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

The bananas naturally sweetened these flapjacks, so you want to use really ripe bananas as it makes for a sweeter, even more banana-ey flapjack.

They are great for breakfast with a dollop of coconut 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!

Enjoy…

  1. Hi, could I use organic rapeseed oil instead of the coconut oil? Does your upcoming cookbook feature a lot of coconut oil and products? Do you give substitutions? as I avoid all coconut? Thanks

  2. 4 stars
    I really enjoyed these flapjacks. So nice they aren’t too sweet. I might add another tbs of maple syrup next time and pop them in the oven a bit longer. Really yummy though. Thank you x
