Homemade Chocolate Hobnobs (Vegan Gluten-free)

Hobnobs used to be my guilty pleasure along with chocolate digestive biscuits. I could easily eat half a pack in one sitting. Once I started there was no stopping until I felt sick! 

I must admit that I haven’t had a hobnob in years, but I still remember exactly how delicious they taste! So crunchy and sweet. Since chocolate makes any dessert taste better in my opinion, it’s not a surprise that I like chocolate hobnobs even more. They’re dangerously addictive!

I came across a picture of a hobnob while browsing on Instagram and it hit me that I’ve never tried to recreate them. Why has it taken me this long to realise this?! I just had to give them a go. I had to make them a couple of times and play around with the ingredients and quantities before I was happy with the end result. I was on a mission to create a healthier hobnob that had the right crunchiness and sweetness!  

This version of homemade chocolate hobnobs is much healthier and they’re really easy to make. They only call for 6 ingredients that are easy to get hold of at most supermarket.

These homemade chocolate hobnobs are:

  • Vegan 
  • Gluten-free
  • Dairy-free
  • High in fibre 
  • Made using only 6 ingredients
  • Crunchy 
  • And delicious! 

Not that just because this recipe is vegan and gluten-free doesn’t mean you can go and eat the whole batch in one sitting. These biscuits still contain sugar (from the maple syrup), fats and calories, but if you’re going to indulge in a sweet treat, it might as well be something delicious that’s free from cholesterol and contains good ingredients like oats and ground almonds and no other unnecessary additives and preservatives.

  2. Your guilty pleasure was 1/2 pack? Only? Yeah cuz mine was a full pack 😉
    No seriously these looks amazing an are a great alternative to the mainstream version.
    Thanks so much for sharing.

  3. I’ve never been a fan of Hobnobs – to me they always resembled daub (as in wattle and daub!) but I have to say that your version looks so much nicer.

    Amato mio, on the other hand, loves Hobnobs but we can’t get them here… so I guess that’s another reason to make these, right? And I just happen to have all the ingredients in my cupboard, barring the oat flour but I can grind some oats to make some.

    Today shall be known as Hobnob Friday! 😉

  4. Is there any way to get written directions (my ISP isn’t fast enough for videos so I can’t always watch a video)? Also, the one time I was able to see the video, it showed cookies that looked like they were put down with a scoop before they were flattened. What size was it?

    These look good, and I can’t wait to try them.

    Thanks!

  5. These look fantastic! I’m wondering if I could substitute a non nut ingredient for the almonds? Let me know what you think could work.

      You could try using more oat flour, although I haven’t tried it myself so I don’t know how that would work. I imagine they would be less crunchy. Let me know how they turn out! 🙂

  6. I would love to make these homemade chocolate hobnobs. However when I tried, several times, to bring up the entire recipe, I got a blank screen. So much for this recipe!

  7. I miss hobnobs so much. Haven’ t had them since I had a heart attack. I made your recipe, but exchanged coconut oil for Smart Balance, and used only almond flour. I’m sure your recipe is better, but I was very happy with the heart healthy version. Thanks so much!
