Choclate Chickpea Cakes
  • 4-5 medjool dates (depending on how sweet you like your cake!)
  • 3 tbsp cashew milk
  • 1 tin chickpeas (drained, rinsed and patted dry)
  • 2 tsp cocoa
  • 3 tbsp nut butter
  • 1 tbsp milled chia
  • 2 tbsp porridge oats
  1. Finely chop the dates then soak them in the cashew milk for a few minutes before liquidising. Add the chickpeas and blitz again. Add the cocoa and nut butter and blitz a third time. It’s a thick mixture so you’ll need to scrape it down the sides of the processor. 

  2. Stir through the milled chia and oats.

  3. Try not to eat it all before it’s cooked!

  4. Press the dough into a lined 1lb loaf tin. Bake at around 180C until the top is dry and crispy, about 30 minutes.

  5. Cool on a wire rack, then chop into bite sized pieces.
