Ginger Banana Protein Flapjacks.

Chewy, chunky, soft & simple flapjacks that are high in protein and low in sugar. These golden squares use banana which cuts down the use of additional sugars because we’re all sweet enough right?

The recipes that I’m going to be creating for the foreseeable will use ingredients that you’ll hopefully have at the back of your cupboards. Staples such as golden syrup, butter and oats. These are also super child friendly, so if you’re looking for things to do with your children, why not try re-creating these. You can of course omit/ add in ingredients as you please!

That’s another brilliant thing about flapjacks – you can make them and flavour them as you please. Dark chocolate chips, dried fruits, nuts, even marshmallows – you can pretty much add whatever your taste buds are asking you too! If you’re stuck for inspiration, why not try making my Chocolate Blueberry ones!

I am currently addicted to large flaked oats. Not the quick cook instant ones, but the hearty and chunky kind. They add so much texture especially to flapjacks. With a little syrup, mashed banana, butter and sweetener, these flapjacks come together almost effortlessly.

The toughest part is not eating all of the batter straight from the pan! The mixture is very sticky but this is the desired consistency! Just be sure to spray your baking paper before baking. This particular recipe made 9 relatively large squares but you could make them into bite sized mouthfuls.

Bake these delicious Feel Good Flapjacks until golden and firm before allowing them to cool slightly and serving up. They taste great warm but also at room temperature with a cup of tea.

Why not also serve them as a dessert? Top with a dollop of custard or icecream and you’ve got a super simple healthy after dinner treat for the whole family.

Stay safe, happy and healthy.
