Is there anything better than peanut butter and chocolate? Try this healthy fondant recipe for the perfect sweet treat

4 tbsp almond meal
2 tbsp cacao powder, or cocoa powder
1 egg
3 tbsp milk of choice
½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp peanut butter

How to
Preheat oven to 160°C or 320°F.
Place all of the ingredients, except for the peanut butter, in a bowl and use a fork or whisk to combine until there are no clumps and mixture is light and bubbly.

Lightly grease two, small ovenproof bowls. Spoon mixture equally into each bowl.

Spoon 1 tbsp of peanut butter into the middle of each bowl.

Place in oven and cook for 15 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Serve immediately, with fresh berries and a little extra peanut butter.

When you’re mixing together the ingredients, try and whisk it for at least 5 minutes to incorporate the most air – this way your fondant will be light and fluffy!
