It’s that moment of the day when I’d do anything for a sweet treat. But, you know when following a low carb, keto diet we should stay under 20g of carbs and sugar it’s a no no from the beginning (for many good reasons). Going easy and simple with the recipes it’s my key advice that I follow every day and keeps me accountable on the long run.
I could make tons of different recipes, which are low-carb, completely sugar-free and keto with only a few ingredients. Trust me, after you will make this Keto Dark Chocolate Almond Clusters, your cravings for sweet and crunchy dessert will be long gone.
Melted butter and dark rich chocolate with freshly roasted almonds and a bit of allowed sweetener sound heavenly to me. I used Tagatesse which it’s by far my favorite low-carb sweetener, and I’m sure you will love it too. It has no after taste and creates no tummy problems if consumed in moderation. You can buy it here!
If you don’t get along with sweeteners, you may not include it in this recipe, and the final product will still taste delicious.
I took one bar of my favorite dark chocolate and chopped into little pieces, so it can melt easier in the microwave. Make sure that the dark chocolate you chose has at least 85% Cocoa. You can also use flakes or dark chocolate chips.
There are many proven health benefits of eating dark chocolate. I chose to include only dark chocolate into my diet because it’s high in nutrients like iron, magnesium, copper, potassium, zinc and selenium. The fiber content it’s great, and you want to get as much fiber as you can in a keto diet.
It also can:
Improve Blood Flow and Lower Blood Pressure
Lower The Risk of Heart Disease
Protect Your Skin Against The Sun
Improve Brain Function & make you learn faster
Lower cholesterol level
To add more creaminess and healthy fats content I added some of my favorite grass-fed butter. Let me tell you a secret. Sometimes I eat butter with a spoon, and my health & energy levels have never been better.
We should not blame butter for what carbs did.
You can carefully melt these two ingredients in the microwave to make things faster, or you can use the double boiler method (Bain Marie) like here.
To prepare the almonds and give them a nice roasted taste you, use a frying pan on a medium heat, add the almonds and stir until they start to get a nice brown color.
Let the almonds cool down, then coat them in the delicious chocolate that we just prepared earlier.
If your mixture it’s too liquidy put it into the refrigerator for a few minutes. It will think up and make the composition easier to portion into little cute cookie-like shapes.
Drop tablespoons of the chocolate almond mixture onto ungreased baking sheets.
Let the almond clusters chill in the freezer for 30 minutes. Then they are ready to serve. They should look something like this.
This recipe yields 17 almond clusters, and 1g NET carbs each.
