  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup or honey

Get making!

  1. Make the base – melt the coconut oil, nut butter and syrup then pour into a bowl with the oats and mix to form a flapjack mixture.
  2. Press into a lined tin and chill while you make the coconut layer – melt the coconut oil and syrup then pour into a bowl with the desiccated coconut.
  3. Spread this over the base evenly then return to the fridge.
  4. Melt the coconut oil and mint chocolate then pour over the top to cover. Sprinkle over festive sprinkles then chill in the fridge for 2 hours to set.
  5. Pop out of the tin, cut into pieces and enjoy! Keep in the fridge for up to 1 week.
