Protein Flapjack Recipe

Ready for another kick-ass recipe from my kitchen?

I realized I hadn’t posted a recipe article in a while, so I took to my kitchen yesterday to create another muscle-fueling dish!

This time I had my sights set on flapjacks.

After a little trial and error I created amazing tasting high protein flapjacks!

High Protein Flapjack Recipe

Here’s a list of the ingredients you’re going to need:

  • Oats
  • Whey Protein
  • Flaxseed
  • Quinoa
  • Flaked Almonds
  • Natural Peanut Butter
  • Coconut Oil
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Zero Calorie Sweetener like stevia, splenda, xylitol and so on.

You can use butter if you haven’t got coconut oil. The cheapest coconut oil you can get in Europe/UK is from MyProtein – Coconpure. Same goes for Natural Peanut Butter. You can get a massive 1kg tub for £4.49.

If you’re in the US, I highly recommend Barlean’s Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.

I Get My Flaked Almonds & Quinoa From Tesco

How To Make Them

This will make 8 flapjacks or 4 massive ones. Put all your dry ingredients in a large bowl in the following quantities:

  • About 165g of Whey (at 90% protein, this will deliver about 150g protein) – I used unflavored whey from MyProtein
  • 70g/2.5oz Oats
  • 50g/1.75oz Quinoa – yes, uncooked quinoa
  • 30g/1oz Flaxseed
  • 20g/0.75oz Flaked Almonds

Put your liquid ingredients into a separate bowl in the following quantities:

  • 70g/2.5oz Melted Coconut Oil
  • 120g/4oz Natural Peanut Butter
  • Sweetener of your choice. I used a few squirts of liquid stevia. If you’re using splenda, add a few tablespoons.
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

The Mix Before Cooking - It's Tastes Good!

Now add your liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and give it a good mix.

If it’s too dry to bind together, add a max of 50ml/3 tablespoons of water to moisten it a little.

Now, before you go any further, get your finger in there and taste it. How good is that?!


I cooked my batch, but I I think you might want to try just leaving them in the fridge to cool and set. Some of you guys should try it and let us all know how they turn out. I imagine they’d taste even better that way.

If you want to cook them, put some baking paper on a baking tray and empty the mix onto the tray. Flatten it out on the tray and place in the oven at 190c/370f/gas mark 5 for 15-20 minutes.

After Cooking. But Try Just Letting Them Set Without Cooking


For the total batch the nutritional info is:

  • 2749 Calories
  • 208g Protein
  • 161g Fat
  • 117g Net Carbs (minus fiber for those of you in the US)

Cut into 8 servings, you’ll get:

~342 Calories

26g Protein

20g Fat

14.5g Carbs

If you want to have these as an actual meal replacement, you could cut the batch in 4 for a massive 52g of protein per serving.

If you’re worried that any more than 30g of protein per serving is wasted and not used by the body, read my article “How Much Protein can the Body Absorb in One Sitting?“.

While I don’t know what the exact glycemic load of these are, they are definitely under 15GLs for all you GLAD dieters, so enjoy them!

With these nutritional values they wouldn’t be a great choice for the MANS diet, but can easily be incorporated into Total Six Pack Abs. 😀



P.S. You can of course use flavored protein for different tastes. Chocolate’s gotta good!

    Hi Mark,

    @Ola. I bought my stevia a long time ago so I’m not 100% sure. It’s by Swanson. I might have bought it on ebay. Search for Swanson Liquid Stevia there.
    @Richard. You mean my books or supplements from MyProtein? If it’s the supps, they don’t deliver to the US. That’s why I put suitable US alternatives in the post. My recommended protein for US readers is in the sidebar too.
