Vegan Almond flapjack bites

I sat down today and started brainstorming some new recipe ideas to share with all my lovely followers. I really want to nail the perfect ‘cheesecake bites‘ recipe but I haven’t managed to get it quite right yet. So, being in the mind frame of little ‘bitesize’ treats, I decided to develop a flapjack recipe, with an almond layer on top… Dreamy right? I absolutely love almonds; whether they are raw or included in a recipe- I just can’t get enough! So I worked off a few recipes that I had developed before, to give you these dreamy (if I do say so myself), vegan almond flapjack bites. Made with healthy and plant based ingredients only!

Ingredients (makes 6)

For the base:

  • 3/4 of a cup of oats
  • 2 teaspoons of cashew butter (can also use almond butter, but cashew is smoother)
  • 2 tablespoons of agave
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil (melted)

For the almond topping:

  • 3/4 of a cup of ground almonds
  • 2 tablespoons of almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil (melted)

(Also fresh strawberries to decorate with)

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius and line a cupcake tin with 6 silicon cases.
  • In a bowl, mix together the agave and coconut oil, then mix in with the oats until combined.
  • Then add in the cashew butter, and mix until all the ingredients is mixed together well.
  • Evenly distribute the oat mixture between the 6 prepared cupcake cases. You can use your hands to push the oats into the moulds. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Note that these will still look soft when they come out of the oven- they will harden as they cool. To speed up the cooling process, you can place these in the fridge.
  • Whilst the flapjack bases are cooling, you can now work on the topping.
  • In a bowl, combine the ground almonds with the almond milk and melted coconut oil. You should achieve a paste-like consistency.
  • Once the flapjacks are completely cool, spread evenly across the 6 bases, your almond mixture.
  • Place in the fridge (or freezer) for a couple of hours until set. You should enjoy these chilled and keep refrigerated.
  • To add some fruity freshness- top with strawberries and enjoy!
