Decadent Flourless Chocolate Pudding with Rich Chocolate Sauce

Decedent Chocolate Pudding with Rich Chocolate SauceOn Friday night we were having a relaxed night at home & we just felt like a treat. Before my real food pledge, I would whip up a chocolate self saucing pudding that my mum taught me to make using standard processed baking ingredients. I wanted to re-create that tradition using real food ingredients, so I put my thinking cap on & threw some ingredients together to make these little puddings. Everyone loved them & told me that they tasted even better than the old pudding I used to make, so it is a winner! And what makes this dessert even more of a winner is that it is gluten, grain & sugar free.

This recipe is quite quick & easy. It will make 12 little puddings. You can freeze them for another time if that is too many at once, or it is perfect for a dinner party.

4 tablespoons of chia seeds
1 cup of water
1 cup almond meal
1 cup dates
