This might indeed be the easiest and tastiest fudge I've ever made, and it's not your typical fudge. This delicious confection is made with toasted chickpea flour with a dash of cardamon and some lightly toasted sesame seeds. These days most everything I make is dairy-free, but this time around I went with butter. If you want to make it vegan, use coconut oil instead. I'm sure it would be just as good.
Slightly crumbly yet creamy at the same time, the taste and texture of this fudge reminds me of both halva and buttery shortbread — a none-too-sweet shortbread halva if you wish. All you need is a few small bites for a boost of protein. Once again, I've made a treat that can be enjoyed for breakfast without guilt, and this would make a fantastic Christmas treat for those looking to cut down on the seasonal decadence. These did not last long. But if you have any leftover, store them in the refrigerator in a covered container.
