Flapjacks are almost like pancakes, but they are smaller and a bit thicker. They are quick and easy to prepare and delicious to enjoy any time of the day. This specific recipe includes fried banana but there are so many different topping ideas you can play with when preparing them.

Topping ideas for flapjacks with fried banana

Try some other fresh fruits like peaches, strawberries, apples, pears or pineapples as toppings. Berries also work exceptionally well. You can also try some dried apricots or figs for another unique fruity twist. Sprinkle some coconut flakes with cinnamon for some extra delicious flavour.

For some added crunch, chop some raw nuts like almonds, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, or macadamia nuts and spread them on top of the stack. To deepen the flavour of the nuts, toast them before chopping them.
