Chocolate Cardamom Almond Clusters: Raw Food Dessert Recipe


makes about 12 clusters ~ $.26 per cluster


 
 
This chocolate recipe is from my Spring Raw Ebook, which you can still get HERE. I love the combination of cardamom and chocolate! You can buy whole cardamom and grind your own, or buy it already powdered.
 
ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons agave ($.20)
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder ($.40)
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom ($.05)
  • 1 cup almonds, soaked and dehydrated ($2.50) 
  • salt 
 
directions
  1. In a small bowl, stir together the agave and cacao powder until completely blended and the cacao powder is moistened. Add the almonds and stir until well coated. 
  2. Place on a lined dehydrator tray in clumps about an inch or two across. Sprinkle with a light dusting of sea salt. A chunky sea salt goes especially nice. 
  3. Dehydrate for several hours. Remove and let stand for several minutes before serving or packaging. The clusters will become more firm as they cool. 
 
 
Variation 1: Omit the cardamom if you like a more purely chocolate experience. 
 
Variation 2: Add a quarter cup of dehydrated cherries, which will add a sweet and tart element. 
 
These make great gifts placed in little paper boxes.
