Sugar-Free Chocolate Oat Nibbles

When babysitting my niece and nephew it is difficult to not give into their requests for chocolate and sweets because I want to make their little faces happy. In a bid to find middle ground and satisfy their sweet tooth while staying in my sister's good books (she refuses to give them baked goods), I created sugar-free chocolate oat nibbles.



The recipe uses honey in place in sugar, and a little banana to up the fibre and add a natural sweetness too. My nephew in particular loved these, and didn't even notice I hadn't used real chocolate, but raw cacao nibs. He was none the wiser

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 3 servings

Ingredients
Tblsp cacao nibs
100g honey
50g butter
50g porridge oats
Half vanilla pod
1 banana
Tblsp oil (for greasing)

Method
Pour the cacao nibs into a food processor and blend to a fine powder.



Place the butter and cacao over a bain-marie and stir gently until completely smooth (10 minutes)




Gently mix until smooth.



Add half a vanilla pod.



Add the honey to the bowl of chocolate.



Add the oats to the bowl.



Break the banana into pieces and add to the bowl.



Combine to form a relatively rough, pliable texture. Roll into small one-bite balls.



Grease a sheet of baking tray paper, place the 'nibbles' on top with equal spacing, and place in the oven for 20 minutes at 180 degrees/gas mark 4.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.



If you have eager little mouths drooling at the scent of chocolate, the nibbles are edible within about 5 minutes of being out of the oven. When they're still warm like this, the nibbles are slightly gooey and reminiscent of brownies.



My nephew calls these 'funny brownies', and I guess that's what they are - a funny, mock-brownie if you will. Either way, they made my niece and nephew very happy, and my sister loved them too.

Keep the nibbles in an airtight tub and they'll keep for three days in a cupboard. They last longer when they're kept in the fridge (1 week), and are delicious when heated up in the microwave.
