Banana Date Flapjacks

Soft chewy flapjacks, perfect for an on-the go snack or afternoon pick-me-up!

Flapjacks are so underrated aren't they? I can't remember the last time I bought a flapjack probably because other cool treats blocked its limelight. But that texture, the chewiness is utterly mouth-watering and just what you need when that afternoon slump hits, you've got your cup of tea and you just need a little flapjack to make it perfect. Well here I am with a delicious recipe made with bananas and dates for a healthier sweetness.

Blueberry and Almond Flapjacks

Triple Berry Crumble Bars


Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 25 minutes
Serves: 16 squares


250g Dates
2½ Ripe bananas
230g Porridge oats
60g Plain flour
120g Vegan butter
2tbsp Soya milk
3tbsp Date or Maple syrup
2tbsp Mixed seeds
1tsp Cinnamon
Pinch of salt


✿Preheat the oven to 180℃ and grease and line a 20cm baking tray with baking paper.
✿Melt the butter in the microwave and then stir in the soya milk. Mash 2 of the bananas until you have hardly any lumps then add to the bowl with the milk and butter.
✿In a large bowl combine the porridge, flour, cinnamon and salt and stir. Pour in the wet ingredients and date syrup and mix altogether till combined. 
✿Pour into the baking tray and sprinkle over the mixed seeds. Slice the half banana and place on top of the flapjacks - I tried to do this so that each square had a banana on top.
✿Bake in the oven for 25 minutes until browning on top and firm to the touch. Leave to cool completely in the tray before removing and slicing into squares. Keep stored in an airtight container at room temperature. Enjoy!
