Yummy Chocolate Almonds Recipe

Robyn Openshaw - Jan 24, 2010 - This Post May Contain Affiliate Links

I just made this recipe in my dehydrator yesterday. They didn't even finish drying before my kids finished them! So I'm starting a new double batch now. It's a great treat to get RAW, SPROUTED nutrition into your family's routine, and it's an easy way to use the raw almonds from this year's Group Buy.

Chocolate Almonds


  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • 1 tbsp liquid coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp date syrup
  • 1 tbsp raw chocolate powder (or nonalkalized unsweetened cocoa powder)
  • 1/4 tsp Original Himalayan Crystal Salt


  1. Soak your raw almonds in water overnight, then drain and allow them to air dry for an hour or two.
  2. Mix all remaining ingredients well, then stir in nuts.
  3. Spread evenly on dehydrator tray and dry until no longer wet/sticky (about 14-18 hours) below 116 degrees. Enjoy!

  2. Does dehydrating almonds change the taste or texture of the almonds?

    You all, are such inspirations to me as I am still on the beginning steps of my journey with all of you!

    Robyn…Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

    Trish…I would like to see your blog but when I try, the message at the top of the page says forbidden. I too live where people are not so healthy and those that care just look at me like I am a nut when I tell them about Robyn and the wonders of raw eating and the delicious green smoothies. One health fanatic friend of mine even thinks this idea of raw eating isn’t so healthy because he can’t find the information in a text book. So I have tried to enlighten him with Robyn’s book and others. No go for him! He is still counting every tiny calorie and weighing and measuring everything that goes past his lips. I often, silently, compare his meals to mine as I eat more and more raw…I am living a healthier way of life and eating better too!

    This sounds good…I have almonds drying now. I’ll take some out and make a batch.

    Am I still to keep soaked and dried nuts to about a 1/3 of a cup a day?

    Colleen (or anyone who might know), can you please tell me if the Date Syrup from Organics Are For Everyone is 100% raw? I checked it out at their site and it sounds great, but I wouldn’t want to use it if it’s been heated (cooked) in processing. Didn’t find anything there to indicate if it is raw or not.

    Thank you!

    Since I won’t have the funds to purchase a dehydrator until this summer, can I still eat the almonds and still get all the benefits?

    Is there a way to make the date syryp by taking date paste and soaking it in water until it is a mush?

    Would that work do you think?

    I am considering purchasing the Blentec. Can you explain why the Blentec is more beneficial to use than a food processor to make a green smoothie? Thank you for your input.
