Chocolate Nut Clusters
4 ozs Dark Organic Chocolate (at least 75% cacao, chopped)
1 tsp Coconut Oil
1 cup nuts (i used a mix of raw walnuts, macadamia and almonds)
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp sea salt (mix into chocolate and/or add on top of nut clusters)
Microwave dark chocolate and the coconut oil in a large glass bowl at 50% power for 30 seconds at a time until melted. Stir well to combine.
Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add nuts to the melted chocolate and stir to combine. Use a spoon to drop small, even clusters (containing about 4 to 5 nuts each) onto the parchment paper. The number of clusters you make should be equal to your serving size.
Sprinkle coconut (or sea salt flakes) overtop of each cluster immediately. Transfer to the freezer until the clusters are set, about 15 minutes.
Remove from the freezer and enjoy!
Mix up the flavor and add 2-3 drops of a pure ingestible essential oil like doTerra. I love wild orange and peppermint.
Paleo or avoiding refined sugar? Use 100% cacao dark chocolate and add honey or maple syrup to achieve desired sweetness, starting with 1-2 teaspoons.
