It is not a secret that I’m obsessed with Blue Diamond’s Whole Natural Almonds and I’ve been snacking on them every day since I got them. Raw almonds are a great source of protein and fiber, low in sugar and rich in vitamin E, magnesium, calcium and potassium. Often times, when I need a quick snack, I grab a handful of almonds and I’m all set.
I hate the fact that at times, after a workout I don’t have a post workout snack. I needed to do something about it. These are perfect for a snack or dessert.
I haven’t been baking a lot lately. I don’t currently crave a lot of sweets, but when I do, I prefer to make them myself. And they need to be with a healthier touch.
That’s exactly what these clusters are. Made with Whole Natural Blue Diamond Almonds, puffed millet, chocolate and cranberries, these are perfect for a quick snack or even dessert. You can store them in a zip lock bag at room temperature or in the fridge for about a week.
These Puffed Millet Chocolate Almond Clusters Recipe are the perfect treat for active people and provide extra energy and fiber. Want to know what exactly goes into your snacks? Then you should make them yourself. Focus on simple recipes like this one, this way you’ll have more time for your workouts, to keep yourself healthy and enjoy life.
If you aren’t familiar with puffed millet – it is an all natural, whole grain cereal with no added salt, sugar or artificial ingredients. With its complete protein and fat-free composition, it has been a staple longer than wheat and rice.
It makes a delicious cereal, but I also use it in granola bars and salads. I used it in this Kale Persimmon Salad and it tasted delicious.
Blue Diamond is the Official Snack Nut of USA Swimming, so they know a lot about workouts, workout recoveries and healthy lifestyle.
