Is there ever a wrong time for chocolate? (FYI, there is only one correct answer here...NO!)
There was a time when I would have eaten chocolate cake for breakfast and called it the best day ever, but since I am trying to be healthier these days, the chocolate cake is out. That doesn't mean that I still don't want chocolate for breakfast. With this recipe, I can have my chocolate and eat it too.
The nice thing about this recipe (besides the chocolate) is that it is made of basic ingredients like dates for sweetness, oats, chickpeas and yogurt.
If you're not familiar with something called aquafaba, then you are missing out. Aquafaba is the liquid that is in a can of beans, or in this case chickpeas. Most of the time, it gets tossed down the drain and the chickpeas get rinsed, when in fact, it is totally edible and contains protein. It generally acts like an egg, so in this recipe, you don't need to rinse the chickpeas and the liquid is going to moisten and bind the rest of the ingredients. Save the extra by freezing it in ice cube trays to use in future recipes.
You will need a blender or processor to make this recipe since the ingredients all need to be blended to a smooth and creamy consistency.
