Gooey chocolate flapjack bites

We’ve all been watching too much Bake Off in the office and it’s got us craving sweets and treats, so we’ve been playing around with some new recipes and these have been a huge hit! The recent granola launch has also meant that we’ve had tons of granola in the office, so we used some of it in this recipe, which is delicious – although I’m sure you could just use simple oats instead. The base of this is so gooey. It’s made of just five ingredients:ย granola, coconut, peanut butter, rice syrup and a pinch of salt. It’s gooey and coconuty and tastes so good sandwiched under the creamy chocolate layer with medjool dates, cacao powder, coconut oil, coconut milk and a squeeze of date syrup. If you’ve got the baking bug too we could’t recommend these more!
