No bake, rich, dark chocolate torte made with natural ingredients and can be refined sugar, gluten & dairy free!
Such an easy dessert with nutrition, fiber and rich chocolate goodness, plus you can make this a head of time and bring to room temp before serving. It is also a great option for anyone with allergies as it is easy to make gluten or dairy free and you can decorate this however you like and tailor the flavour of the choc however you choose very easily so it’s quite versatile too.
Sometimes you just want a snack to tide you over in between meals or maybe just something small with a bit of fruit for those of you who don’t have a huge appetite at breakfast but want to get more goodness into your day. Then these are a great way to do that, plus, no added sugar!
I used a plant protein here to balance out the carbs but it also makes a good post exercise snack until you can get home/to work to make a proper breakfast. These cookies are also pretty flexible in terms of adding different ingredients to make them taste they way you want. I like coconut and berries as I used a white choc coconut flavour protein but you can do whatever you like such as spices e,g cinnamon/ginger or some chopped dark chocolate!
Chocolate flavored pumpkin bread, great with some nut butter and filled with goodness from the pumpkin and banana.
I used wholemeal flour for more fiber and the antioxidants in the cacao, the vitamin E in almonds and plant based vitamin A from the pumpkin make this one good for the skin too, woo!
Free from pumpkin bread
You can make this sugar free by swapping the coconut sugar with a granular alternative plus by using a gluten free flour this is also suitable for GF and vegan diets.
I like to lightly heat or toast the slices and serve them with some nut butter or you can use a spread of choice and add some more if desired to really amp up the nutrition.
So this recipe is exactly what it says on the tin. Protein powder (plant version) mixed with crumbled up cookie/biscuit and shaped in a cupcake tin then topped with chocolate.
You can adapt this with whatever you like, some suggestions I got on my insta stories were raisins or popping a berry in the middle or on top etc.
Oaty, coconut dark choc chip bars or blondies, whichever way you want to think of them, they’re lovely and go perfectly with a nice cup of tea. They’re also free from lots of allergens so suitable for many diets and refined sugar free.
Bonus? These are so easy to make, just 1 bowl needed and with ingredients you can easily now find in all supermarkets even the coconut sugar which I’ve spotted in Lidl!
