Peanut Butter & Banana Flapjacks Recipe

flapjack Theses are so easy to make and very tasty too. I made these for a group of friends and the feedback was very positive. (they loved it) none of them were vegan who tried it and they didn't realise it was either. TIP - when you press the mixture into the baking tin, press in firmly until it is tightly packed and smooth and flat. This will helps it to keep its shape one it is baked and cut into slices. You can also use a cookie cutter to cut up the flapjacks, as this presents them nicely. Ingredients
