It won’t take a genius to figure out that I’m a complete flapjack addict, one slice is simply never enough.
Whilst out food shopping, these tasty little ‘Recces Pieces’ caught my eye, of course being a complete peanut butter fiend I threw several packets in my basket and headed to the till. Whilst they are tasty, I’m not a huge fan of American Candy and I felt like these would transition into something a little more exciting. On the subject of American Candy, I mentioned a few posts back that I love watching American’s try English food on YouTube, it’s fascinating how different our tastes are across the globe. I tried to imagine a world without all the creature comforts I’ve come to love over my existence, the prospect of no Cadbury Twirls is pretty devastating.
So, like all good things I had to form a plan, but of course I needed to have a little power nap first, to build up the energy to create such delicious delights. Rested and raring to go, I headed to the kitchen and threw together some of my favorite ingredients into a mixing bowl, cocoa, oats, peanut butter and plenty of reeces pieces. The nice thing about this recipe is that it requires no baking, plus with a quick tweak, you can easily make these vegan-friendly too! I guess it’s the perfect balance between sweet, salty and nutty, that’s a good mix, right?
It’s been nice writing to you, but I’ve got chocolate and peanut butter flapjacks to eat and this is something I take very seriously, ciao!
