Chocolate… with chickpeas? Yes, believe it or not but it’s absolutely delicious and such a fabulous iron, protein and fiber-filled alternative to the classic store-bought chocolate spread. Both kids and adults will love it on some toast as a little sweet snack and it keeps in the fridge for several days.

Plus it’s so easy, just put all the ingredients in a blender and you are done!!! You will never go back to buying chocolate spread again from the store, and you will feel guilt-free too when eating this one instead. Win-win in my books.

    Looks a lot like Nutella, probably better for you also.

      Yes it's a healthier Nutella substitute, with added nutrients like protein and iron. It's less nutty though. Hope you enjoy it.
