  • 1 1/2 cups of jumbo oats
  • 1/4 cup of chia/ground flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup of desiccated coconut
  • 1 tsp of ground cinnamon/1/4 tsp of nutmeg/1/4 tsp of mixed spice

  • 1/2 cup honey (heated slightly)

METHOD
  • Heat the oven gas mark 4/160 C/360 F.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and set aside.
  • Line a 12 cup muffin tin with butter/margarine generously or can use cooking spray and set aside.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry mix and combine until all throughly mixed and coated in sticky honey.
  • Equally divide the mix into the muffin tin and press down firmly.
  • Using a shot glass or your hands, press down to make the sides come up and create a cup look with the indentation.
  • Bake for about 12-15 mins until golden brown.
  • Shape when it comes straight out of the oven if it has lost shape using a small spoon. 
  • Let it cool completely in the tin. Run a sharp knife around the edge to loosen slightly to remove them from the tin. 
  • Top with your choice of filling

Chocolate Orange 

  • Melt 300g of dark chocolate in a Bain Marie ensuring it doesn't touch the water. 
  • Add 1/2 tsp of orange extract and 50g of butter/coconut oil. Melt until smooth and silky, if more butter or oil is needed add to the mix. Consistency should be not too runny and not too thick.
  • Using a spoon fill the cups and leave to set in the fridge until hard.
  • Drizzle more chocolate and top with pistachio crumbs and sea salt flakes.
