A few days ago I got an email with some statistics about my blog and which recipes are my most popular.
There are 3 clear winners and let me tell you that you lot have amazing taste, because they are my favourites too, all time favourites to be honest, because if I had only a few pennies left I would use them to buy ingredients to make each one of these.
So my most popular recipes on my blog are:
I have a feeling that this healthy chocolate flapjack recipe will make it to the top 5 very shortly. I made a batch last night and there’s only 1 left!
The flapjack is chocolatey, has a bit of crunch, is moist and has only 2 tablespoons of un-refined sugar.
To keep it gluten free, use gluten free oats. It will please the whole family, hubby, kids, grandparents…….. and my dad loves them too, so bring it around one Sunday to your in-laws to foster that relationship.
How to make healthy chocolate flapjack:
- Start by whisking together melted coconut oil, maple syrup and mashed banana.
- Add oats, crushed pecans and cacao nibs and combine well.
- Next pour the mixture into your baking dish, press down firmly and top up with more pecans.
- Pop in the oven for 20 mins or until golden brown.
- Cool completely, then take out of the dish and cut into small bars.
An 8×8 inch square cake pan will make small 16 square flapjacks.
How to store healthy chocolate flapjack:
- To Store. Store the bars at room temperature for up to 1 week. You can also store them in the fridge, though I find they taste best at room temperature.
- To Freeze. Place bars in an airtight freezer-safe storage container and freeze for up to 3 months. I like to wrap mine individually, then remove them from the freezer when needed.
It’s great for adding to kids lunch boxes as a healthy treat, they are loaded with yummy ingredients, but just be aware that I have added pecans and some schools don’t allow nuts to be brought into school.
If you can’t get pecans simply swap for almonds, walnuts or pumpkin seeds.
