Carob or Chocolate-Coated Almonds

I suppose that most people love chocolate-coated nuts as much as I do.

Carob Chocolate Coated Almonds

If they are in front of me, I can barely keep from eating them. However, they are not the healthiest snack in the world.  In the past, when I was eating sugar, I would justify eating them by thinking about the health benefits of chocolate and almonds while snacking on something that was clearly not good for me.

Well, this recipe is such a help.   It is a real treat without all of the sugar and chocolate.  Just enough sweetener and carob or chocolate to make the almonds taste like a treat, without enough to detract from their health benefits.

For this recipe, you can either use a dehydrator or your oven on its lowest temperature setting. The oven temperature, however, will be too high to keep the almonds truly raw. I recommend trying the oven, seeing how you like dehydrating things, and then moving to a good dehydrator once you know you will use it. I use mine all the time!

So here is another great snack for you and your family:

 

Oh–if you are like our family, you will want to double or triple this recipe to keep them on hand!

By the way, there is a product called Wonderslim Cocoa Powder on Amazon that has virtually all of the caffeine removed from it. It is a bit pricey, but nice for those of us who love chocolate but not the caffeine!

  1. I’ve got to try this! I have added it to my 101 Dehydrator Recipes link-up.

  2. Well, I did try this, but I keep forgetting NOT to use honey for stuff that’s going to be dehydrated. It was a mess, even though I only used 2 T. I had to put it in the oven and bake it, therefore killing the whole idea of it! Next time, I’ll use sugar, maybe with a little egg white or bit of water.

  3. Will these store ok out of the fridge? I think my dad would love these as a gift. Is it just a rancidity thing that u would keep in the fridge?

  4. thanks for the reply.
    the vanilla sounds lovely too! can’t wait to see the recipe :) i’m only new to your website & i am loving all your recipes. thanks for sharing.

  5. Have you tried this with Stevia? I would like to try it with Walnuts.
    Thank you!

  6. Thanks for the carob coating tips, I’ll hopefully try them this weekend. The coop I’ve bought from has discontinued carob almonds so I’m on my own, thanks.
