Inspired by my imminent holiday to Sicily, I’ve gone all Italian with this week’s #FlapjackFriday recipe and transformed one of my fave puddings of all time into its bitesize flapjack form. These tiny Tiramisu flapjacks are the ideal thing for when you need a chocolate coffee hit first thing in the morning, or they make a great little nibble with your after dinner coffee.
When I made them, I substituted the coffee and cacao powder with some Beanies Double Chocolate flavour instant coffee that I had left over, but it’s entirely up to you which you decide to use. As long as you follow the same measurements then it’ll work out fine. The flapjack base contains no dairy products making it suitable for vegans and you can of course replace the crème fraîche with a vegan alternative.
Strong, bitter, sweet, chewy and smooth these flapjack bites are everything you could want from a healthy, yet decadent snack…truly delizioso!
What’s In It?
- 450g Porridge Oats
- 100ml Coconut Oil
- 100ml Maple Syrup
- 150ml Crème Fraîche
- 15g Dark Chocolate
- 1 1/2 tbsp Instant Coffee
- 1/2 tbsp Cacao Powder
How Do I Make It?
Make up an espresso cups worth of coffee by mixing the coffee with boiling water. Put to one side to cool.
Melt the coconut oil with the maple syrup in a saucepan over a low heat. Once melted, remove from the hob and stir in the oats.
Pour in half of the coffee and cacao powder (if you are using). Mix until everything has combined together.
Spoon the mixture into the cups of a mini muffin tin and bake in a moderate oven for 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin before removing.
Whilst these are cooling, pour the remaining coffee into a bowl with the crème fraîche and stir together.
When the flapjacks are cool, spoon or pipe a small amount of the coffee crème fraîche onto the top of each and finish with a grating of dark chocolate.
Remember to keep these refrigerated and they’ll last you a good couple of days…well that’s the theory anyway 😉
TOP TIP – Take your pudding goals next level…pop them in the freezer and try eating them frozen!
