Gooey Fudge Type Bites

 

I had given up on healthy baking.¬†After I was duped into the ‘healthy chocolate cheesecake brownie’ avocado disaster, which tasted like avocado and gravel, I decided baking was one thing that shouldn’t be tampered with. If you need a sugar fix, there is no substitute. You can’t trick me, I’m a seasoned professional. Get me a toffee crisp. Covered in salted caramel. Deep fried.

However, yesterday, when faced with a desperate sugar craving but an equally desperate desire to not walk outside in the storm to the shops, I had an idea. With an enormous amount of ingredients left over from the first failed ‘healthy’ attempt, I experimented. And BINGO, I discovered this super quick, incredibly gooey tasty treat. They’re not gonna be one of your five a day but better than using a shed load of sugar. It’s vegan friendly too if you’re that way inclined. Enjoy…

 

Ingredients

25g Cacao Powder

60 ml Maple syrup

60ml Coconut Oil

1 Tbsp all natural nut butter

1/4 tsp Sea salt to taste (I was quite liberal with this)

 

Method

Scoop/pour the coconut oil, maple syrup and nut butter into a pan over a low/medium heat. Sift the cacao powder into the mix. Once melted and mixed in together, remove from heat

Serve up into little dollops onto baking paper or if a little neater, scoop into cake cups/case

Wait to cool or refrigerate, then eat as many as possible!

I made a lot more than these but I smashed them all too quickly. My cravings know no bounds.

You’ll need these…

 

 

 

Don’t judge by their looks. Doesn’t get any better than this.

It’s pretty hard to dress these up. Who cares, just eat. SO GOOD.
