It's January, which means many of us are giving Veganuary a go. We think coming up with a vegan version of our favourite breakfast and dinner recipes is relatively easy, but when it comes to snacks, that's our downfall. It's too easy to want to rip into a packet of sweets or chow down on some chocolate that's left over from Christmas.
So, to make everyone's Veganuary that bit easier, we've found a delicious chocolate treat recipe that is super tasty and really easy to make. These make great snacks on the go or are perfect as a dessert after your vegan dinner. Check out the recipe below and give them a try!
50ml maple syrup
150g gluten-free cornflakes
150g vegan almond butter
200ml melted vegan dark chocolate
Pour the cornflakes into a blender and blend until totally ground up. Pour into a bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine honey and almond butter. If the almond butter isn’t warmed a little, it may not mix, so ensure it’s runny before combining.
Pour in your ground cornflakes to the almond and honey mix and stir to combine. Shape into small balls, adding each one onto baking paper on a baking tray.
Freeze for 20 minutes.
In the meantime, heat water in a saucepan and place a Pyrex bowl over the heat. Break up your dark chocolate and melt it in the Pyrex bowl, stirring often. Stir in your pinch of sea salt once melted.
Next, dip your frozen cereal balls into the melted chocolate and place them back on the baking paper and back in the fridge for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
