Cocoa-Coated Almonds

I enjoy those cocoa roasted almonds from the store, but they have a little sugar and potato starch in them.  Not protocol for no-sugar, no-starch diet during maintenance.  So I decided to try them myself!

Cocoa-Coated Almonds
  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil, in liquid form, butter, or grape seed oil
  • a few drops of liquid stevia, plain or flavored chocolate
  • 2-3 Tbsp. cocoa
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar substitute like zero calorie brown baking "sugar"
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut flour, or almond flour
  • 1/8 Tsp. kosher salt, crushed in a mortar and pestle
Preheat your oven to 275 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and grease your sheet using spray or oil.

Place almonds in a bowl and coat with the oil with a few drops of stevia. Use a spoon to ensure all almonds are evenly coated.

In a separate bowl, combine cocoa powder, sugar-free sweetener, GF /starch-free flour, and pinch of salt.

Add almonds to the dry mixture and stir until almonds are well coated.

Roast in your oven for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring every 5-10 minutes

Let cool completely before storing them in an airtight container.
