Cocoa Crunch Clusters
With just three ingredients plus a pinch of salt, these crunchy, nut-free snacks can be put together in a jiffy. The key is to use a 3:2:1 ratio of raisins:coconut:cacao nibs.
Instead of rolling these into balls, try pressing them into a pan and cutting them into cubes or bars instead.
