No added sugar raw probiotic chocolate and peanut butter flan

Hi everyone,

As many of you know, I am a huge fan of kefir!

This is due to the abundance of variant probiotic strains it provides, as well as the ability of these strains to provide colony forming units which don’t merely pass through our gut, but rather latch on in order to work their magic.

In order to get maximum benefits from a few of the ingredients, including both the probiotics in the kefir, and the resistant starch in the green banana flour (which both can be sensitive to heat), I wanted to create a raw dessert.

To my surprise, this concoction actually came out well first go?!

You can modify the flavours to suit your preference (for example, you can switch the peanut butter for a different nut butter, or perhaps mix through some desiccated coconut and hemp seeds), but as a base, this totally works 🙂
