Chocolate Crunch Clusters

Looking for a super simple Valentine’s Day treat? I love these almond clusters because they are full of alkalizing protein. By making your own treats you can make sure to leave out the gluten and dairy, making this recipe decadent and good for you.

Makes approximately 22 clusters


  • 1 package 10 oz bag of mini gluten, dairy, and soy free chocolate chips by Enjoy Life
  • 2 cups of raw almonds – coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup currents


  • Vietnamese cinnamon – to sprinkle on top
  • Maca powder- enough to sprinkle on each cluster (less than a tablespoon)
  • Handful of goji berries- 1 goji berry per cluster
  • Finely ground coconut flakes – to sprinkle on top


Fill up a medium sized sauce pan ¼ full with water. Place chocolate chips in Pyrex measuring cup (4-cup size) and place in sauce pan (creating a double boiler effect). Turn on low heat. Slowly melt the chocolate chips, stirring frequently. Once melted, add the nuts and currents. Stir until well mixed. Spread out a sheet of wax paper. Spoon out about a tablespoon of the chocolate nut mixture on to the wax paper and shape into a round cluster. If desired, sprinkle with maca powder, cinnamon, and coconut. Place one goji berry in the middle of each cluster. Let sit out until firm then package up and store in the fridge or freezer (if they last that long!)
