Sweet and Savory Furikake Carob Clusters
Recipe type: Dessert
dairy, egg, soy and gluten free, vegan
  • 1½ cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 1 cup pretzels, broken
  • 1 cup whole cashews
  • 3-4 tablespoons furikake
  • ½ cup brown rice syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter (Earth Balance stick)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ¼ cup carob powder
  1. Line two baking sheets with parchment.
  2. In large mixing bowl, combine cereal, pretzels, cashews, furikake. Set aside.
  3. In saucepan over medium heat, combine syrup and butter, stirring until melted and smooth.
  4. Remove syrup from heat, pour over cereal pretzel mixture, stirring to coat completely.
  5. Using a small spoon, make small (two bite) stacks of cereal clusters (use one hand to form so they are not too big / flat). Place on baking sheet to dry - set aside until dry to the touch before topping with carob:
  6. In a small saucepan over lowest heat, melt coconut oil. Add carob powder, remove from heat. Stir to combine completely – carob will be a thick paste consistency, but will “melt” for drizzling.
  7. Store in airtight container for 7 to 10 days.
