Happy Valentines Day for those of you who celebrate! We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day here in Switzerland officially, but the trend is coming up more and more.
Sandro and me are not the most romantic couple and aside from that, we’re on our way to Spain today to enjoy a week of sun and beach – I think that’s celebration enough!
But now on to important things – sweets. You may have already read about Davida’s Valentines Bake Off which I assume will be HUGE – and I am happy to be part of it!
I made some effort in the kitchen and managed to create a yummy dessert/snack that can also be served as a Valentine treat. The idea is clearly based on Davida’s Chickpea Cookie Dough Truffles – I just made some slight adaptions to make them almond free.
1 can chickpeas (cooked, drained)
2 tbsp maple syrup (optional – only if you like it really sweet)
3 tbsp powdered stevia
3 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp ground vanilla
2 baby bananas
3 tbsp chufa flour (or use coconut flour)
grated coconut and cacao powder for rolling
Puree the chickpeas.
Add bananas and spices/sweetener and blend. Mix under the flour – when it starts to get doughy, start to knead with your hands.
Add liquid if needed – not too much though, the dough should be quite dry.
Form BALLS and roll in grated coconut or cacao.
And now will you excuse me as I have to study the cocktail menu.
I will be posting a few times next week, so watch out! Have a wonderful weekend loves!!
