Vegan Flapjack

This is my mums recipe passed down to be and was always a winner among friends and school events. Iv'e experimented with variations over the years so feel free to do the same, I'll provide some suggestions below. This recipe is so energy yielding and yummy. You can make it as healthy or guilty as you like, share below what worked best for you as I'd love to know! <3

Yes I ate it all...stop judging

Ingredients: (serves 8)
240g plain porridge oats
180g non-dairy margarine (I use Pure soya spread)
120g brown sugar
120g golden syrup/honey (or any replacement such as maple syrup or agave nectar)

Measure out the ingredients then melt the margarine, sugar and syrup together in a pan, stirring to prevent it from bubbling. Once you can tap the bottom of the pan without feeling the crunch of sugar, remove from the hob and stir in the oats. This is literally all you need to do, how awesome is that! Simply spoon the mixture into any baking tray you choose, I usually go for round cake tins but rectangular also work well. There's no need to grease them as the mixture won't stick :)
Bake at 180 degrees for approximately 20 minutes and voila!! It's so simple and delicious, with the added perk of being completely vegan, YAAAAAS xx

I added melted chocolate on top here for my friend's birthday, I didn't get to try any but he said it was (and I quote) 'peng' . Just saying...

  • I usually replace the 120g of sugar with two bananas because this gives it a spongey texture, means less processed sugar so is a healthier option and is even more filling, so it's seriously a win-win situation!
  • You can add sunflower or pumpkin seeds for that extra health kick, or even just for a variation on the norm. If you're baking for others though just ask them if they are a seed fan as I'm aware some people aren't too keen
  • Like the photo above, you can add melted chocolate to the top after you've taken it out the oven. This becomes solid when you let it cool and is so delicious as a naughty treat! Perfect for parties and the festive season!
  • You can add pretty much any fruit you like or can imagine, berries taste great stirred into the mixture, or even orange/lemon zest. Experiment and have fun with it!
