  • 1 can of organic chickpeas, drained
  • 5 TBS mable syrup
  • 5 TBS melted cacao butter or coconut butter
  • 3 TBS cashew butter
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Pinch of cardemom

  • 5 TBS chopped dark chocolate
  • 5 TBS cacao nibs
  • 5 TBS gojiberries
     

Mix it all up

  • Add everything to a large bowl except chopped chocolate, cacao nibs and gojiberries.
  • Puree with a stick blender till the dough is completely uniform.
  • Stir in chocolate, nibs and gojiberries and mix well.
  • Place the bowl in the fridge for 30 mins to firm up so you can roll the dough into small bite size balls. Or do what we did, press the dough into cute little silicone moulds and place in the freezer for 30 mins to set.
  • Squeeze out the bites and keep in a tight jar in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • Or store them in the freezer and take a few out when you feel like a healthy snack.
