Gluten Free Oat Flapjacks

Enjoy these tasty gluten free oat flapjacks! They make a great healthy snack or a quick breakfast! Having discovered recently that I can eat oats if they are gluten-free without having a reaction, I’m thrilled to be able to make this vegan version of these tasty flapjacks that I used to make years ago, replacing the butter with coconut oil.

  1. These look great. I cannot eat almonds, what do you recommend as a substitute? I have plenty of walnuts and pecans in the fridge I could try, but I would love your opinion!

    1. Thanks! I would recommend walnuts. I’m sure pecans would go well also. Thanks for asking my opinion! I hope they turn out well!

  2. Very nice Flapjacks. I liked them a lot. Just added ground cinnamon to the oats, came out delicious. Probably the nicest Flapjacks ever made. Thanks for sharing Kate.

    1. Thank you for your comment Seema! It means a lot! I really like these flapjacks too and make them regularly. The cinnamon sounds like a nice addition to the flapjacks! Will have to try it!
