Vegan chocolate orange tart

Vegan chocolate orange tart

If you liked Jaffa cakes, you’d love this. I promise you won’t taste the chickpeas. They give a great texture and slice like a dream. This no-bake, gluten-free tart is sweetened naturally with Medjool dates, and orange juice so contains no refined sugar.

The recipe is for a 5” tart. It’s pretty filling, so it’s perfect for sharing… or having in 2 halves 😉

Nutritional info

The super filling chickpeas and nutritious dates in this recipe are a great double act of vitamins, minerals and fibre. Chickpeas and almonds combined make a complete protein. Magical.
