24 clusters

Cooking Time



  • 1 cup popcorn
  • 1/2 cup oats (gluten-free if needed)
  • 1 cup total of mixed nuts, seeds, raisins, dried cranberries, cacao nibs, coconut flakes, goji berries, etc
  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 6 tablespoons brown rice syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lucuma powder (optional, but adds a caramel-like flavour)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 drops liquid stevia


  1. Line cutting board with parchment paper and make enough room in your freezer to accommodate it.
  2. Add the popcorn, oats, and trail mix ingredients in a large bowl, and toss to mix.
  3. Set a small pan over medium heat and stir the coconut oil, brown rice syrup, lucuma powder, sea salt, and vanilla together. Continue to stir as the coconut oil melts. Bring to a simmer and allow the mixture to simmer for 1 full minute. Stir in the stevia. Remove from heat and pour over the dry mixture. Use a spatula to mix, ensuring that everything is evenly coated in the syrup mix.
  4. Use a tablespoon-sized measuring spoon and scoop out heaped tablespoons of the mixture. Place on the prepared parchment-lined board. When all the mixture has been portioned out, transfer to the freezer to set for 20 minutes.
  5. Set clusters can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator. Will keep for 3 days. The clusters are best from the refrigerator, but they can stay at room temperature for about an hour without becoming too soft.
