Chocolate Flapjacks


I came up with these as an attempt to devise a snack to keep me away from chocolate Easter eggs. I think they worked out quite well. I added the olive oil because the cacao powder does tend to try out the mixture. The Lacuna powder is a natural sweetener and gives a nice creamy texture but it is optional,

2 bananas
150g golden syrup
3tbsps cacao powder
3 tbsps olive oil
1 tbsp Lacuna powder (optional)
200g porridge oats

  1. Peel and  mash the bananas until fully smooth.
  2. Add the golden syrup, olive oil, cacao powder and lacuna powder, then stir until fully combined.
  3. Add the oats and then stir thoroughly until they are fully coated with the mixture.
  4. Spoon the mixture into a greased baking tray or dish. Anything that has raised sides will be ok. Press down the mixture so that it is level with no gaps.
  5. Cook in a preheated oven at 175 degrees for approximately 20 minutes.
  6. Allow to cook completely and then cut into squares.


 The recipe makes 24 chocolate flapjacks which are only 80 calories each. This makes them the perfect healthy snack when you really do need something sweet and chocolatey.

I'm definitely going to make another batch so we have some to last over the Easter weekend. Speak to you soon.
