What You’ll Need to Make The Perfect Vegan Flapjack
Before we dive into the recipe, let’s take a look at the essential ingredients for making delicious vegan flapjacks. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Rolled oats: Rolled oats are the base of our flapjacks and provide a chewy texture. Be sure to use certified gluten-free oats if you have a gluten sensitivity or if you’re simply after gluten free flapjacks!
- Coconut oil: Coconut oil is used as a binder in place of butter or eggs. It also adds a subtle coconut flavour.
- Brown sugar: Brown sugar, or light brown sugar, provides sweetness and caramelises during baking for a delicious, golden brown colour.
- Maple syrup: Maple syrup is used to further sweeten the flapjacks and also helps to bind the ingredients together.
- Vanilla extract: Vanilla extract adds a warm, comforting flavour to our flapjacks.
- Salt: A pinch of salt helps to balance out the sweetness and enhance the flavours.
Optional ingredients for additional flavour or texture variations:
- Nuts: Chopped nuts such as almonds or walnuts can add a satisfying crunch to the flapjacks.
- Dried fruits: Dried fruits like raisins or cranberries can add a chewy texture and burst of flavour.
- Spices: Cinnamon or nutmeg can be added for warm, cozy flavours.
By using these essential ingredients, you’ll be well on your way to making delicious vegan flapjacks in no time!
