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)

  • Optional: Pure/high quality essential oil for flavor (see notes below)


  • Heat chocolate chips and coconut oil in a sauce pan over low heat until melted. Stir well to combine.

  • Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Add vanilla, orange oil and sea salt (if desired) and 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.

  • Optional: Sprinkle coconut (and/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.
