It’s going to be a real battle for Cookie Monsters. Because this Battle Oats Cookies & Cream protein flapjack is nothing worth Monsters’ attention.
Cookies & Cream flavour is a tricky one. As a flavour, it’s highly palatable and I could eat Oreo biscuits one by one. And these are a great example of this flavour. However, it’s not too easy to prepare protein-anything in this flavour. Just have a look at our reviews of Cookies & Cream anything. There’s only one protein bar that scored 7/10 pts, PhD SmartBar. And only another one that scored 6.6/10 pts, SuperFit Protein Fresh Bar. Also, we’ve never reviewed protein flapjack of this flavour. So you can have an idea what kind of challenge it is. Therefore, I’m more than happy to review Battle Oats Protein Flapjack Cookies & Cream now. Let’s go!
Aaaaand… here it is! A protein flapjack that smells with vanilla flavour and that specific oaty scent. Both are detectable, but I wouldn’t want to have that ‘oaty’ aroma here. At the same time, I’d like vanilla flavour to be much more intense. But it’s not. So it’s not too appealing or inviting. Furthermore, a pretty softish flapjack is comfortable enough to eat, so no problem with biting into it and chewing. More than that, it’s only slightly chewy and sticks to the teeth a bit. And it’s a bit dryish too, so a sip while eating it may come in handy. How about the taste then? It’s far from being perfect.
This Battle Oats protein flapjack is not worth the love of Cookie(s & Cream) Monsters.
The composition of this flapjack affects its taste. There are white chocolate chunks and soy protein nuggets on the top. The first one of them is detectable, being somewhat sweet, but it lacks its intense. Another one, soy protein nuggets, are basically tasteless, making here a kind of crunchy effect only. Therefore, the top of this protein flapjack tastes less than more like Cookies & Cream flavour. Going further, the interior of this snack is filled, obviously, with gluten-free oats and the same flavourless soy protein nuggets. As a result of that, the top of this flapjack is middling flavourish, but its interior is nearly tasteless. Or it tastes more like
Do I want another serving after the first one? Not actually. Honestly, I felt no enjoyment at all eating this protein flapjack.
Battle Oats flapjacks are just OK when it comes to their macros. This one weighs 70g and it has 270 kcal. There’s also 9.8g of fat, 28g of carbs (including 5.6g of sugar) and not that bad 15.4g of protein. However, the ingredients list contains glucose syrup.
This is not Cookies & Cream flavour I’d want to come back to.
Battle Oats Protein Flapjack Cookies & Cream is slightly disappointing. It doesn’t smell like that, it doesn’t taste like that, it’s a bit dryish, it has not good ingredients… And this, and that. And all of that is pretty far from the Cookies & Cream flavour all Cookie Monsters know. Therefore, you won’t lose anything if you skip it and eat a couple of Oreo biscuits instead.
Will I ever go back to this protein flapjack? I’d love to, as I’m a pretty big fan of Cookies & Cream flavour. But it’s so hard for me to love this protein flapjack though. So most likely I won’t. The same as this one from this range.
