Banana, Cocao & 4 Nut Butter Flapjacks (Sugar Free & GF)

Banana, Cocao & 4 Nut Butter Flapjacks
Time: 20 mins

I made these flapjacks earlier in between doing chemistry work and going to a chemistry lecture (4-5pm on a Friday, yuck!), when I was in need of something much more fun to do; the units for next semester however seem a great deal more interesting (and actually related to nutrition) though so I'm really looking forward to starting that and learning more on the subject! I brought a few flapjacks along to today's the lecture and ended up giving them to my friends; two of which are vegan and one vegetarian and they most definitely approved these (described as "amaaaaaazing")! I completely made up the recipe as I went along for these, using the 4 different nut butters (all Meridian) I have, this recipe is also refined sugar and gluten free.

You'll need:

Banana, Cocao & 4 Nut Butter Flapjacks
  • Baking tray
  • Saucepan
  • Wooden spoon
  • Fork


  • 2 large ripe bananas
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 medjool dates, pitted & finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tsp cashew butter
  • 1 tsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp hazelnut butter
  • 2 tbsp cocao powder
  • 1/2 vanilla pod, scraped
  • 2 cups rolled oats (gluten free)


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.
  2. In the saucepan mash the bananas with a fork before adding in the coconut oil, dates, cocao and nut butters and heat gently, stirring all the ingredients together until combined.
  3. Add in the oats and mix together thoroughly, then transfer the mixture into the baking tray and smooth out.
  4. Bake for 12 minutes before removing from the oven & allowing to cool, then slice into 16 pieces and serve up with a smoothie or cup of tea and enjoy! Cassidy xx
