What does it taste like?

Heavenly hunks are sweet and salty, with a chewy texture. The oats and chocolate chips give them a decadent flavor, while the coconut flakes add a tropical touch.

The tapioca flour helps to bind the ingredients together and gives it that classic cookie chewiness. The light corn syrup or brown rice syrup adds sweetness without making them overly sweet.

How did I first get introduced to the  heavenly hunks?

I first heard about heavenly hunks from a friend who had tried them and couldn’t stop raving about them. She said they were her go-to snack for an afternoon pick-me-up, or as an on-the-go treat. She made them at home and offered me one.

After trying them myself, I was hooked! I asked for the recipe and decided to make my own copycat version. I’ve been making them ever since, and they never disappoint!

Ingredients

  • 2 1/3 cups rolled oats divided

  • 1/3 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup or brown rice syrup
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil melted
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar

Step by step instructions

Step 1:

In a food processor, pulse 1 cup of the rolled oats into a powder. Set aside.

Step 4:

Scoop out half of the cookie batter into an 8×4-inch loaf pan lined with parchment paper (or foil). Press down firmly to create an even layer. Sprinkle chocolate chips over top.
