Chia and Hemp Protein Flapjacks

chia and hemp protein flapjacks

chia and hemp protein flapjacksAlong with energy balls, gluten free flapjacks are one of my favourite healthy snack recipes. They are perfect to take to work, to the gym for a post-workout snack or for energy on a long walk!

I love the flavour of hemp protein powder as it has a lovely natural nutty sweetness so does not require as much sweetener when used in recipes. It also provides a subtle green colour to anything recipe it is added to. I find that hemp protein powder is a perfect low FODMAP protein source as it is easily digestible and never causes me any IBS-related symptoms. It contains all known essential amino acids and is a naturally vegan complete protein. I added chia seeds into the recipe to give a little extra texture to the bars. The crunchiness of the little seeds works perfectly with the soft and chewy oats!

If you are a hemp protein powder fan like me then I definitely recommend giving this quick and easy recipe a go. You won’t be disappointed!
