Whilst working from home, these are such a great staple to have in the kitchen and can be eaten as a quick breakfast with a scoop of yoghurt, mid afternoon when you need a pick me up or warmed up with a little custard for a crummy dessert!
They are a healthy take on the traditional butter and sugar laden flapjack, the scoop of protein helps to balance out the macro-nutrients and the added #liquidgold helps boost their nutritional value!
100g rolled oats
1 scoop (25g) vanilla vegan protein powder - vivolife
30g flax seeds
30g chia seeds
2 tbsp coconut oil
3 tbsp agave nectar
2 tsp LIQGUID GOLD
dark chocolate (for decoration)
Pre-heat your oven to 175C (350F) and add all of the dry ingredients into a bowl.
Put the dates into a bowl and cover with boiling water until soft
melt the agave nectar & coconut oil in the microwave for a minute, stir and add to the dry ingredients
drain the soaked dates and dd them to the mixture
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 drizzling over the melted dark chocolate
