If you’re looking for a high protein flapjack recipe that’s packed with healthy ingredients then look no further!
This recipe combines oats, seeds, dried fruit and protein (along with coconut oil and honey) to produce delicious flapjacks that are crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. They are bursting with vitamins, minerals, omega 3 and soluble fibre and are a great source of protein (5-10g per bar depending on how many slices you cut them in to!).
Check out the video above for how to make this delicious recipe!
- 1 cup (90g) rolled oats*
- 1 scoop (25g) protein powder**
- 1/2 cup (40g) unsweetened desiccated coconut***
- 1/3 cup (35g) milled flax seeds***
- 1/3 cup (45g) mixed seeds
- 1 slightly heaped cup (130g) dates
- 2 tbsp coconut oil***
- 3 tbsp honey/maple syrup (vegan)
- 1 tsp vanilla/cinnamon/cocoa
- dark chocolate (for decoration)
*To make this recipe gluten free use gluten-free oats.
***I got my Coconut oil, Desiccated Coconut & Milled Flax Seeds (also known as ground linseeds) from Holland & Barrett.
Pre-heat your oven to 175C (350F) and add all of the dry ingredients into a food processor & blitz for a few minutes until 90% of the dates have been broken up into tiny pieces
Pour the dry ingredients into a bowl and melt the honey & coconut oil in the microwave for a minute, stir and add to the dry ingredients
Mix until all of the dry ingredients are coated with the oil & honey before pouring into a greased baking tray (or I lined mine with baking paper)
Press the mixture down firmly all over so that the mixture is packed together tightly before baking for 20 minutes
Allow the flapjack to cool in the tin before transferring to the fridge for 4-5 hours. You'll then be able to slice the bars into 6-12 pieces before dipping them into melted dark chocolate and popping them back in to the fridge to set
*Made with fewer dates (4 dates plus 3 dried apricots plus raisins & sultanas instead of the remaining date weight), chia seeds instead of flax & agave plus honey!
*Made without protein powder or coconut flakes plus extra apricots & veg oil instead of coconut oil!
*My black-bean chocolate cookies also make an appearance!
*At the top are my sweet potato protein brownies!
