Chocolate Flapjack and Chocbite Giveaway!

My Brother and Sister in law came at the weekend, I made the Baked Portuguese Cod and a very easy cake/flapjack. Its so simple and very tasty and I added a little slice of strawberry to the top. Oh and a flapjack is an oatmeal bar in the UK, just in case you were wondering.

  • 5 oz self raising flour
  • 8 oz butter or margarine
  • 5 oz sugar
  • 3 oz shredded coconut
  • 3 oz Oatmeal
  • one tablespoon of cocoa
  • melted chocolate

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. melt the butter/margarine over a low heat
  3. stir in the sugar, coconut, oatmeal and cocoa
  4. turn into the tin and level with a knife and bake for 30 minutes
  5. when almost cold cut into squares
  6. then cover with chocolate
And now......

  23. flapjack look terrific..and a cool giveaway, Rebecca..

  24. My bar is CHOCMilk w/ toffee bits, cayenne pepper, salt, and cashews - I call it Cayenne Crunch. Spicy, salty, sweet, creamy, crunchy-so many tastes and textures are going to make this a great bar! And I tweeted!

  25. The flapjack looks delicious and I love the addition of the strawberries on top. I love the pic of your little one walking the pup. How sweet!

  26. I love the flajacks with the strawberry on top.

    I would like to try the Mexican bar with the pepper and mango, sounds spicy and delicious which is one of my favorite combinations.

    A wonderful giveaway!

  27. The chocolate flapjacks sound so yummy! going to check out those bars!

  28. I called mine Chocolate Explosion: It has pop rocks, key lime flakes, and black and white sesame seeds on a dark chocolate base. Weird but intriguing :) The name says explosion because of the pop rocks, which I guess are self-explanatory.

    Awesome giveaway!

  29. The flapjack looks awesome.

    So for this giveaway I went to the site and came up with a dark choc bar with pomegranate bits and chick peas and I will name this bar pom-pea. I am going to tweet now too.

  35. Crazy! Here in the US, flapjacks actually refer to pancakes (which is why I was very confused by your picture). Those look great though!

  36. flapjacks are granola bars - then what are granola bars? Milk chocolate with toffee sounds good to me and Jasmine looks cuter than cute.

  37. You would think we were coming upon Valentines day with all the fabulous chocolate recipes I have seen today. This sounds delicious!

  38. I need to make these flapjacks. I have not had it but would love to try it.

  39. Strawberries adn chocolate is a great combination that just can't go wrong. YUM!

  40. So tHAT is a flapjack! Cool! UK stuff always sounds so much cooler. Hee hee.

    Mine is a milk chocolate bar, with black sesame seeds and salted pistachios! yUM!

  41. Silly me...I thought you were going to post a pancake recipe?? I do like these bars, they look very yumy with the berry on top.

  54. Mmmmm...flapjacks and chocolate. I'm glad it's afternoon here because this would have put me right over the edge if I hadn't had breakfast already.

    Okay, I played around with (cute site) and came up with CHOCdark w/ dried blueberries, salty peanuts, cashews, pecans and pistachios. The name is just too obvious - GONE CHOCONUTS! (Does this give away where I am right now?)
