How to Make These Keto Almond Clusters
These sugar-free almond clusters are one of my favorite sweet snacks since they are super easy to make quickly. Here is everything you need to do:
- I chopped one of my favorite dark chocolate bars into little pieces to melt easier in the microwave. Make sure that the dark chocolate you choose has at least 85% Cocoa. You can also use unsweetened chocolate flakes or dark chocolate chips.
- You can carefully melt these two ingredients in the microwave to make things faster or use the double boiler method (Bain Marie).
- Using a frying pan over medium heat, prepare the almonds and give them a nice roasted taste. Add the almonds and stir until they get a nice brown color.
- Let the almonds cool down, then coat them with the delicious chocolate we had just prepared earlier.
Drop tablespoons of the chocolate almond mixture onto ungreased baking sheets.

Thanks for the recipe! I've been trying not to use any artificial sugar, so I added a little vanilla instead of a sweetener, and they are wonderful!
How much vanilla..I’m going to try to make them and does it make them sweet enough?
Thank you for the wonderful, simple, quick, and easy recipe !

Macadamia Nuts, Walnuts or Pecans are great in this recipe. The macros will slightly change. You can use Myfitnesspal to calculate the exact macros for your ingredients.
