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?
