A super simple recipe thats deliciously plant based and so easy to make.
This recipe will occupy your taste buds and your wandering mind, during isolation. I whipped this up in around 40 minutes including cooking time. Filled with bananas, chocolate, rolled oats and a few other little ingredients, it's safe to say it didn't last long in our house due to there being 5 of us.
I find baking so therapeutic, it soothes my mind and I love seeing people enjoying my recipes. Give this one a go at home, its a crowd-pleaser that is child, and first time baking, friendly.
Vegan Chocolate Banana Flapjack
Serves 8 Cooking and Preparation time: 40 minutes
250g Rolled porridge oats
125g of vegan butter/vegan margarine
125g Light brown sugar
3tbsp of golden syrup or maple syrup
80g of dark chocolate (vegan)
To begin, melt the sugar, golden syrup and vegan butter on the hob in a pan on a low heat until all the ingredients have melted. Leave to cool slightly then add in 1 mashed banana and the oats. Mix together until all oats are coated with the golden mix.
Once combined, add in 3/4 of the chocolate and combine together. Turn out into a grease proof paper lined tin.
TIP: scrunch up the grease proof paper first, smooth it out and it will fit snugly into your tin.
I used a loaf tin (more for the lack of tins in my mum and dads house- note to self add one to the shopping list) which was a 2lb tin.
Chop up your other banana into 8 slices and place on top on flapjack and sprinkle the remaining chocolate over the top.
Place in a pre heated oven at 180 degrees or Gas Mark 4 until golden brown on the top and the bananas have caramelised. Allow to cool, then slice into 8 pieces and serve.
Try to save some for an isolated friend or later, unfortunately, ours didn't last long. Managed to save a few pieces to wrap and drop off at a friends door for a little treat.
Lots of love and well wishes.
