3 tsp Stevia

1 Medium Egg

1 tsp Vanilla Essence

100g 85%+ Dark Chocolate, chopped into small chunks

  1. Preheat your oven to 170ºC/150ºC fan (340ºF/300ºF fan) and line or grease a baking tray.
  2. Place the butter beans in food processor and blend until smooth. You will need to stop and scrape down the sides a few times.

  4. Beat in the ground almonds and stevia. Once evenly combined, beat in the egg and vanilla essence.
  5. Stir in the chopped chocolate.

  7. Bake in the centre of the oven for 10-15 minutes, until the edges have started to brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before placing in the fridge to fully set.
