Ingredients
Biscuit base:
  • 175 g (1 ⅓ cups) plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 100 g (1 cup) rolled oats
  • 200 g (1 ⅓ cups) soft brown sugar
  • 110 g (½ cup) coconut oil
  • 110 g (4 oz) peanut butter
  • 2 eggs beaten
Topping:
  • 150 g (5 oz) plain chocolate chips or plain chocolate broken into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • Optional: 2 tablespoons salted peanuts chopped
Instructions
Grease and line: 1 baking tin 18 cm x 26 cm ( 7" x 10½")
Preheat oven: 180 ℃ / 350 ℉ / Gas Mark 4
  1. It's best to soften your coconut oil before you start mixing - I did mine with a couple of 10 second bursts in the microwave.
  2. Place all the biscuit base ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer or in a large mixing bowl and mix together until a dough is formed.
  3. Using a spatula, transfer the biscuit dough to your lined tin - spread out and level using the spatula.
  4. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes until golden brown, the centre should still be slightly soft.
  5. Leave to cool in the tin while you make the ganache topping.
  6. Melt the chocolate and oil in a bowl in the microwave with a couple of 30 second bursts or in a bowl over a pan of simmering water.
  7. Check the biscuit base is cool before pouring the ganache over the top.
  8. If you're using the optional chopped salted peanuts, wait 10 minutes before sprinkling them over your ganache.
  9. Wait until set before cutting into slices or squares.
