Kids Lunchbox Club: Chocolatey Spread


Apparently lots of kids still take nutella sandwiches to school even when their school is nut free! 
But it's not the nuts in nutella that bothers me (and hey let's face it, the nut content is truly quite pitiful)..... It's the milk and sugar and fat.
So here's a much more healthful version, and one that can be taken to nut-free schools guilt free!



CHOCOLATEY SPREAD


       You'll need:
             1 cup dried pitted dates

             1 1/2 cups cooked black beans
             2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
             1 teaspoon vanilla essense



Soak the dried dates in boiling water for about 10-15 mins until softened. Drain the dates and combine them in a food processor with the other ingredients. Blend until smooth, or until desired consistency. 
Transfer to a air-tight container and store in the fridge for up to a week.
Spread & enjoy :-)
