Cocoa & Vanilla flapjacks

Vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, wheat-free

This recipe was inspired by the 'Graze' cocoa vanilla flapjacks.
Graze is a monthly food subscription box!
Check out 'Graze' here-

 The flapjack is so yummy, i took it upon myself to replicate the flavour and i think i have done pretty well! They taste almost identical, so says my sister!

This flapjack contains natural sugars and chia seeds for added protein.
I also added a drizzle of homemade cacao chocolate for a richer chocolate taste!

This recipe is quick, simple & easy. They are perfect for snacking on during the day or enjoying as a dessert paired with fresh berries!

  1. I made these today (minus the drizzling on the top, as I didn't have any cacao) and the texture is wonderful! Mine didn't come out quite sweet enough, so I suspect the drizzle would've made a lot of difference. Thank you for such a great recipe :)

  2. Made these today and they smell and taste fantastic! Although I added an extra scoop of vegan vanilla protein powder which made them a bit too dry so if anyone else does this - make sure you up the marg & maple syrup!!

  3. They are fab! Look and taste brilliant. Have loads of chocolate left so will need to make more of them. Thanks a brilliant recipe.
