recipe: HEALTHY rich black bean fudge
rich black bean fudge
Fudge has always been one of my favorite indulgences. As it is traditionally loaded with sugar, or condensed milk I decided to come up with a dairy, gluten and sugar free recipe. This rich chocolatey version has an incredible silky texture and is decadently creamy and sweet. You would never guess that it is made out of organic black beans. Enjoy! -
1 can organic black beans, drained (you could also use lentils)
4 heaped tbsp honey
4 heaped tbsp good quality cocoa
6 tbsp coconut butter (you could also use coconut oil or cocoa butter)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract a pinch of sea salt
Line a small square or rectangle tray with baking paper. I used a small kids shoe box, as I did not have a tray small enough.
A tupperware container could work also.
Place all ingredients in to a food processer and blend until completely smooth.
Spoon in to the prepared tray or container. Place a piece of baking paper on top of the mixture. Press down until evenly smoothed out.
Place in the freezer for 1-2 hours to set.
Remove from the freezer and transfer to a chopping board. Carefully peel off the baking paper, then cut in to bite size pieces.
Makes 35-40 pieces.
Best kept in the fridge, or even in the freezer for a fudgey frozen treat
