I know people don’t really like too much pre-amble whilst searching for a new recipe, but before I share this Banana Flapjack Bake. I want to share a short story on how this recipe came to life. I recently purchased a multi-pack of “Salted Caramel Almond Oats” and got myself ready for a taste sensation. Only to be left pondering if the package might have somehow, been mislabelled or I was grossly miss-sold. ⠀
Of course, I will never waste food, so I stormed through the whole experience like the absolute trooper that I am. But it reminded me of a small, yet highly valuable lesson – Life really is too short for a bad breakfast. So, with this in mind, I created this lovingly simply, yet delicious breakfast bake and all of a sudden, everything was good with the world again.
~Banana Flapjack Bake~
(Serves 4 or 2 ) ⠀
One ripe Banana⠀
60g Protein Powder (I use Myprotein)⠀
30g Almond Or Peanut Butter⠀
Sprinkle of ginger & cinnamon⠀
1 Flax egg (or normal egg)⠀
20g Chia Seeds⠀
120-160ml water (See notes)⠀
Start by blending the banana, protein powder & water – Start steady with the water as we’re looking for a really thick/dense mix. ⠀
Then. in a large bowl, mix in the oats, spice, chia & “egg” – Now pour in the wet mix & combine until you have a smooth batter. Add in the nut butter & combine again, pour into a lined tin & refrigerate for an hour. ⠀
Now, oven bake at 180 degrees & bake for around 20-25 minutes (until the top is golden brown). Allow to cool & slice into 4 & serve. Best stored in the fridge & freezes well too! ⠀
