Healthy vegan chickpea fudge
This scrumptious vanilla and chocolate-chip soft fudge uses a surprise ingredient as its hidden power: chickpeas. It is very easy and fast to make, with just a few ingredients, filled with protein, and super tasty. No one will guess it is made from chickpeas!
- Preparation Time: 10 minutes
- Cooking Time: 0 minutes
- Chill: 4 hours
230 gchickpeas cooked and drained
1 tbspvanilla extract
2 tbsphazelnut butter or peanut butter
50 gagave syrup or date syrup
120 mlmelted shea butter or refined coconut oil
50 gvegan chocolate chips optional
Blend chickpeas in a blender or food processor until smooth, scraping down the sides of the container between pulsings. While blending, slowly add the vanilla extract, the nut butter, and agave syrup, until completely combined into a smooth mixture. Then slowly add the melted butter, while processing at high speed.
Transfer the mixture to a square container about 15×15 cm, lined with parchment paper. Fold in the chocolate chips and gently smooth out the surface with a spoon. Sprinkle some salt flakes on top and chill for at least 4 hours in order for the fudge to firm up. Once firm, remove from the container, cut into squares, and serve.
I recommend using hazelnut butter for this recipe because of its nougaty taste, but any nut butter will do.
