These secretly healthy slices are mostly made out of veg, including white beans and sweet potato and you can make these sugar free, not to mention the addition of some cinnamon and dark chocolate adds antioxidants that are a bonus on top of the fibre loaded veg!
Plus these are grain, soy, wheat, dairy & gluten free and don’t require any flour either.
This is a great one for sneaking veg and more nutritional goodness into fussy eaters, they’ll never know there’s beans in there and seeing the dark chocolate will make them think it’s a proper dessert!
I love sweet cinnamon flavours but feel free to adapt this one to your tastes such as if you like a ginger and dark choc combo then you can add ginger spice instead.
Recipe (makes 5/6 slices)
1 can chickpeas/white beans (230g drained)
1 tsp Ceylon cinnamon
30g coconut sugar/granulated alternative e.g Natvia for sugar free
30g almond butter
1 egg (or flax egg if vegan)
120g cooked & cooled sweet potato
1 Tbsp ground flaxseed/hemp protein
25g dark chocolate chips (can use sprinkling of cacao nibs if you prefer the crunch)
Preheat the oven to 160c fan
In a food processor, blend together all the ingredients except the dark choc chips then stir these through once you’ve a smooth mixture
Spoon into a medium circular lined baking tin
Bake at 160C for 25mins then remove and allow to cool for 30mins before slicing. I actually prefer this the next day, when it’s fully cooled and firmer.
Store leftovers in the fridge.
