Nutella Flapjacks

Chocolate and hazelnuts are a match made in heaven, so bung them together in a flapjack and I am seriously like a pig in poop! This recipe contains plenty of the good stuff and none of the bad stuff making it perfect as an after school snack for the kids, a post run power up or a tasty treat at teatime.

I’ve made my own version of Nutella for this recipe, but you could of course use any shop bought chocolate spread (just be aware of the extra salt, sugar and fat content!).

What’s In It?

Nutella

  • 100g Hazelnuts
  • 50ml Oat Milk
  • 40ml Maple Syrup
  • 1 tbsp Cacao Powder

Flapjacks

  • 250g Porridge Oats
  • 100g Unsalted Butter
  • 100ml Honey
  • 50g Oatmeal
  • 1 tbsp Cacao Powder
  • 1 tbsp Nut Butter

How Do I Make It?

Nutella

Blitz the hazelnuts in a food processor until they turn into a fine powder. Add the remaining ingredients and blitz until it has all mixed together and made…Nutella!

Flapjacks

Melt the butter, honey and nut butter in a saucepan until well combined. Remove from the heat and stir in all of the remaining ingredients.

Now it’s time to layer up. Put two teaspoons of the flapjack mixture into a brownie tin and pat down until smooth and even. Now cover with 1 heaped teaspoon of your homemade Nutella, making sure to smooth out to the edges. Then cover with 2 more teaspoons of the flapjack mixture and again pat down until smooth, it should be level with the top of the tin. This recipe makes 8 square brownie sized flapjacks; you could also make this as a traybake, but it could get a bit messy when you cut so I would personally stick to individual ones.

Bake in a moderate oven for 20 minutes and then leave to cool in the tin.
