Fructose and Gluten Free – Easy Nutty Clusters

I know. I know. I can’t get out of the kitchen! I love cooking! Yes I’m weird! I love sharing my successes with you and being smug and pretending there are no failures (trust me there are lots!)

Nutty Clusters! Back off kids, these are for mumma.

I had accidentally ordered half a kilo of flaked almonds the other day. Normally we chuck these into our yoghurt for a bit of crunch, but half a kilo? Crap. What am I going to do with all of these?

Last night the kids were driving me bananas so I put them to bed early. I closed all the blinds at 3pm and exclaimed it was “very late and it’s time for bed” at 5.30pm in the afternoon. Then it came over me. I needed to get my baking on. The urge was strong. I needed to use these almonds! Soon I was gazing into the pantry wondering what they could be combined with to make a “Cornflake kisses” type of treat, using real food and not a tonne of sugar! So I pulled a few things out of the pantry and here we have it!

OMG! Deliciousness!

These little gems have a delicate sweetness about them. Add more Rice Malt or a pinch of stevia if you like them sweeter.

Yes you can quit sugar and eat yummy sweet things (you know…if you want….)

Fructose Free and Gluten Free – Easy Nutty Clusters
Makes 24 small clusters

3 dessertspoons of Rice Malt Syrup
1 tablespoon of butter
1/2 cup of natural peanut butter made from 100% peanuts with no sugar and nothing else. Buy it or make your own. Crunchy or smooth, doesn’t really matter.
1 1/2 cups of flaked almonds
2 pinches of sea salt

Combine the ingredients in a small saucepan. When the butter and RMS is well combined, let the mixture cool slightly, then spoon clusters onto a baking paper lined tray. Put into the fridge to set.

If you have a Thermomix, chuck it all in, Give it 100 deg Celsius for 2 minutes and put the blades in reverse position. Scoop onto your tray and put in the fridge.

THAT’S IT!

  1. OMGoodness!!! These are sooooo yummy & super easy…another winner in our house Taryn. I didn't even get a chance to take a photo. I added some macadamia nuts to the mix for some extra crunch. Lemon tart is cooling in the fridge for afternoon tea ;-)Thanks…Love,Mell S.
