Want to get your inorganic nitrates fix in and enjoy a sweet dessert, too? Try these Chocolate Covered Apricots. The sweet, plump, juicy apricots are the perfect partner for the equally healthy dark chocolate.


1 cup dried apricots

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1 tbsp tahini or almond butter or coconut oil

2 tbsp pistachios salted or unsalted.


Add chocolate chips and tahini to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute, then stir well (1-2 minutes) until the chocolate is completely melted.

If you find that the chocolate chips won’t melt completely this time, place them back in the microwave for an additional 15-20 seconds.

Chop the pistachios.

Place parchment paper or wax paper on top of a baking sheet.

Dip the apricots in the melted chocolate, covering about 1/2 way. Lay them down on the lined baking sheet.

Sprinkle the chocolate-dipped apricots with chopped pistachios and a sprinkle of flaky salt while the chocolate is still tacky. Note you may need to pause halfway through to sprinkle with the nuts so the chocolate doesn’t harden; this will depend on how hot/cold your kitchen is.

Allow the chocolate to harden completely on the counter or in the fridge before serving.
