Who doesn’t love a good flapjack?
Being vegan doesn’t mean we have to miss out on delicious (but usually buttery) baked treats – it just means we need to get a lil’ creative.
This flapjack is super easy to make, and can be whipped up using ingredients you’ve probably already got in your kitchen cupboard.
Here’s a breakdown of the goodness inside these babies:
- Oats: keeps you fuller for longer, perfect for breakfast
- Chia seeds: packed with antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids
- Sesame seeds: good source of fibre to support digestive health
- Walnuts: helps to nourish the beneficial bacteria in your gut
- Almonds: good source of vitamin E to maintain healthy skin
- Bananas: full of vitamin B6 to support your nervous system
This vegan banana flapjack is healthy and delicious. Double win.
- 3 bananas
- 25g chia seeds
- 25g sesame seeds
- 25g almonds
- 25g walnuts

- 4 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp coconut oil (melted)

- Leave the flapjack to cool for 10-15 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely before slicing it into squares.
