Cooking with Mini Divas: Chocolate and peanut butter flapjacks

This morning I had two little ones at home, my lovely Thursday morning with them.

Mia is a little under the weather, so rather than going out to play we stayed home and cooked.
I rifled through the cupboard and made up as we went along; we needed something, quick, easy and fun. At this age (two and a half), there is around 20 minutes of mixing time as the limit before fighting ensues....

S,o this is what we did:

Divas choc and peanut butter flapjacks

2 cups of porridge oats
1 cup of cocoa (we used finely grated choc left over from Auntie Emily's hot choc at Xmas)
1 teaspoon bicarb of soda
250g butter
2 tablespoons of peanut butter
1 cup raisins
1 cup sugar

Ok, so this isn't healthy but it's fun  - mix together the oats, cocoa, bicarb and raisins. Melt the butter and peanut butter together, pour over the oats and stir in.
Lick spoons.

Press into a greased tin and bake for 20 mins at 160 degrees.

Eat and smear onto faces. Wipe off. Repeat.
