Just 4 ingredients and no cooking time!
Your favourite chocolate (darker the better for me)
Prunes no stones
Whole almonds ( or any other nut and can add seeds too)
Ginger fresh or crystallised
I blend down the first 3 ingredient in equal portions in my blender , then add to taste grated fresh ginger or blended down crystallised ginger ( wash off the sugar) then stir it all together and then I roll little balls with one hand or if too messy flatten it out with a rolling pin and cut or shape it.
For an extra touch then you can roll them in sesame seeds and or melted chocolate. No baking required, just hide them away in the fridge and if you have good self control they last for a long time or share them with others. Change the ingredients around for a different taste or if you are not a fan of one of them.
A great way to make your chocolate go further and to decrease sugar intake whilst having something sweet and with more protein! Not for night time if you are light sleeper as ginger is a stimulate and dark chocolate too. Enjoy xx

Aromatic Spices I like to make my own herbal homemade tea- infusions. Mainly because I can have whatever flavour I want and one tablespoon of my blend can last a whole day in a thermos flask and all I do is top it up. They are better for the environment than the...
Homemade Quinoa Bread I am always tweaking recipes to suit my own tastes. Homemade bread is no exception. I'll make the basic dough recipe then add different ingredients to change the texture and flavour. For example for a sweet bread, I'll add maple syrup, raisins,...
