Vegan Flapjacks


Things have been rough in work recently and we all can’t wait for half term, bring on Thursday. To help cheer everyone up I’ve had a bit of a baking marathon today. First to be made was a batch of vegan flapjacks. One of my workmates is vegan and I didn’t want her to feel left out.

I have to admit I feel confident with vegetarian cooking, but not vegan. I’m always worried about putting in an ingredient that isn’t vegan. A few months back I nearly made a huge booboo when in a fleeting moment I thought of putting honey in a vegan dish, luckily I clicked before putting it in! I decided vegan flapjacks was the fail safe option. Of course if you wanted to make an non-vegan version just replace the soya spread with butter.

I’ve entered these flapjacks into Mansi’s Weekend Breakfast Blogging event.

Vegan Flapjacks

    […] Rather than giving presents out to fellow workmates I usually make a batch of festive goodies. As it was Xmas and not all my workmates can eat my eccles mince pies, I decided to have a go at making vegan, wheat-free mince pies. Not only the pastry had to be vegan, but also the mincemeat. It just so happened that the brand of cider & rum I used in the suet-free mincemeat I made a few weeks back was also vegan. This was a new departure in baking for me. Before now the only vegan baking I have ever had the courage to attempt is flapjacks. […]

    I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but will, I really appreciate this person’s acceptance and respect for us Vegans and thinking, really thinking, about what we do and do not eat. Not being judgemental and criticising, just willing to give a treat to all friends, no matter what their dietary needs/choices.
    Shame there aren’t more folk in the world like you, I reckon it would be a better place.
    Thanks for the recipe.
