Flapjacks are chewy, nutty and 100% satisfying for your sweet tooth but normally they are made with lots of butter and brown sugar. Luckily, I've come up with a healthy version without compromising with the incredible taste! These flapjacks are perfect little treats that you can have without feeling guilty! The only bad thing about them is that you'll end up eating 10 squares after tasting just one bite (I'm talking from experience).
Here's the recipe:
1/2 can coconut milk
3 tbsp honey
3 tbsp natural sweetener (I used sugar free vanilla syrup)
75 g coconut flour
125 g peanuts (you don't need that much, I just looooooove peanuts)
100 g mixed nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts etc.)
50 g chopped almonds
250 g oats
3 tbsp peanut butter
100 g dark chocolate
Preheat the oven to 130 degrees Celsius or 266 degrees Fahrenheit. If you like it more toasted and crispy, bake it at 180 degrees celsius or 356 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix oats, nuts and coconut flour in a bowl and stir the coconut milk, honey and sweetener in.
Put the mixture in a baking dish lined with a baking sheet and press the mixture with your hands until it's firm. Put it into the oven for 45 minutes and chop the chocolate while it's baking.
Take it out of the oven and spread the peanut butter all over it. Sprinkle the chocolate all over too and and when it's melted, spread it with a knife.
Leave it in the fridge for at least four hours or over night until set.
Cut into squares and enjoy your amazing snacks!
The cutting went a litte wrong for me so I obviously had to eat all the deform once. Now you just have to be patient while the chocolate sets.
Bring the bars to school or work to satisfy or sweet cravings through the day!
