Gigi recently turned 3 years old. I’m always on the lookout for new, healthy recipes for the cubs. This one from Hemsley & Hemsley totally delivers and they’re delicious too! No gluten or refined sugar. And I used coconut oil in place of butter to make them dairy free. I also used a pinch of salt in place of Tamari. Trust me – no one even knows they are eating beets. They’re just moist, chocolatey and approved by my fussy children (and that’s saying a lot.) I made a double batch and froze the extras. Then I can just pull them out for a treat, or if we are going to a party and need to take something safe for the kids to eat.
Here is the recipe for ChocBeet Fudge Cakes. Be sure to check out the rest of the Hemsley & Hemsley website – their recipes are gorgeous, healthy and yummy! Above is a picture of how ours turned out. They are perfect on their own but we made them even more special by adding whipped cream/coconut cream and raspberries… (apparently we love the combination of chocolate, raspberries and cream at our house.) Any berries would be great.
Plates were licked clean, Gigi even ate the crumbs that had dropped on her dress, and Panda asked for more! Success! Happy Birthday sweet baby girl. xo
