay)! – once the clusters bake, the maple syrup will bond them together, and then the melted chocolate will add an additional bonding element once cooled.

4. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until the coconut flakes turn golden brown. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow clusters to cool completely.

5. While your clusters are baking, start melting the chocolate over low heat in a small saucepan, stir frequency to avoid burning.

6. Using a spoon, drizzle, or pour melted chocolate over each cluster. Place the baking sheet into the refrigerator and chill for 20 to 30 minutes until chocolate has hardened.

7. Carefully remove chocolate clusters with a spatula and enjoy!
