I love flapjacks, they’re great portable food that keep you full for long.
First combine the dry ingredients :
2 cups plain white flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (can be omitted if you don’t like the taste, but do try it!)
2 1/2 cups oats (old-fashioned or porridge, whatever you have on hand)
1/2 cup coconut sugar
in another bowl combine the wet ingredients :
284g made up of melted coconut oil + yoghurt (you can do half/half) – you can also replace the yoghurt with apple compote
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla extract (you can make your own by putting a few vanilla pods in a small bottle of Gordon’s gin or vodka, let it sit for a few weeks and voila!)
stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients then add 2 1/2 cups of chocolate chips/chunks (I go for dark chocolate but you can choose milk chocolate)
tip into a square or rectangle baking dish (I use silicone baking dishes but I have used a high-sided baking tray before) and bake for 20 minutes at 180C.
