Healthy Chocolate Spread

Simple, healthy and yummy.  As there's no water in this recipe it will keep for a couple of weeks in a sealed glass jar in the fridge but I'm betting it wont last that long!

Use as a dip for fruit sticks such as apple, pear or nectarines or spread on breads & crackers.  Could also be used as a filling in mini-tarts.

  • 1 banana (chopped)
  • 1 tbl nut butter eg almond, cashew, hazelnut

  1. Mash or whizz up in mini food processor of coffee mill
  2. Add optional 1/2 tbl seed oil (hemp, flax etc) or water to help process along.  Additional superfoods may also be added (maca or suma work well with cacao).
