Sweet, gooey and crispy flapjacks.
Flapjacks is one of my favorite snacks when life doesn’t need to be that healthy all the time. This recipe is full of sweet goodness, but you can easily omit the sugar ingredients and add some more healthy ones instead; coconut oil, dates, and peanut butter instead of plant butter etc.
This recipe reminds me a little bit of making granola because of the mixing in the beginning smells like that. Perfect with a cup of coffee, cacao or a midday smoothie.
I used dairy-free dark chocolate for this recipe, but you can use any kind of chocolate you prefer. Just remember to add popped quinoa or other good topping when the chocolate is still warm and soft.
I hope you will try this flapjack recipe – and as always please let me know if you have any questions making it.
