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.
