Raw Chocolate Nutty Clusters
• RAW CHOCOLATE NUTTY CLUSTERS •
You might already know that I have a deep love for scorched almonds or any chocolate covered nut for a sweet treat #drool 😋 but have you seen the long list of ingredients on some of the packs 🤦🏻♀️🙈
Here is a simple recipe so you can whip up a batch at home 🍫 🥜
🥄 1/2 cup of cacao powder
🥄 1/2 cup of coconut oil
🥄 1/4 cup of sweetener (honey, maple syrup)
🥄 2 + 1/2 cups of nuts (I used an unsalted combo of macadamias, raw cashews & almonds)
🥄 1/2 cup of dried fruit / buckinis / seeds (I used inca berries, goji berries, currants & buckinis)
👩🍳 Method: If using raw nuts, place them on a baking tray and roast in the oven for approx 10 minutes or until brown ** keep an 👀 on them as it’s easy to get distracted - you don’t want to burn your nuts 😉 Let them cool on the baking tray.
Place cacao powder, coconut oil and sweetener in a bowl and mix together. Once mixture is combined, add in the roasted nuts and dried fruit / buckinis / seeds and spread the mixture onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Leave to set in the fridge and break into pieces... and voilà... you have a delicious sweet treat 👌🏻😍
Note: this tastes so much better if you use roasted rather than raw nuts, make sure the nuts have cooled before you coat them in the chocolate mixture - if they’re still hot, the mixture will be too runny and won’t stick.
