5 Ingredient Mini Mocha Polenta Cakes

These simple cakes are a great morning tea option with their hint of coffee and chocolate. Prepare at the start of the week then store in the fridge in an airtight container to enjoy for a healthy snack.

Polenta is such a versatile ingredient as it’s delicious in savoury or sweet meals. As it’s made from corn, it is a great gluten-free option for cooking.
