What if I tell you that you can now enjoy a chocolatey dessert guilt free?
This recipe contains cacao which in its raw pure form is rich in magnesium, iron and calcium, a great mood enhancer( now you know why that chocolate uplifts you).
This recipe also contains foxtail millet (also known as kauni in Uttarakhand or kangni in South ) a gluten free millet, rich in iron and calcium.
What makes it totally guilt free is the use of dates to sweeten it instead of refined sugar.
This recipe was made by a participant at the Healthy cooking competition at Nurture Retreat in November 2019.
