Similar to our 4 ingredient hazelnut chocolate spread, this high-protein chocolate fruit dip will remind you of Nutella – without the refined sugar. The texture is creamy smooth, fluffy, and light. Best of all, it tastes like dessert but qualifies as a great snack option thanks to the balance of carbohydrates, healthy fats, and protein!
Inspired by Sweet Peas and Saffron, this recipe is one of our new favourites and can be adapted with any type of nut butter. For this version, we used almond butter – but hazelnut, pistachio, or macadamia would also be delicious. Your kiddos are going to love this recipe… let’s dig in!
Almond butter - our single ingredient almond butter is made with organic dry roasted almonds that are high in minerals including calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. Almonds are rich in healthy fats - in particular, ALA omega 3 fats - hello brain food! Almonds are also high in Vitamin E - which is a fat-soluble vitamin responsible for fighting free radicals and helping to repair damaged skin.
Chickpeas - are high in fibre, and contain 2.4 g of protein per tablespoon! Chickpeas have a neutral flavour, and give this high-protein chocolate fruit dip the perfect creamy texture. Chickpeas are a great source of manganese, iron, zinc, folate, and vitamin B6.
Cocoa powder - is rich in theobromine – an alkaloid that provides sustained energy, and may help to lift your mood while also increasing blood flow!
Honey - adds sweetness, without any refined sugar. Swap for equal parts maple syrup for a vegan option.
