Tiger Nut & Goji Berry Clean Caramel Fudge Cups

As a Yumbles Community Champion, I was delighted to be invited to try out some goodies from The Tiger Nut Company. What on earth ARE tiger nuts?! Rather ironically, they are not actually nuts; they are a starchy vegetable and can be eaten raw, cooked, soaked, used as a flour or to thicken things like smoothies and juices - so versatile!

Not only do they taste absolutely incredible - quite sweet, a bit like cashews - tiger nuts boast many health qualities, which includes being:

  • Gluten-free
  • Dairy-free
  • Suitable for most food intolerances and allergies
  • Paleo and vegan friendly
  • Insanely high in Vitamin E (one 15g serving contains as much of the vitamin as six avocados!), an important anti-aging antioxidant

With the Premium Peeled Tiger Nuts from the range, I decided to incorporate them into these delicious, not-so-naughty clean fudge bites, packed with the crunchy tiger nuts plus goji berries, which work wonderfully well together. Topped with a raw chocolate, these would make an ideal Easter treat or simply if you’re craving chocolate (a healthier option!).

TIGER NUT & GOJI BERRY CARAMEL FUDGE CUPS

Ingredients:

For the fudge -

  • ½ cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons date nectar (I used Beloved)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted½ teaspoon vanilla or salted caramel extractPinch of salt
  • Large handful of The Tiger Nut Company tiger nuts
  • Large handful of goji berries

For the raw chocolate topping -

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar or coconut syrup
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder (I used Kaizen Living)

Get making!

  1. First make the fudge layer: Stir the tahini, date nectar, melted coconut oil, extract and pinch of salt together so you have a smooth, thick mixture.
  2. Stir in the tiger nuts and goji berries so they are coated in the fudge sauce.Pour into 6 small silicone cupcake cases and place in the freezer for at least 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile make the raw chocolate - simply melt the coconut oil and chosen syrup, remove from the heat and whisk in the cacao powder so you have a glossy mixture.
  4. Pour this over the frozen fudge cups - you only need a little to cover, then return to the freezer for at least another hour.
  5. When you’re ready to eat, simply pop out of the freezer 5 minutes beforehand and enjoy!
