Barlean's Coconut Oil
Is it possible to have delicious butter taste with a vegan lifestyle? Yes! Thanks to the secret ingredient from one of our favorite sponsors: Barlean’s.
Sponsor or not, their Butter Flavored Coconut Oil is amazing. It is the only coconut oil I use and I put it in loads of things from cooking with it in recipes like Chocolate Granola and Lemon Bundt Cake to drizzling it on popcorn.

Dark Chocolate Nut Clusters
- ½ cup coconut oil (I used Barlean's Butter flavor)
- ½ cup honey
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- ½ cup nut pieces (halves or quarters - you want them big) (pecans, walnuts, almonds, etc.)
- In a blender combine coconut oil, honey, cocoa powder and vanilla until smooth.
- Pour into a bowl and fold in nuts.
- Line mini muffin tin with liners. Add a spoonful of chocolate mixture to each one.
- Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours. It is best to store these in the fridge until ready to eat.
