Do you want to eat flapjacks and stay lean? We’re not sure it’s possible. What is possible, however, is having a lean flapjack from MyProtein. Is it worth it at all? We’re afraid we haven’t got good news here.
All right, we were joking. You can still eat flapjacks even every day and stay lean. How is this possible? Give Kaz z shout and she will tell you how to do that. Most likely she won’t recommend this specific one. But there are some that may be to your liking. Like PhD’s SmartJack Apple Crumble one. How about the one from MyProtein we’re about to review? Well, we don’t think it’s the best choice. Although it definitely has its strong points.
One of them is not its smell for sure. It’s supposed to have banoffee scent, but it’s pretty far from there. Of course, you can detect a lot of toffee aroma. And only a bit of banana too. But it lacks overall intensity and pleasant smell. It’s not too bad, but it’s
Let put us this way: it’s not what we have expected.
Instead of banoffee taste, we get a feeling of slightly burnt toffee. And just a bit of banana. And that’s it. That composition leaves much to be desired. And although there’s not bitterish aroma or aftertaste, it’s still somehow distressing. If you ever baked something that turned out to be not what it was supposed to be in the term of taste, then that’s what we’ve got here. And believe us, as Pako pretty often bakes and creates some strange smells and tastes (says Kaz).
Although there’s not bitterish aroma or aftertaste, its taste is still somehow distressing.
Do we want another serving after the first one? Well, not actually. As Pako can bin the whole baking he doesn’t like, that we would do the same in this case. Therefore, one serving is more than enough for us.
It’s getting more interesting when it comes to this flapjack’s macros. It is really slim. Or lean. A 50g bar has only 155 kcal, amazingly low 1.7g of fat, 24g of carbs (of which
Can it be a sustainable protein flapjack on the go? Not actually, as it’s pretty far from being tasty.
Lean flapjack. With lean calories. And lean smell. And lean taste. And…
This flapjack is far from being what you’d expect from a regular flapjack. Maybe because it’s not a regular one? Never mind. Although MyProtein’s Lean Flapjack is lean indeed, it also lacks some key features like fatty-ish texture and taste. And although other aspects are not bad here, especially its macros and ingredients, we’re afraid it’s still too much (or too less, depending on your view) to convince us to that treat.
Will we ever go back to this protein flapjack? We don’t think so. As it’s definitely not a tasty and satisfying, sweet treat.
