Chocolatey Gooey Bites
These little sweet bites are rich and gooey. Eaten warm they will be soft on the inside but if left to cool they will firm up a bit.
Free from: gluten, oil, soya, wheat
This is a vegan recipe
- 1 tin chickpeas (drained, rinsed and patted dry)
- 4 medjool dates (finely chopped)
- 3 tbsp nut butter
- 1 tsp cocoa
- 1 tbsp milled chia
- cashew milk
Blitz all the ingredients except the cashew milk together in a food processor. If the mixture does not come together as a dough add a little cashew milk (a teaspoon at a time) and pulse to form a dough. Taste the mixture to check it’s sweet enough: if not add another chopped date or other sweetener and blitz again. If you can’t wait you can eat the mixture now as a kind of sweet hummus, or to form fudgy bites...
Press the dough into a lined 1lb loaf tin. Bake at around 180C until the top is dry and crispy, about 30 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack, then chop into bite sized pieces. These little cakes are quite moist and squodgy.
