Easy Vegan Flapjacks

These flapjacks are dairy-free, egg-free, vegan friendly, and super tasty. 👌🏼 They are also really fast and easy to make! 🥞

PS. Unlike most vegan recipes, I made these without any out of the ordinary ingredients, so that you can make them on the go, with things you probably already have in the pantry. 😉

You need:

  • 2 large ripe bananas (mashed)
  • 60 ml (4 tbsp) caster sugar
  • 2.5 ml (1/2 tsp) salt
  • 60 ml (4 tbsp) oil
  • 250 ml (1 cup) flour
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) baking powder
  • 250 ml (1 cup) water

To make:

  1. Blend all ingredients thoroughly in a bowl (in no particular order) until the batter is a smooth but thick consistency. Only needs a few seconds to blend.
  2. Heat a little extra oil in a frying pan over a medium heat.
  3. Drop about 2 tbsp of batter into the pan to create each flapjack.
  4. Fry on each side for about 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown.


  • You’ll be able to make about 4-5 flapjacks at the same time.
  • When the flapjacks starts forming bubbles in the pan, this is a good indication that it’s time to flip them over.
  • NB. Ensure to press each flapjack down lightly with a spatula when flipping them over over to ensure that they cook through evenly.
  • You could use self-raising flour if you’d like them to be even fluffier.
  • Serve warm or cool, with your choice of toppings like syrup, sliced banana, berries, etc.

And there you have it – easy peasy vegan flapjacks AKA American pancakes AKA English crumpets.
