Oats and Chocolate Hobnobs

These delicious treats are vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free and guilt free. I bet you cannot stop at one. This is a great option for kids snack, post meal dessert cravings and mid day snacking.

My love for dark chocolate makes me experiment and research on new recipes more frequently than I do with any other ingredient. I have used maple syrup in this recipe, but feel free to replace it with agave or honey. 

For a nut-free option, replace the ground almonds with the same amount of oat flour.

Using a good quality couverture is really important for this recipe or any other recipe that requires chocolate in it. I have used Van Houten dark chocolate couverture for this. use whichever brand is locally available to you. Tempering the chocolate well is crucial for the sheen and gloss finish on the chocolate. I have explained how to temper your chocolate in the recipe card below.
