This won’t spike your blood sugar and it will fill you up – however, I make no claims that it’s especially low calorie, although the carb count is deliberately kept low. It’s also relatively high in protein and fibre, so the GI/GL load is low. It’s packed with goodness and is something you could eat as a meal in itself. It’d taste rubbish with a salad though.
Break 100g 85% dark chocolate into pieces and place into a large mixing bowl. Microwave in 30 second bursts on full power, gently stirring between bursts, until the chocolate is melted – this took 2 minutes 30 seconds in my microwave. Add to this 2 tbsp peanut butter powder (such as Tru-n). Stir to combine.
Break 100g pecans into pieces and stir into the mixture, along with 100g pumpkin seeds, 100g dessicated coconut, 1 tsp sweetener (I use Whole Earth Sweet Granules with Stevia) and up to 1/3 cup redbush tea. Stir until fully combined.
Eat warm as a “pudding” on its own or with cream or slightly thawed frozen banana; or store in a tub for later. I don’t know if this would have an expiry date. Mine has never lasted long enough to find out.
This can be spread out into a baking tray, portioned and frozen to make a more portable treat.
