I seriously love flapjack but its probably not the best snack we can eat due to being highly processed, full of butter, golden syrup and sugar… all the yummy stuff. So I have experimented with some low sugar, high protein flapjack bites. These are chocolate banana protein flapjacks and they would be perfect for a snack or a breakfast on the go.
225g – Oats
2 medium ripe bananas (200g ish)
50g – coconut oil (to bind)
80g – peanut butter
60g – protein powder
1tbsp – Sukrin Gold
1.Melt together the coconut oil and peanut butter in a pan
2.Mash up the bananas and add to the melted ingredients off the heat
3.Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix together until fully combined
4.Pour into a lined tray or like me into muffin or cupcake tins and bake at 180C for 20mins
Now although these are all natural flapjacks and higher in protein, it is really important to remember that they still have calories and actually these flapjacks are quite calorie dense due to the peanut butter and coconut oil. Enjoy them in moderation and be aware of your calorie intake.
I am currently using Neat Nutrition protein powder in all my recipes and it is perfect for baking as it doesn’t go tough and chewy. My top tip for protein baking is to spend a bit extra and get a really high quality powder…. your recipes will thank you.
This recipe can be adapted to any flavour you like, change up the flavour of protein, add in nuts, seeds, fruit or chocolate chips and enjoy. I also think they would be incredible half dipped in chocolate. Be creative with your food and you will find it far easier to stick to plan and hit your goals.
