Sneaky Protein: Crunchy Chocolate Fudge Dip

Earlier this week I was thinking about how it’s been quite a long time since I’ve had chocolate fudge. I LOVE raw fudge made of nuts and dates but I didn’t have any of the ingredients on hand and it the chocolate clock was ticking. I decided instead to make an even more chocolatey twist on my Chocolate Hummus. Substituting black beans and tahini and adding cacao nibs, this protein-packed Crunchy Chocolate Fudge Dip was born!

This dip turned out so amazingly thick and chocolately (and good for you in a very sneaky way), I decided to make cookies in order to create cookie sandwiches like I did with the Chocolate Hummus recipe. I started pouring ingredients into a mixing bowl and after mixing a few items together I realized I had added GF Pancake Mix instead of GF All Purpose Flour. OOPS. So I switched gears and attempted to turn the cookies into biscuits- which you’ll see in the photos below. I’m actually pretty excited about how the biscuits tasted but they were just a tiny bit too crumbly so Im going to work on the recipe a bit before share it with all of you! In the mean time here’s a recipe for Gluten-Free Vegan Buttermilk Biscuits that looks and sounds amazing!

For a lighter bite, rice crackers are my favorite vehicle for this dip! Amazing combination of textures but not overly filling.Crunchy Chocolate Fudge Dip 1
