Hello again! I’m back, and this time you only had to wait ten days in-between posts! I think that’s a new record. Seriously though, this “Nutella” is amazing. If you’re skeptical about the whole chickpea thing, don’t worry, I was too. But the end result was this delicious chocolatey spread that goes well with just about everything. There is an option to add some peanut butter, which I obviously did, but if you’re sick of all the peanut butter recipes on this site than feel free to take a break from it! Personally, I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of peanut butter. Before I give you the recipe, I want to commemorate shaneandsimple.com for coming up with it:)
- 1 15oz can of chickpeas, drained, rinsed, and patted dry
- 1/4 creamy natural peanut butter (optional)
- 1 small ripe banana
- 1/4 cocoa powder
- 1 tsp vanilla
- a pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp water (or more; add until you reach your desired consistency)
- Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until desired consistency is reached. Add more water if needed.
And……………. wow, that’s pretty much it. I think that’s the simplest recipe ever! Enjoy this spread on toast, with fruit, or anything else that needs chocolate on it! (Which is pretty much everything.) Thank for checking out this recipe! I’ll definitely be posting more in the summer – this darn invention called “studying for final exams” is killing my free time! Enjoy this spread in the meantime!
