Peanut-butter Chocolate chip Flapjacks
Today I made Peanut butter and chocolate chip flapjacks, I make flapjacks quite often but today I decided to change the recipe by adding some peanut butter and dark chocolate chunks! They look delicious fresh from the oven I can't wait to try them! They're really easy to make and really quick too. Here's the recipe:
- 250g Rolled oats
- 75g Light brown sugar
- 3 tbsp Golden Syrup
- 150g Butter
- 3 Heaped tbsp of Peanut butter
- Dark chocolate chips (as many or as little as you like)
- 100g Milk chocolate
Pre-heat your oven to 160c (for a fan oven).
In a glass bowl heat the butter, sugar, and golden syrup over a pan of simmering water. Once all the ingredients are fully melted, take the bowl off the heat and set aside.
Beat the peanut butter in a small bowl until smooth, set aside.
Put the oats in a large bowl and add the peanut butter, melted sugar mix, and chocolate chips, then mix well. Pack into a fairly deep baking tray and cook in the pre-heated oven for 30 mins (check at 25 mins) the flapjack will still be quite squishy when you take it out, but it will firm up a little as it cools.

Triple Choc and Hazelnut Brownies
So here it is, Chocolate Brownies!
285g Dark Chocolate (The recipe says at least 70% coco solids but I've never used that stronger chocolate! Mine is normally about 54%)
115g Unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
450g Soft light brown sugar
6 Large eggs
1 Tablespoon of good quality vanilla extract
160g Plain flour
1 Tablespoon of baking powder
Dark,milk,white chocolate, and hazelnut chunks (enough to sprinkle over your tray before baking)
Rectangular brownie tin (aprox 12"x 8" and 1" deep)
Preheat the oven to 150c/gas mark 2. Grease and line your baking tin and set aside for later.
Next melt your dark chocolate and butter in a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water. Leave to cool.
|Ready for the oven|
Leave to cool in the tin, then when the brownie is semi-cool slice with a sharp knife in the tray. Use a spatula to remove your slices from the tray! Enjoy! xxx
Ps. They taste great served with vanilla ice cream! xxx
