Clean Eating Hobnobs

Oh yes, you are reading it correctly. Clean eating Hobnobs recipe. We dare to say it tastes even better than the original product. It has a beautiful crunch, gentle sweetness in the biscuits and topped with raw chocolate. Dreams do come true, dont they...at least the clean eating ones do.

Clean Eating Hobnobs

The traditional Hobnobs are made with the following:

Rolled Oats (30%), Milk Chocolate (25%) [Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass, Dried Skimmed Milk, Dried Whey (Milk), Butter Oil (Milk), Vegetable Fats (Sal and/or Shea, Palm), Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin, E476), Natural Flavouring], Wholemeal Wheat Flour (16%), Sugar, Vegetable Oil (Palm), Glucose-Fructose Syrup, Raising Agents (Sodium Bicarbonate, Ammonium Bicarbonate), Salt

Now compare that with ours down below....do we need to say more?? grin

Clean Eating Hobnobs

In this clean eating hobnobs recipe we have used raw chocolate, however if you are not on our 3 Month Clean Eating challenge you could use classic dark chocolate or dark chocolate chips. The difference between raw chocolate and normal chocolate is the ingredients used. We will put you down the ingredients and see for yourself:

Traditional dark chocolate ingredients (Tesco Plain Dark 85% chocolate):

Cocoa Mass, Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Fat Reduced Cocoa Powder, Emulsifier (Sunflower Lecithins), Flavouring

Raw Chocolate ingredients (we love Ombar Raw Dark 72%):

raw cacao*, cocoa butter*, coconut sugar*, Lactobacillus acidophilus. *certified organic

You see the difference? Raw chocolate uses raw cacao compare to fat reduced cocoa powder and cocoa mass, coconut sugar rather then normal white sugar and there is no emulsifier or flavouring in raw chocolate. Sold? We are!  Of course this is still a treat, so should be enjoyed in moderation.

Clean Eating Hobnobs

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oat flour (oats blended in your food processor)
  • 1/4 cup oats (do not blend them into a flour)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup ground almonds (if you need nut free version for for ground sunflower seeds)
  • 1 egg (for vegan version use 1 flax eggs which is 1 tbsp ground flax seeds mixed with 3 tbsp water, let sit for 10 minutes)
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 small raw chocolate or dark chocolate
  • Optional: 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180c and line your baking tray with baking paper
  2. Put the oat flour, ground almonds, coconut sugar and baking powder in a bowl, combine well
  3. Next add the coconut oil, egg and vanilla extract (if using)
  4. Mix well, the mixture should be quite wet, so add the 1/4 cup of whole oats, combine again and place in the fridge for an hour
  5. Working with wet hands create small balls and place them on the lined baking tray. Wet a back of a tablespoon and press down to create a biscuit shape. The mixture will be sticky, so make sure you wet the spoon
  6. You should be able to make 12 biscuits.
  7. Bake the biscuits for around 20 minutes or until they’re golden brown and crisp. Once the time is up, switch the oven off and leave them in the oven for another 20 minutes with the oven door slightly open. This will make them extra crunchy!
  8. All is left to melt the chocolate and dip one side of the biscuits in.
