Plant-Based Flapjacks

When it comes to simple snacks, nothing can beat these flapjacks.

Easy to make, they require only three basic ingredients: bananas, oats and peanut butter. Any seeds, nuts, dried fruits and spices are optional.

Let's look at how you can get started with your flapjacks today! 

INGREDIENTS

6 servings

  • 1 cup oats
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds (optional)
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries (optional)
  • Pinch of cinnamon

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Combine all dry ingredients and set it aside. 
  2. Mash bananas with peanut butter and stir well.
  3. Add all the dry ingredients to mixed bananas with nut butter and combine well. If the batter is to thick you can add a bit of water, plant based milk or fruit juice.
  4. Leave the mixture for 15-20 minutes* while you preheat the oven.
  5. Spread the mix on the baking tray lined with grease-proof paper and bake around 20 minutes in 150ºC (~300ºF).
  6. Leave it aside to cool down and cut into squares.

Banana and peanut butter flapjacks can be stored in a fridge for 4-5 days. They are also freezer friendly.

*This is an important step. Leaving the mixture for at least 15-20 minutes will help to soften the oats before baking. You can even mix all the ingredients in the evening and leave it overnight in the fridge.

SUBSTITUTES:

PEANUT BUTTER - use any other nut or seed butter instead. 

SUNFLOWER SEEDS - can be replace with other seeds or chopped nuts e.g. pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, almonds, walnuts and peanuts.

DRIED CRANBERRIES - you can swap them for raisins, chopped apricots, dates, figs and other dry fruits.
