Vegan Mocha Chocolate Flapjacks

Flapjacks – so easy to make, but so rare to find in my house. Generally speaking, when I want something baked and chocolatey, I’ll make some kind of chocolate muffin or cupcake. But, I feel like I’ve done a lot of that lately and this time, I wanted something with the ease and convenience of a tray bake. Since my favourite coffee is transitioning to a slightly indulgent mocha, I decided to make vegan mocha chocolate flapjacks.

These vegan mocha chocolate flapjacks are kind of a lazy bake. They’d also be a really easy thing to bake with kids because there are just two steps that require an adult (melting things, and placing the mixture in the oven). The is rest is no more complicated than stirring and pressing into a tin! As much as I love making chocolate cupcakes, having to make up icing, fill a piping bag and carefully decorate at least 12 cupcakes… well let’s face it, sometimes it’s all just a bit too much hassle. Especially for something that takes about 2 bites to completely devour.

Any excuse for more chocolate

I ended up adding extra chocolate to my mocha chocolate flapjacks, by adding cacao nibs. These are optional and your own flapjacks won’t suffer for not adding them. I just wanted a bit of extra… oomf and dimension against the chocolate and coffee flavours. And.. I just wanted to chuck some in (if I’m being brutally honest).

However, after the fact, I gave it a bit of a research and was pleasantly reminded of all benefits of cacao nibs. Cacao nibs health benefits…

  • High in magnesium
  • A source of antioxidants
  • High in fibre
  • Flavanoid rich
  • High in potassium

know chia seeds are really healthy too – but they get written about all the time so I thought I’d spotlight the chocolate-related ‘superfood’ instead.
