Notes

I keep these recipes small so that you don’t have a whole batch of these sitting around the house tempting you. You can even half this recipe if you want. You can fulfill your dessert or chocolate need and then move about you day. Saves you from binging and feeling bad afterwards. So rich, you will feel done after one. Low glycemic means no cravings and no sugar spikes. Yay!

Almond Chocolate Nut Clusters Recipe – Keto, low glycemic

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Lily’s dark chocolate chips (keto friendly)
  • 3 almonds, salted

Notes

I keep these dessert recipes small, often cutting out a lot of extra ingredients so that you only make it when you really want to dessert, you don’t have a whole batch of these laying around the house that’s constantly tempting you. So when you just absolutely have to have chocolate you can have it in a keto friendly way and you can make it in about less than 5 minutes. Another good example would be my chocolate chip cookie dough keto friendly recipe that you can make again and probably less than 10 minutes and enjoy. I make them in small batches so that I don’t overeat and you can keep moderation and count the calories small while still enjoying dessert, you don’t have to binge and feel bad or guilty about it afterwards, it can be incorporated in your daily calories.

Directions

Put 1/4 of a cup of Lily’s dark chocolate chips into a microwavable bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave for another 30 seconds. They should be pretty well melted if some of the chocolate chips aren’t that’s okay you’re going to refreeze freeze them anyway so that you can eat the chocolate treats. Poor or scoop the melted chocolate over three almonds that are laying on wax paper. Put the wax paper with your chocolate almonds cluster into the freezer for about 15 minutes. Take out and enjoy!

Tastes like the real thing, so glad I found this and my chocolate chip cookie dough recipe.
