If you are looking for something to make in under fifteen minutes then these sweet choccie clusters are a great place to start. I make them for my hubby for work to give a sweet treat which packs a little goodness. With almonds for protein and cherries and raisins for the added sweetness of fruit they are also pretty quick to mix up.
- 75g rolled oats
- 75g dried cherries
- 75g raisins
- 75g whole almonds
- 200g dark chocolate
- Break the chocolate up into pieces into a large mixing bowl, in a saucepan on a hob place enough boiling water so that it just misses the bottom of the bowl when sat on top. Melt the chocolate with the heat stirring frequently.
- Mix in a separate bowl the rest of the ingredients before adding the combination to the melted chocolate.
- Using two teaspoons, drop small teaspoons of the mixture on a baking tray covered with baking powder…this is enough to make approximately twenty pieces.
- Place in the fridge to set for about an hour.
When set take about 4-5 pieces and portion into freezer bags for a handy working day snack to keep you boosted.
Baking for kids? The recipe is still great for tiny lunchboxes but milk chocolate can appeal a little more to smaller tastebuds.
