While browsing on the internet i came across a lovely pic of what looked like a granola bar/flapjack type of cookie with a layer of chocolate. I was fascinated and carried on to read the recipe. Aaa…simple enough i thought ! I can easily make this and share it with all of my followers. It was xmas time and i decided to make some for my kids. Oats are healthy and a source of iron and why not eat something healthy and sweet ? So….. this is what it turned out like.. A DISASTER!!! The taste was awesome, very delicious and the kids loved it but i was inconsolable…I kept on taking a bite and saying “what went wrong”??? So… i dont know if it was just a cooking disaster or i did something wrong…but i am being brave enough to post the recipe and ask you all if you make it please do share your pic 🙂
2 cups of oats
2 cups of whole wheat flour (aata)
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1 cup of sugar
200 grams of butter, melted
FOR THE CHOCOLATE:
100 grams of milk chocolate bar, melted in the microwave
5-6 tablespoons of nutella
Preheat the oven to 175. Mix the oats with the wheat flour and the salt, sugar, and vanilla essence. Add the melted butter to it and bring it all together to form a ball. Divide into two. Melt the milk chocolate bar and then add the nutella while still hot.
Take a non stick small baking tray and grease it with a bit of butter or oil. Take half of the dough and pat it onto the baking tray pressing it down firmly and evenly. Spread the chocolate mixture on the top with a knife or a spatula. Top with the rest of the dough, cover the chocolate part and press and pat gently this time. Put into the oven to bake for about 20 minutes or till its turned slightly browned.
Remove while hot with a knife cut into squares without removing it from the tray. Once cooled it will harden. Then remove carefully and serve!!
Very delicious…but…as i said… i dont know what went wrong with mine..
