It’s been a while since I posted a cake recipe–but I think you’ll like this one. I think it’s such a delicious mix of flavours which are enhanced by a creamy coconut tahini topping and gooey warm berries.

It’s also incredibly easy to make–just a matter of adding all the ingredients to a food processor, blitzing, spooning into a baking tray, baking and viola!

As it’s made with buckwheat flour, it’s completely gluten-free, vegan of course and sweetened with a little coconut sugar and medjool dates.

For the flapjacks

  • 3 really ripe organic bananas chopped
  • 2 cooked organic beetroots
  • 2 scopes acai optional
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 cups organic gluten-free oats
  • 1/3 cup flax
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/3 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/3 cup ground almonds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • Pinch chilli flakes
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil

The toppings

  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • Handful muesli or mixed nuts and seeds


  • Pre heat the oven to gas mark 5/190C.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Add the banana, beetroot, almond butter and acai in a food processor until thoroughly blended.
  • Heat coconut oil gently in a saucepan until melted, then add to the wet mix–pulse for a second.
  • Add the wet mix to the mixture & stir well until everything is combined (this shouldn’t be too wet).
  • Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper & spread the mix on top, around an inch thick.
  • Top with the blueberries and your choice of crunchy toppings.
  • Bake for 30 minutes–test the middle of the flapjacks with a knife to ensure they are cooked through. If not, bake for a further few minutes and test again.
  • Remove from the oven, leave to cool slightly & then divide into squares.

  1. Hey

    I made these over the weekend – AMAZING!!! My beetroot hating daughter liked them! My footballer son loves them! Just my favourite gym buddy (aka my man) to go now

  2. Haha, I usually thought of flapjacks as pancakes, but it turns out they’re oat bars! Wow, I think that beetroot is a daring ingredient, but I am so excited to give it a try. I will be the first to say that I used to HATE beet in anything sweet, but upon trying this beet juice on a juice cleanse, I had to change my mind right away!

    1. Hey Cassie!
      He he they are oat bars!
      I absolutely love beetroot.. So not so daring for me but I promise you don’t get a strong beetroot taste just a lovely purple colour.
      Can’t wait to hear what you think!
      Love, Niki xx
