Pure Sunflower.

How hard do you want the margarine, tho? If you need something like hard butter, Trex cooking fat is a common kosher option and is vegan, altho it doesn not taste buttery at all.

It will be for flapjacks. I think I will try that, see how it comes out.

agreed.

pure sunflower' and 'pure soya' should both be suitable butter alternatives for non-dairy flapjacks- i often bake using them :)

Tomor margarine is what vegans commonly used and would be better for flapjack i think - it's designed to be a butter 'replacement'
(find it in big supermarkets, especially those in Jewish areas)

Trex is more designed to be a lard replacement and used in pastry

Apparently I live 5 minutes from the largest Hasidic Jewish community in Europe, so this may be possible...

Isn't margarine by definition non-dairy?

Most margarine-type things appear to have (small) quantities of buttermilk mixed in.

I agree with the recommendations for Pure. I have cooked flapjacks using it in the past - the Soya version, I think. It's fairly easy to get hold of at least.
