I love flapjacks, but shop-bought ones are often laden with huge amounts of refined sugar, bad fats and contain paltry portions of nuts and seeds. Here is a simple, quick no-bake recipe which is much tastier, healthier and crammed with goodness.

You wont want shop-bought anymore after tasting these! I love to make a batch on Sunday and chill them in the fridge so I have healthy snacks throughout the working week. These quick and easy protein flapjacks will satisfy your cravings, stave off the guilt and give you a protein hit all in one fell swoop. All sweet treats don’t need to be saved for your cheat day.

They make a great morning breakfast bar, a healthy addition to packed lunch boxes, a sustaining afternoon snack and are great as pre-work out energy bar
