Have you ever craved something so sweet so badly but had no real dessert or sweet ingredients in your cupboard? That was totally me yesterday evening, I realised I had a bar of vegan white chocolate and in desperation created these white chocolate oat things from what I had and I have to say they are actually so yummy – my non-vegan friend gave them two thumbs up of approval! So here is a recipe for an insanely quick and easy sweet treat when you basically have no ingredients!
- 1 cup of oats
- 1 tbsp of agave syrup
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 tsp of olive oil (normally I would use sunflower oil or melted spread but this was all I had and you really could not taste it so it is totally fine)
- 50g of white chocolate (you could use milk or dark, but this was actually a nice complement to the oats and would be great with some raspberries or strawberries I reckon)
n.b. I used Sweet William White Delight Chocolate but if you don’t even have chocolate I imagine these would still be nice and you could just mix in some dried cranberries or raisins or something for a fruit and nut bar.
- In a small bowl mix together all the ingredients except the chocolate until thoroughly combined and divide into individual tart tins or just double the quantities and make a slab in a baking tray that you can cut into pieces – it really doesn’t matter. Press down the mixture and compact it really well, then pop in the fridge for an hour.
- Melt the chocolate in a bowl above hot water in a pan (or just in the microwave) then pour the chocolate over the oats and place in the fridge for 1-2 hours and all done!
So there you have it – a quick and easy treat with only 5 ingredients!
Lots of love,
