“What can i snack on between meal times or after training”
I’ve been asked this question a few times over the last week, so i thought i would share a secret recipe….
My wife’s (sofia_rebornpt, onourdoorstep.wordpress.com) gorgeous homemade coconut & peanut butter protein flapjacks..believe me these are AWESOME.
We eat these flapjacks to keep my metabolism fired up, our dietary protein content nice and high, and they also help to fend off those chocolate cravings we all get now and then. They have a good balance between carbohydrate and protein, and are great between meals, however especially great after training.
Be warned though, these are super moorish….once you take a bite, you’ll be wanting more and more.
Ok so here goes:…
100 grams Rolled oats
100 grams Organic peanut butter
200 grams Whey protein
20 grams Honey
150 ml Skimmed milk
1 Tbsp organic coconut oil
Mix the dry ingredients together, melt the peanut butter with milk and honey in the saucepan for a minute until melted and then mix with the dry ingredients. Put the mixture into the baking tin & press flat.
then add on the top: raisins, cherries, seeds, nuts etc to taste!!! YUM
Bake at 175 °C (Gas Mark 4) for 25 to 30 minutes. Warning: the timing is tolerant but accuracy in temperature is critical.
Slice into chunks and now leave to cool and set…..stop nibbling!!!
