Coconut Clean Snacks

Coconut Clean Snacks are a DIY knockoff of the clean eating version of Clean Snax by Melissa’s, made with simpler household pantry  ingredients.

Coconut clean snacks are my recipe of the day.

I had been shopping at Kroger recently when I grabbed a pack of Melissa’s “Coconut Clean Snax” and  really enjoyed them so thought I would try to make these at home, especially since I thought my  daughter might be interested in a money-saving scratch recipe.

Basically everything I needed to make it a go was in my pantry so I went for it.

These turned out amazingly similar except maybe mine are thinner. But I knew that was going to happen when I spread my mix and saw the pan was a bit big.

I was lazy so didn’t change it- didn’t want to waste my nonstick foil.

It turns out they get nicely crisp just like their thicker counterpart. Of course you  can try a smaller pan and a smaller cut if you want them in little squares. The bake time might possibly be a little longer.

I think you can use either honey or sugar-free honey in these (maltitol) or even a vegan equivalent.

  1. These sound so yummy! I was wondering what would be in these when I saw your comment about them earlier this week! I know I would love them…and they’d be crunchy nut death to B.O.B. Bob…which means that they’d be all for me!!!
