Crumbly, gooey little treats.
Recently I've been on the search for some 'healthy' snacks to take to the office to battle that mid-afternoon dip in sugar levels. I have so many ideas saved on my Pinterest board but had never got round to making any. But when the lovely guys at Holland & Barrett challenged me to make a sugarless bake, I had just the idea. Gooey, chewy healthy flapjacks. Perfect for an office snack and a treat that can scrimp on sugar, not taste.
Preheat Oven: 180 degrees
In a bowl mix the oats and desiccated coconut together. Squeeze the coconut syrup and almond butter into the mix. Smush (technical term) the banana leaving a few chunks whole and pour the almond milk into the oats then sprinkle on the cacao nibs. Combine until the mix begins to stick together. If you find it's too crumbly, add a little more almond milk. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes until the edges have turned golden.
*The lovely guys at Holland & Barrett kindly sent me these ingredients for free
Serve with another sprinkle of desiccated coconut and pumpkin seeds. I made this recipe gluten free and vegan friendly but feel free to use cow's milk or normal butter if you prefer!
