I love flapjacks. Flapjacks are one of my favourite treats and lately, I have been craving them like mad: oaty, buttery and sweet, I wouldn’t trust anyone who didn’t like them. They are also easy to make and that makes me very, very happy.
I was going to leave these flapjacks plain: they are good as they are, but I decided to coat them in chocolate too, just for that extra cherry on top ya know 😉
- 2 Cups Rolled Oats
- 1/4 Cup Sliced Cherries
- 1/3 Cup Apple Sauce
- 1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
- 2 Tbsp Vegan Butter
- 2 Tbsp Coconut Syrup
- 2 Tbsp Raw Cane Sugar or Sweetener
- 2 Tbsp Ground Almonds
- 2 Tbsp Chopped Nuts (optional)
- 2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
- 50g Melted Dark Chocolate
- 45ml Almond Milk
Pre-heat oven to 175c (fan assisted)
Place the chia seeds in a cup with 3 tbsp of water and stir. Leave the chia seeds soak up the water for 10 minutes.
Add the oats, syrup and apple sauce to a bowl and combine thoroughly. Cut the vegan butter into smaller chunks and using the back of the spoon, mash it into the oats.
Stir in the chia seed egg, ground almonds, sweetener and sliced cherries and combine the ingredients well.
Now place the flapjack mix into a brownie tray or loaf tin and press the mixture firmly into the pan.
Pop the flapjacks into the oven and bake until they are brown – around 10minutes.
Remove the flapjacks and leave them to cool.
Melt the dark chocolate and stir in the milk
When the flapjacks are cool and hard, cut them into bars, or squares, dip the tops in the chocolate and place them in the fridge to set.
