Recipe: Three-Ingredient Plant Strong Flapjacks

Now that the Happy Herbivore 28 Day Challenge is over, I’m determined to continue with a whole foods, plant-based diet in style! I’ve been experiencing the odd craving for various pre-plant based favourites, and today I fancied a flapjack. Ordinarily, flapjacks, even vegan ones, are filled with sugar and fat and contain around 400 calories a serving, so I decided to experiment and create my own plant strong version. Three ingredients later, I’d created a scrummy new treat, and it could not have been easier to make!

 

Three-Ingredient Plant Strong Flapjacks

Makes 6-8 flapjacks

 

2 cups rolled oats

2 tbsp peanut butter. Crunchy and smooth will both work; I used crunchy to give the flapjacks a nutty texture

6-8 dates, pitted and chopped

 

*Preheat oven to 375/190/Gas mark 5, and line a small oven dish with baking paper

* Gently heat peanut butter in a pan, stirring continuously. Add 1-2 tbsp warm water if desired, to create a runnier consistency

* When peanut butter has slightly liquidised, add oats and dates, and stir until ingredients are fully combined in a ball. Add a small amount of warm water to bind, if necessary

* Transfer mixture to oven dish, and pat down mixture to approximately 3/4 inch thickness

* Bake on middle shelf of oven for 25 minutes, until golden brown

* Leave to cool, and dig in!

 

These flapjacks are plant-strong, vegan, sugar-free, low fat, and delicious! I hope you all enjoy!
