What is Monk Fruit?

These cookies are sweetened with Lakanto monk fruit sweetener. A sugar substitute that is great for those of you who are looking for different ways to sweeten you baked good treats.

But what is monk fruit? Let me tell you all about it.

Monk fruit is a Chinese fruit that grows in the southern part of China. Its native name is Lo Han Guo or 罗汉果. The fruit looks like a monk’s bald head, hence the name monk fruit. 

Growing up in China, my mom always gave me dried monk fruit to help with soothing coughs and a sore throat.

Lakanto sweeteners are a fun substitute to regular granulated sugar!

Ingredients needed for Your Magic Cookie Clusters

To make these healthy and delicious cookies, all you need are eight easily accessible ingredients:

Magic Cookie Cluster Ingredients

  • Unsalted butter or vegan butter for dairy-free option (cold and cubed)
  • Monk Fruit Sweetener (I used Lankanto Brown Sugar replacement. If you want to try, I worked out a discount code for you! Use SHUANG15 to get 15% off when you make purchases on Lakanto’s website!)
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Chocolate chips 
  • Chopped Cashews, pecans and/or walnuts

How to Make These Magic Cookie Clusters

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

(Since the cookies are “stuffed” with magic goodies, you might need to form them into a ball by pressing them in your hands so they don’t fall apart).

Lastly, bake these magic cookie clusters for just 15 minutes, no more and no less. 

The cookies will be VERY melty when they are hot out of the oven. Once they are taken out of the oven, you can gently push the sides in with a spatula to form a rounder cookie if desired. To be honest, even if your cookies are imperfectly shaped, they’ll still taste absolutely amazing.

Let the cookies cool for at least 20 minutes before indulging (or they will fall apart).

Enjoy and Happy Baking!

How to Store Your Magic Cookie Clusters

  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter or vegan butter for dairy free option, cold
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, I used Lankanto Brown Sugar replacement
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, *I used chocolate, white chocolate, and butterscotch chips by lilys
  • 3/4 cup cashews , chopped


  • In a bowl, combine cold cubed butter, brown sugar, coconut flakes, chocolate chips and chopped cashews, and mix by hand.
  • Mix together until well incorporated.
  • Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rest in the freezer for 20 minutes or in the fridge for 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Use a cookie scoop or a tablespoon to scoop up the cookie dough. Roll it into 10 balls and press and form each ball into a cookie shape- top with a little more coconut flake if desired!
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Let the cookies cool for at least 20 minutes (or they could easily fall apart).


*Since the cookies are “stuffed” with magic goodies, it may be hard to get them flat like a traditional cookie shape. Press and form with your hands firmly so they stick together.
