A nutritious alternative to other chocolate spreads on the market, being lower in sugar and salt, with all the benefits of chickpeas.
Prepare chickpeas by cooking in 3 ¼ cup water until well cooked (approx 1 – 1½ hrs).
Place warm chickpeas and remaining ingredients into the food processor and puree thoroughly. This could take approximately 10 minutes.
With the motor running, slowly pour in up to 6 tablespoons of water, one tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired spreading consistency.
Spoon into a jar and store in the fridge.
Store in a sealed container in the fridge.
If you wish to avoid peanuts/nuts, either replace the peanut butter with another nut butter/spread or omit it altogether.
This recipe could serve as a base for other flavours, only limited by your imagination. Try adding a splash of peppermint essence and eating with strawberries, use brown sugar in place of the castor sugar for a greater caramel flavour or replace peanut butter with coconut and spread on banana slices for a tasty snack!
