3 ripe bananas
250g oats
70g oat flour (oats blended in blender)
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
50g smooth peanut butter
70g dark chocolate chips
1 tablespoon of maple syrup


Preheat oven to 180°C fan.

Peel and mash the bananas in a large baking bowl with a fork, then add in the oats, oat flour, baking powder, peanut butter, syrup and 50g of chocolate chips. Stir well to combine.

Scoop the mixture into a small lined baking tray and spread out evenly. Sprinkle the remaining 20g of dark chocolate chips across the top of the mixture.

Bake in oven for 25 minutes. Once golden brown, remove from the oven and allow to cool outside of the baking tray for 10 minutes before slicing into 8 bar shapes. This helps the flapjacks firm up a little and helps with slicing into bars.
