Healthy Chocolate Chips and Clusters | BelleSavvy
In the mood for something a little sweet? These healthy chocolate chips and clusters snack will satisfy that craving!

Raw cacoa powder is not only incredibly delicious, it’s full of important minerals like magnesium and iron. Magnesium is a fantastic mineral that can relax muscles, lower blood pressure and improve your cardiovascular system.

There are almost too many good things to say about coconut oil. More than just providing a rich, creamy texture, the medium-chain fatty acids are a great source of quick energy without a blood sugar crash. If you add almond flour it has a slightly grainy texture but a wonderful nuance of flavor. Chia seeds have a smooth texture and are a great source of calcium and omega-3 fatty acids. And coconut sugar is packed with beneficial minerals like iron, zinc, potassium and calcium. A hint of cinnamon adds depth to the flavor.

Adapted from Mannatech’s TruHealth recipes, you can combine the ingredients either into thin, crispy chips or bite-size clusters.

Either way, these are perfect when you need a bite of something sweet. Especially if you’re transitioning and want to decrease your sugar cravings!
