Chocolate Flapjack Slices: Recipe

I recently adapted one of my own recipes for raw energy bites to create chocolate flapjack slices. I wanted to create a healthy raw snack that I could take with me to work on the go, enjoy as a little mid morning treat whilst chilling at home or even serve as a dessert. These homemade flapjack slices are bursting with nutrients and sources of energy, providing the perfect sweet treat to cub that sugar craving!

chocolate flapjack slices recipe


Preparation Time: 20 minutes     /     Setting Time:  2 hours     /     Makes 10 slices


Ingredients

Base

  • 1 cup (250g) rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp (40ml) Manuka honey
  • 1 tbsp (20g) desiccated coconut
  • 1 tbsp (20g) flaxseed
  • 2 tbsp (40ml) smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp (20g) chia seeds
  • pinch of salt

Topping

  • 4 squares of dark chocolate (ideally 85%)
  • 2 tbsp (40g) desiccated coconut
  • 1 tsp (20ml) coconut oil
  • handful of dried chopped cranberries

Method

  1. In a bowl mix the oats, coconut, flax seed, peanut butter, chia seeds and salt to taste until the ingredients form a gooey, yet relatively solid texture (note: you can add more or less of certain ingredients if necessary).
  2. Place the mixture in a baking tray and flatten to create your flapjack base.
  3. Meanwhile, melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil in a pan until they turn into a smooth liquid.
  4. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the flapjack base until completely covered.
  5. Cover the chocolate topping with desiccated coconut and dried cranberries.
  6. Place in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours to set and enjoy!

Notes

You can be quite flexible with this recipe as long as you keep the proportions correct. E.g. I used a strawberry and cacao flaxseed mix instead of plan flaxseed. You can use crunchy peanut butter instead of smooth, and a less intense dark chocolate (or even milk chocolate) if you want. Experiment with it!
