Vegan Flapjacks

In which I make some vegan flapjacks...

Several of my colleagues are vegan so what better excuse to modify a traditional recipe?


Ready to bake!

  • 300 g (10 oz) oats
  • 175 g (6 oz) brown sugar
  • 175 ml (6 fl oz) vegetable oil
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 190°C (170°C fan). 
  2. Heat the golden syrup, sugar and oil together in a saucepan. 
  3. Remove from the heat and stir the oats into the mixture.
  4. Place in a greased square baking tin.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes.*
  6. Remove from the oven and leave to cool before removing from the tin and cutting into squares or rectangles.
  7. Enjoy the gooey goodness!


*In the non-vegan version of this recipe butter is used, which seems to aid in the setting of the flapjacks. You may want to keep cooking them until you see a crust starting to form.
