These apple and chocolate flapjacks are more like a museli or granola breakfast bar, in that they are dry and not sticky or overly sweet. The sweetness comes chocolate chips and the natural sweetness from the grated apples. And of course to demonstrate the apple content, I had to press a few apple slices to the top.
I am sharing some of these flapjacks with Choclette of Chocolate Log Blog and Chele of The Chocolate Teapot for this months We Should Cocoa Challenge. The theme for November is to create a chocolate dish with the inclusion of apples and it is being hosted by Chele.
