Recipe — Protein flapjacks.
So as I work full time I find it difficult to fit a good meal in before I train in the evening, and obviously the best thing to snack on is something carb loaded.
I've experimented a few times with healthy flapjacks bit because I don't like bananas or peanut butter I couldn't seem to find a recipe that I'd like. So after a lot of trial and error and I think I've found the perfect combination... Here it is. This is more of a baked, cake-like flapjack so it's really satisfying and good to throw down before you head to the gym.
Makes 8 flapjacks
2 cups of oats
2 scoops of protein (I've found that My Protein's rhubarb and custard makes this taste like crumble)
1 scoop of chia seeds
1 scoop of goji berries
1 cup of almond milk
2 tbsp of honey
2 scoops of flaked almonds
1 tbsp coconut oil
This recipe couldn't be easier. Just dump all your dry ingredients into a bowl and mix until combined. Microwave your coconut oil and honey for about 20 seconds until it's all melted and easy to stir in to your mixture. Add this and the almond milk until it's a little sticky but not too much. Pour the mixture into a small roasting tin or cake tin, and bake for 20 minutes at 180 degrees.
Take out, leave to cool, cut into squares and wrap ready to eat during the week! Snack prep at its easiest. I throw one of these in my bag every day and eat it before I set off from work, well worth the half hour on a Sunday.
