Quick snack: Cocoa Coated Almonds
Since then, I've upgraded a bit in cocoa powder and nuts and these bad boys were born...
Here's what you'll need:
1/2 cup (60g) organic raw almonds (or nuts of your choice)
1/4 tsp Valrhona 100% Pure Cocoa Powder
1 packet stevia
Coconut oil cooking spray
Just to show the difference between Valrhona (left) and Hershey's unsweetened cocoa powder. It's a preference thing but we like darker chocolate so we go with the Valrhona.
Spread the nuts on a cookie sheet.
Give a quick squirt of cooking spray so the almonds are coated and set aside.
In a separate tiny bowl (with lid), add the 1/4 tsp cocoa
Put on the lid and give it a shake to combine.
Put the nuts in a container with a lid.
Add the sweetened cocoa powder.
Make sure it's spread out as much as possible then put on the lid and give it a goodly shake.
When you're done, the nuts should be thoroughly coated.
Makes two servings of deliciousness and it's basically the same nutritional info as the nuts but add 5 calories.
A nice little chocolaty, protein kick when you need it!
