Vegan Angel Bites

 

Yields: About 40 individual 

1 Tablespoon bites; 

20 completed Angel Bites.

 

Ingredients:

15 oz. can Garbanzo (Chickpea) Beans

1/3 cup Splenda Sugar Blend or

2/3 cup Granulated Sugar

1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

Any flavor desired No Added Sugar Jelly, for filling






Directions: Pre heat oven to 350°F.

Step 1: Line two baking sheets with parchment paper (don’t spray with oil or use foil).

 

Step 2: Drain canned Garbanzo beans; reserving all the aqua faba. You should have about 3/4 cup of liquid.  Pour Aqua faba into a mixing bowl. Beat on high speed with a whisk attachment until stiff peaks form; as little as 5 min., as much as 15 minutes. Once the stiff peaks have been accomplished, add sugar 1 heaping Tbsp. at a time, and whisk until the mixture is glossy. Finally, add vanilla extract.  

 

Step 3: Spoon rounded Tablespoons of meringues onto prepared baking sheet. Bake in pre heated oven for 15 min., or until golden brown. Remove from baking sheet onto a wire rack to completely cool. 

 

Step 4: To assemble Angel Bites, place a small amount of jelly for filling on the bottom of one bite and top with the other, “sandwiching them together.” These little bites will keep for 1 - 2 days in an airtight container.
