High protein flapjack for breakfast! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day: breaking your nightly fast, properly refueling your body with nutrients and speeding up your metabolism. Unfortunately, not all people have a good appetite in the morning. What happens when you they tend not to eat until lunch time, is the risk of munching on bad stuff at 4 o’clock and overeating. Therefore it is better to really try to eat something proper in the morning.

To make this more easy, I came up with a sweet ovo vegetarian flapjack recipe that is completely clean, healthy, additives-free, sugar-free* (perfect for diabetics!), lactose- and caseine-free, full of nutrients like vitamins, minerals, protein and healthy fatty acids. Moreover, they are low carb and will keep you satisfied until lunch at least.

 

Coconut flour

I made this flapjack with coconut flour (Aman Prana, sold at VitaminStore). I can’t emphasize enough on the great benefits of coconut flour. Here are just some of them:

 

  • it has the highest percentage dietary fibre of all flours (58%)
  • low on carbohydrates
  • gluten-free
  • a great source of protein
  • rich in omega-3 fatty acids
  • anti-inflammatory
  • anti-fungal
  • treats candida
  • stimulates digestion
  • promotes absorption of vitamins and minerals

 

Vegan, clean, non-GMO protein powder

I furthermore used protein powder, which has a great protein/kcal ratio. The cleanest, highest quality protein powder you can get is Sun Warrior brown rice protein powder, which is vegan, organic and non-GMO (non-genetically modified organism). Vanilla flavor is my favorite to use in smoothies, pancakes, desserts etc., but there’s also chocolate flavor, for instance.
