My next door neighbour Jo has, for some reason I will never understand, given up flour, sugar and butter for lent. Insanity!
I didn’t really like the idea of going 40 days without taking her any baked goods, so when I saw these German chocolate fudge bites on Chocolate Covered Katie I knew instantly they would have to be made for Jo.
As well as being free of pretty much everything bad for you, they’re also incredible quick and easy to make, and use just four ingredients (possibly four of my favourite ingredients) AND are only 50 calories each!
Sounds too good to be true, but they really do work!
Flour, sugar and dairy free chocolate fudge bites (recipe adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie)
Makes 15 small bites
- 120g pitted dates
- 50g pecan nuts
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder, plus extra to coat
- 2tbsp desiccated coconut
Put all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz until everything is well-chopped and well-mixed. Transfer the mixture into a bowl and knead until it comes together. Roll out 15 small truffle-sized balls, and chill in the fridge for half an hour. Roll each bite in more cocoa powder before serving.
