The Flapjack Girls
Update: This business has closed permanently.
I was curious and excited when I found out about The Flapjack Girls, for not only do they solely focus on providing plant-based Flapjacks, but they are also based in London! Don't worry, if you're not in London, you can buy them online!
Thanks to Hibi Racs for sharing her journey with us below.
What do you specialise in selling?
We specialize in selling vegan and free-from flapjacks. The idea was to produce an oaty carbohydrate based snack, but with no butter, sugar, golden syrup or preservatives as you would normally find in flapjacks.
Where are you based?
We are based in North London.
Do you serve those who are local to you or can others who are further away access your goodies? If so, how?
Yes, I am very interested in trying to grown on a local level to begin with. However it is possible to purchase them through the website.
What inspired you to create a business that solely focuses on vegan flapjacks?
I guess I thought I could make a tastier flapjacks than some which are currently on the market. Oats are so nutritious and high in fiber. I couldn't understand why such a nutritious ingredient needs to be played around with so much to the point where other ingredients will overpower the taste of oats.
Tell me a bit about yourselves before you launched this company
I was always a bit of a foodie. I was diagnosed with a stomach condition which caused me to drastically rethink my diet. So I wanted to make a contribution for people who suffer from food intolerances, although not exclusively. Of course, they can be enjoyed by all.
What is your vision for the future for The Flapjack Girls ?
Just to keep going so long as the demand is there. I intended to grow the business organically, so that is how I have begun - from humble beginnings. Far less stressful than other strategies and more enjoyable.
