We Should Cocoa #69 – The May 2016 Challenge
I’m a bit of a flapjack devotee. Flapjacks were one of the first bakes I ever made by myself and as they were full of oats, they weren’t too frowned upon. Actually I’m a fan of pretty much anything with oats in. I was bought up with proper oatmeal porridge slow cooked overnight in the aga. So I’m a bit astonished to find that after 68 months of We Should Cocoa we’ve never had oats as the ingredient chosen to accompany chocolate.
Let this be remedied right away. This merry month of may is going to be all about OATS. Oats come in many forms: sprouted, whole, flour, oatmeal, so don’t feel limited to rolled oats alone. Chocolate in one of its various forms must be one of the main ingredients, but whether it’s flapjacks, a smoothie, granola, cake or something else is entirely up to you.
Just in case you need an oaty inspiration, you can see some of my oat recipes. I can’t be the only one who is keen on flapjacks as these raspberry and white chocolate flapjacks are one of my most popular posts.
