As you know I've been following a vegan diet for five months now and I'm proud to say that I'm doing really well. The one thing that I thought I would struggle with is with sweet foods. I'm not craving chocolate so much, but I do still like a sweet treat in the afternoon. I've been experimenting with making vegan treats and last week I modified one of my favourite flapjack recipes to make it vegan friendly. I'm pleased to say that they taste exactly the same and this fruit flapjack recipe went down a treat with some friends that I had over for coffee one morning.
They are really easy to make and the oats and seeds make them a great source of protein and the dried fruit provides lots of nutrients like iron from the apricots and antioxidants from the dried cranberries. You can mix up the fruit and seeds too according to your taste.
Fruit Flapjack Recipe
- 150 g Soft brown sugar
- 150 g Non dairy butter I used vitalite
- 4 tablespoon Golden syrup
- 350 g rolled oats
- 50 g Sunflower seeds
- 50 g Dried cranberries
- 50 g Dried apricots diced
- 2 Bananas mashed
Heat the non dairy butter, sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan over a low heat until it is all melted
Take off the heat and add the rest of the dry ingredients, stir until combined
Add the mashed banana and completely mix in
Spread the mixture into a square baking tin and press down.
Bake in an oven preheated to 160 degrees celcius for 20 minutes.
Leave to cool then cut into squares.
Honestly these are so dreamy they won't last long in your house! I also made a little YouTube video to demonstrate making them if you want to watch. Let me know if you make them!
