Coconut Nut Clusters


Co-co-nut-nut clusters are a quick and healthy snack, full of antioxidants, healthy fats, and protein. They're even detox-friendly.

Use a chocolate as dark as you dare, if not 85 percent then at least 72 percent. I added raw coconut flakes and walnuts, but you can use any raw nuts you like.

8 ounces dark chocolate, 72% or darker
1 cup raw unsweetened coconut flakes
1 cup raw walnut pieces

Warm the dark chocolate in a large glass or stainless steel mixing bowl over a pan of gently simmering water until just melted. Do not over-cook the chocolate.

Stir in the coconut and walnuts and mix until thoroughly combined.

Portion the mixture into 24 two-bite clusters and chill until firm.

Transfer them to a covered glass dish and store in the fridge until 30 minutes before you serve them.
