Per um per per um. That’s a drum roll. Kind of.
These are insane. They are indecently delicious, but unapologetically so. They don’t have to say sorry, because they aren’t even bad for you. That’s how good they are! If it were possible (or wise) to marry a form of food, I think these may just be my one true love.
I have to admit I have been whipping these up on a daily basis for the last couple of weeks and I am yet to tire of them. I mean, how could I?
They are ludicrously quick to make, involve no cooking at all and they don’t have any of the bad stuff. Just a few simple ingredients mixed together and chilled. The result being a perfectly chewy, completely delicious flap jack without any of the faff. I love them just as they are at this stage and always have some in my handbag. But if you want to take them to a new level of yum, then cover them in a decadent healthy chocolate topping. Seriously. If that’s not quite enough excitement for you, drizzle them with some peanut butter. Wham. Bham. Seriously, life.
- 1 cup oats
- ½ cup peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
- pinch salt
- 30g raisins
- 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
- ¼ cup melted coconut oil
- 1 ½ tablespoons of maple syrup
- ¼ cup coconut cream
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- For the flapjacks, simply mix all the ingredients together. Then tip into a lined tin and smoosh it down. I use a tin that is about 8 inches x 5 inches, but the dimensions do not have to be specific.
- Pop into the fridge to firm up whilst you make the chocolate topping.
- Mix the ingredients for the healthy chocolate ganache together and then spoon on top of the flapjacks.
- Return to the fridge to chill for half an hour or so until the chocolate has set.
- Then, cut in chunks, and drizzle with the peanut butter. (I just melt mine in the microwave for a few seconds until it goes deliciously runny)
