That’s the protein flapjack for gluten-free people. And if you’re not one of them, then it may be a battle for yourself to consider it a good one. But still, it’s good it’s here, so we all have an option, right?
Gluten-free protein flapjacks is a growing part of the market. More and more snacks of this kind are available out there. We have already reviewed a couple of them, like TREK Original Oats, TREK Oat Raisin, Battle Oats Cherry Bakewell or Battle Oats White Choc Coconut. And although I’m not the greatest fan of gluten-free anything (because I don’t have to), I’m glad they’re available for those who need them. And I’m glad I can review them too. So how about this one?
There’s nothing wrong in the matter of the taste of this protein flapjack. There’s oats aroma easily detectable, on a par with dark choc chips. However, the latter could be much more intense. It’s not too bad, but it lacks that solid kick of scent. Anyway, a pretty soft snack is easy to bite into it. Also, it’s just a bit chewy and only barely tries to stick to your teeth. Therefore, you should easily eat it at once without any sip. Oh, it’s a bit crumbly, but you can eat it over your keyboard with no problem.
Considering it’s a gluten-free snack, it may affect somehow its taste. And it does.
There are oats easily noticeable and it seems like they have had grabbed a majority of the flavour here. Also, they taste that specific way of gluten-free ones. For #glutenteam people, it may be something difficult to accept or consider it tasty. Anyway, there are dark choc chips too, but I totally wouldn’t mind if there were much more of them. Eventually, that protein flapjack it somewhat crumbly, lacking that specific heavy and thick texture of flapjacks. And last, but not least, it’s far from being sweet and satisfying protein snack.
Do I want another serving after the first one? Well, not actually. And I don’t mind it’s gluten-free or not. It’s just far from being fulfilling, so nope. One serving of this is more than enough for me.
A quick look at macros and here’s what we’ve got. A 70g flapjack has 269 kcal, 9.8g of fat, 27.3g of carbs (of which 5.6g of sugar) and not too bad 15.3g of protein. An ingredients list is not too long and it doesn’t contain palm fat. There’s, however, a glucose syrup, but it’s not a big issue when it comes to flapjacks.
Anyway, it’s still can’t be considered a ‘sustainable protein flapjack on the go.
The Battle for #glutenteam people
Battle Oats Dark Choc Chip Protein Flapjack is not too bad. It’s a good option for gluten-free people, as they’ve got their specific needs. And that protein snacks should meet them easily, as it’s pretty good in other-than-the-taste aspects. For #glutenteam it may be, however, not the best option, as it tastes in that specific, gluten-free way.
Will I ever go back to this protein flapjack? Not actually. I’m #glutenteam and for me, it’s not too tasty, not too sweet, neither satisfying and fulfilling.
