Cherry and Coconut Flapjack

Over the last few months I’ve been experimenting with different flapjack flavours from rhubarb flapjacks to chocolate banana flapjacks and one surprisingly lovely flavour combination is cherry coconut.

Cherry and Coconut Flapjack

These cherry coconut flapjacks are so easy to make – as are all flapjacks. Taking just over half an hour, and using just store cupboard ingredients, flapjack recipes are so painless to make and great for any occasion. They’re a fantastic alternative to cakes if you have a school bake sale, friends coming over or want to take something with you when you visit family. Flapjacks are perfect.

Can you make vegan flapjacks?

You can easily make flapjacks vegan by using a vegan butter alternative like coconut oil or a plant butter and although they’re not very healthy sweet treats they’re definitely worth every single mouthful! Flapjacks are a wonderful little indulgence and the addition of glace cherries and dessicated coconut sure do make for a great flavour combination.
