Golden berries are sweet and tart, high in Vitamin C and antioxidants that aid in neutralizing free radicals, have anti-inflammatory properties and are relatively low in fructose (a form of natural sugar found in fruit). 

These clusters combine good quality dark chocolate, toasted almonds and golden berries, making a sweet and sour, protein and fat packed snack or dessert that you will definitely love.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup good quality dark chocolate, chopped

  • 1/2 cup dried unsweetened golden berries

  • 1 cup dry toasted almonds

  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (optional)

Toasts almonds in a dry pan over low-medium heat until fragrant. Set aside. In a double broiler, melt chocolate until almost fully melted and remove from heat. Mix in almonds and golden berries. Form mixture into clusters and set on a sheet pan lined with wax paper. Sprinkle tops with sea salt if using. Place in freezer to set for at least one hour. Keep in freezer (or fridge) and defrost for 2 min whenever you crave something sweet.
