Delicious, healthy and quick to prepare, this fudge has a sweet, nutty flavour and is a fantastic snack.

It is made with tahini, honey, banana and set with chia seeds. This combination of ingredients make it a tasty and healthy alternative to a chocolate bar when the mid-afternoon munchies set in.

It is naturally refined sugar, nut, gluten and lactose free.

Health benefits
Bananas are a natural energy source and are cholesterol and fat free. They are full of potassium, essential for the maintenance of fluid in the body, blood pressure and a healthy heart. They also contain vitamins B and C, folate, magnesium and fibre.
Tahini is naturally high in protein and contains potassium, magnesium, zinc, iron and vitamins E and B. It is said to help combat anaemia and contributes to bone, nerve and metabolic health.
Honey is a natural sweetener and has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties.
Chia seeds are high in protein, omega-3 essential fatty acids and vitamins A, B, D and E. Originally from Mexico, the Aztecs were said to use chia to give them energy and endurance.
