Chocolate Chickpea Protein Fudge

This chocolate chickpea protein fudge fudge is much more simple and easier to make than traditional fudge which generally requires at least 20 minutes of hard graft after which point you’re left with a sore arm and a kitchen full of washing up and sticky mess! This one just needs to be popped into a blender and set in the fridge and voila, it’s ready to eat.

This can also easily be made grain free by replacing the oats with extra almond flour or coconut flour and also lower in sugar by replacing the coconut sugar with stevia. However FYI, coconut sugar is shown to be a low GI (glyceamic index) food.

Ingredients for fudge:

Ingredients for fudge:

  1. Place chickpeas in a food processor and blend until creamy.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients (except the chocolate) to the food processor and blend with the chickpeas, scraping down the sides when required.
  3. Press into a tin lined with greaseproof paper and set in the fridge for an hour.
  4. Melt the chocolate and pour over the fudge then allow to cool in the fridge another hour.

Before the chocolate sets you can also sprinkle your chocolate chickpea protein fudge with nuts or other toppings. Enjoy!

I also made another version of chickpea fudge but this one is made with chickpea flour and requires a bit more hard work, but in my opinion it’s worth it! https://foodflaneur.com/2018/09/28/chickpea-fudge-vegan-gluten-free/.
