Healthy Banana Flapjacks – dairy free & gluten free

These banana flapjacks are super easy to make, really healthy, juicy & delicious!

They are naturally sweetened by the banana so they are definitely better if you use really ripe bananas as it makes for a sweeter more banana’y flapjack.
They are great for breakfast with a dollop of coconut Coyo yogurt, if you’re on the go, or as a snack an hour before a workout. I have made these many times and always take them on hikes with me for slow release energy.
This recipe changes all the time I literally throw in whatever I have in my cupboard. I sometimes make them really nutty and add lots of peanut butter, other times more dried fruit & seeds.

These flapjacks are dairy, gluten and vegan.

Here’s my basic recipe which can be tweaked depending on what you fancy adding in! Enjoy…
