FullSizeRenderIngredients:

  • 1 tin (400g) Black beans
  • 20g Chia Seeds
  • 150g Sukrin almond flour
  • 45g Powdered Peanut Butter (HaleNaturals)
  • 32g (1 sachet) Vanilla Casein (optional)
  • 250ml Unsweetetened Almond milk
  • 20g Coconut oil
  • 200g Applesauce
  • 70g Date Syrup
  • 100g Sultanas

 

Method:

  1. Soak the chia seeds in 120ml of water for 30-40minutes
  2. Drain the black beans and rinse well with cold water
  3. Make the Applesauce*
  4. Add the black beans and all other ingredients to a food processor (EXCEPT the SULTANAS)
  5. Once a smooth consistency has been achieved stir in the sultanas
  6. Put the mixture into a baking tin, I use non-stick sheets in mine, but a silicone dish would also work
  7. Place in the oven for approximately 30-40minutes until firm
  8. Once removed from the oven leave in the dish for a further 30 minutes to cool (It continues to cook in the dish so don’t remove the mixture from the dish)
  9. Finally slice into portions and enjoy!
  10. These can be stored in an air tight container for approximately 5 days

*To make the Applesauce: Peel and core 6 apples. Chop the apple into large chunks and place in a saucepan. Add enough water to cover the bottom of the pan and heat until the apple has become soft. Blend the soft apples to make a lumpy apple sauce.

Tips:

  • I like to heat mine up and serve with a scoop of healthy OPPO ice cream or greek yoghurt
  • Or add some Nut butter on top
