Okay, so I’ve absolutely loved making (and eating) the gorgeous cakes and desserts I’ve featured on the blog lately, but it’s time to get a little healthier again! I am currently on a detox and motivated to make refined sugar free, low fat, gluten free food again.
However, sometimes I wonder if my blog is confusing for readers: one minute I am heaping on the caramel and chocolate, next I making these little bites of goodness. But the way I see it (and I am sure it is the same with many other families) my recipes do centre around wholesome, easy to prepare dishes, but I also make treats every now and again, too.
I have adapted this recipe from a Swedish book called “Friendly Food”. It actually refers to them as “chocolate caramel”, and although I wouldn’t go as far as to call them caramel, they are good!
Made with chia seeds, hazelnuts, dates, only two tablespoons of honey (the original calls for agave syrup but I didn’t have any) and one and a half tablespoons of coconut oil, these bites not only taste superb but are good for you!
I made very few changes to the original recipe, other than the above mentioned, and halving the ingredients to make less.
