Chocolate flapjack – Recipe

Lot’s of snow outside so a perfect day for making flapjacks! I used the basic flapjack recipe from one of my favourite cookbooks : How to feed your whole family a healthy balanced diet … by Gill Holcombe. With some minor adjustments of my own.



6 tablespoons of syrup

150 grams of butter

12 heaped tablespoons of porridge oats ( I used 15 as it looked too wet still)

5 chunks of chocolate ( my addition as I love chocolate!!)


Melt syrup and butter together on low heat and then take of the heat to stir in the oats ( Lot’s of stirring) Press mixture into buttered or lined baking pan and bake in a preheated oven on 160 degrees for approximately 20 minutes.


Tuck in!

Take pan out of oven and grate chocolate on top of the hot flapjack. Cut halfway through the flapjack and leave to cool further for another 10-15 minutes. Cut out the flapjacks and eat once cooled down completely ( or when you can eat it without burning your mouth …)

Chocolate Goo – Recipe

I am going to start this recipe with an apology! I was going to include a nice picture of the finished article to tempt you all into making this easy and tasty dessert. Alas it turned out it was too tasty and it was all gone before I remembered to take a picture ….

Too good to wait... Ingredients:

4 tablespoons of cornflour

4 tablespoons of sugar

4 tablespoons of cacao power

1/2 liter of milk






Aventura Method:

Mix all the dry ingredients together and slowly add the milk whilst mixing to make sure there are no lumps. Pour mix into a pan and gentle heat whilst stirring until it thickens nicely ( approximately 5 minutes). Pour the mix into separate bowls or cups. You could be adventurous here and put some chopped banana in the bottom of each cup. Wait for them to cool down and top with whipped cream or just tuck in!!

mmmm more please!!
