After you’ve worked out you probably want to eat something. When I worked at a gym in London one of the favorite “pick me up- snacks” after a workout for most clients was flapjacks.
But I am not talking about these sugar loaded delicious things that is suppose to be healthy that you buy in the shop. I am talking about fiber and vitamin loaded flapjacks.
I asked Jean, the wonderful lady who made them, for a recipe but she always found a way of not telling me. Obviously leaving me curious and as I like to cook I decided to make my own ones using her guidelines.
I cannot give the exact measurements as I’ve actually never measured because I usually go on how much I feel like making that day.
I will give you guidelines but depending on your taste you have to add or remove what you don’t like.
Fruity Flapjacks makes 10-15 medium ones.
Dates/raisins ½ cup
Flax seeds 1-2 table spoons
Sesame seeds 1-2 table spoons
Oil 1-2 table spoons
Mash the bananas and chop the apples and dates/raisins (nuts). Mix with remaining ingredients. If it’s too dry add some more oil or you can add apple juice.
Makes 10-15 small/medium flapjacks. Use your hands to form to small balls, flatten a little and bake at 175degrees, gas mark 4, for about 10-15minutes until golden brown.
Let cool and store in an air-tight container. Eat the same day.
Note that there is NO sugar in these flapjacks, they are naturally sweet and tasty and low in fat. And they are delicious!
Hope you give them a try and report here afterwards!
