Chocolate chunk banana flapjack

These were the result of having very ripe bananas sitting in my fruit bowl. I put a poll on my Instagram stories and you guys wanted banana flapjacks!

This recipe couldn’t be simpler, made with just 5 ingredients:

  • Butter
  • Golden syrup or honey
  • Ripe bananas
  • Oats
  • Chopped dark chocolate

The texture is dense and soft, just how I like my flapjacks. They remind me of the flapjack bites you get in most supermarkets… thats how soft they are!

I used a fruit based golden syrup by Sweet Freedom but you use any golden syrup or honey. You can also make these vegan by using a good vegan butter, I like Vitalite.

I used a 50/50 mix of rolled and jumbo oats. I love adding chunky jumbo oats to flapjacks but its not necessary if you don’t have them in your pantry.
