Guiltless Chocolate Recipes
Are you a big fan of chocolate but are looking for healthy ways to consume this delicious treat? Try two of our favourite recipes for "guilt-free" ways to eat chocolate! Our recipes have swapped out some of the naughtier ingredients but haven't taken away any of the tasty flavour. Did you know that Theobroma Cacao is the latin name for chocolate and literally means "Food of the Gods", we don't think anyone can argue with that!

Ingredients

240g drained chickpeas, must be patted dry
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
165 grams natural peanut butter or almond butter at room temperature

1 teaspoon baking powder
A pinch of salt if your peanut butter doesn't have salt in it
90 grams cacao nibs or dairy-free chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat your oven to 175°C. Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate, in a blender and pulse until very smooth. Gently stir in the chocolate chips. Form the shape of the dough balls with your hands and place onto parchment paper. Press to make more cookie shaped if you prefer.

Bake for about 10 minutes. The dough balls remain very soft.
