Healthyish Dark Chocolate Raisin Flapjacks

I’m a bit of a sucker for a chocolate raisin. Say what you like about them looking like glorified rabbit droppings, they still taste lush. And you know me… anything that tastes lush is fair game in the flapjack department!

A simple three ingredient flapjack base, topped with dark chocolate covered raisins, I mean really… what’s not to like!?! And because I’ve used agave nectar instead of golden syrup there’s none of that refined sugar trash in them, which basically means they’re healthy!


What’s In My Dark Chocolate Raisin Flapjacks?

  • 250g Oats
  • 200g Raisins
  • 150g Dark Chocolate
  • 100g Butter
  • 100ml Agave Nectar

How Do I Make Dark Chocolate Raisin Flapjacks?

Preheat the oven to 160ºC.

Grease the holes of an individual flapjack tin with a small knob of butter.

Cut the butter into cubes and place in a saucepan. Stir until the butter has melted and then add the agave nectar.

Take the saucepan off of the hob and stir in the oats until everything is well combined.

Spoon the oat mix into the holes of the flapjack tin making sure to reach the edges. Compact the mixture down with the back of a dessert spoon or palette knife to help hold the mixture together when it cooks.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the tops are golden.

Leave to cool in the tin.

While the flapjacks are cooling, melt the dark chocolate by breaking into pieces and placing in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water. Make sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the boil otherwise it will spoil the chocolate.

Once the chocolate has completely melted, remove the bowl from the heat and stir in the raisins until they are covered in chocolate.

Spoon the chocolate raisins onto the top of the flapjacks and pop in the fridge for 20 minutes to help set the chocolate.
