Over Christmas we have some amazing cookies with cranberry and white chocolate, it's a fairly classic combination but it just works so well. Obviously white chocolate is not the healthiest food in the world, in fact it's the worst of the chocolates but sometimes a little bit healthy can be combined with a little bit naughty. Look at how deliciously healthy and simplistic the rest of the ingredients are.
150g Oat Flour
90g Brown Rice Crispies
100g Dried Cranberrys (these are orange infused, which was delicious)
2 heaped tbsp Cashew Butter
2 tbsp Honey
2 tbsp hot water
1 tsp vanilla extract
30g white chocolate
The flour here is oat flour. This stuff is so easy to make, take organic rolled oats and blitz them in a blender or food processor until it's a flour consistency. If you use brown rice crispies, these bars are gluten free too. The blended oats make the texture much smoother but the rice crispies give it a nice bite. To this delicious combination all you need is cashew butter and honey with hot water and vanilla extract mixed in. Stir everything to combine thoroughly.
To form the bars, just line a lunch box or any rectangular container with cling-film , pour in the mixture and press down as much as possible. Then refrigerate for a least and hour.

Slice up your bars to about 1 inch wide and melt your white chocolate in a double boiler, or with a drop of milk in the microwave for two sets of 20 seconds, stirring well in between and after. Then drizzle the chocolate over the slices until you are tempted to eat them all now ;)
