Superfood Nut and Fruit Clusters + Stevia Giveaway

All of our baking has been in the freezer lately! Treats come together so quickly when you don't have to bake them. Plus it's been really hot lately which is really weird for Canada at this time of year. We don't really know what to do. Half of us are still wearing our winter coats afraid that it will start snowing again like it usually does. I personally have been wearing full out summer clothes everyday this week! I'm also keeping cool with my favourite freezer treats including these jam-packed nut and fruit clusters using superfoods and a carob-chocolatey coating. 

For the coating:

6 tbsp almond butter
3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
10 drops vanilla stevia
1/4 cup carob powder

Combine in a bowl, set aside.

1/4 cup each of:

Raw almonds
Raw cashews
Sacha Inchi seeds
Goji berries
Hemp seeds
Dried cranberries (juice sweetened)
Coconut shreds (I dusted mine with spirulina, didn't really stick though)

Add nuts and fruit into chocolate mixture and stir until fully-coated. Scoop out onto parchment paper in cluster shapes. Freeze for about 2 hours. Eat. Feel super.

  42. I haven't had any form of sugar in over 3 months now, due to my anti-candida diet, including fruit. So not much sweetness going on in my food right now.

    The sweetest thing in my life is my amazingly supportive boyfriend, accepting my new strange diet and giving my the strength to continue when it gets hard.

    I would love to try the vanilla stevia, it sounds really good and I miss vanilla extract - I need to find a non-alcohol based one!
