Vegan Cornbread Flapjacks (aka Vegan Pancakes) Recipe

Vegan Cornbread Flapjacks

If you’re looking for a vegan breakfast recipe for yourself or to make a guest, these Vegan Cornbread Flapjacks are sure to please!

To start though, you may be wondering what’s the difference between vegan pancakes and vegan flapjacks. Well…in North America, not much. North Americans tend to use the words ‘pancake’ and ‘flapjack’ interchangeably. “Flapjacks,” in the UK however, refer to more a granola bar type treat – just so you know.

We’ve just always called these ‘flapjacks,’ so we’re sticking to it.

If you’re also wondering how good a vegan flapjack can be, then get ready to be impressed. The nutty cornmeal is the perfect balance for your favorite syrup. Plus, the apple sauce and coconut oil keep it nice and moist.

We often make this recipe using gluten free flours for guests with dietary restrictions. Time and again, it wins people over and they ask us for the recipe, which is why we decided to share it here. Try it for yourself and let us know what you think.
