healthy C H O C O L A T E spread !!

Chocolate glorious chocolate! My boys would eat chocolate all day everyday, if they could.... So how do I make it more healthy? I came across this recipe watching a food programme 'Eating Well' by Hemsley sisters. What really appealed to me was that it looked very simple to prepare and had lots of amazing ingredients, making this chocolate spread nutritional and healthy, a prefect combination. The verdict - it's super easy to make and absolutely delicious!!

Preparation time altogether 10 minutes

1 can of black beans
4 table spoons of cocoa powder
4 table spoons of honey - you can add more or less honey depending on how sweet you would like it to be
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
2 teaspoons of good quality vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt
100g of hazelnut butter

Mix all ingredients in a food processor, and if you prefer a more smooth consistency keep it going for a bit longer. Put in a jar and keep in the fridge.
Black beans are the hidden gem in this chocolate spread and they add lots of healthy benefits - rich in protein, fiber, omega 3, vitamin B1, B9 and anti-oxidants.
And who said chocolate is bad for you?
