Let’s be honest – pounding back whey protein shakes can get a little bit old, particularly if you’re on 3 or 4 a day to meet those pesky macro targets. The same goes for chicken, lean beef and all the other high-protein staples that are the cornerstone of any weightlifter’s diet.
Fortunately there are more than a few ways to sneak more protein into your diet that are a little tastier than lean meats and shakes. One of our favourites is protein flapjacks – tasty, simple to make and they pack a pretty mean protein punch!
If we’re honest, we’re not exactly the best in the kitchen, so we’ve collected some of the best healthy high protein flapjack recipes from around the internet and compiled them in a handy list. Here you’ll learn how to make protein flapjacks, get some healthy protein flapjack ideas and hopefully get some inspiration for your own recipes!
Ripped Recipes – Chocolate and Peanut Butter
This is a really simple recipe that uses just 4 ingredients – oats, vanilla almond milk, peanut butter and whey. Mix a cup and a half of oats, half a cup of the almond milk, 8 tablespoons of peanut butter (get the real stuff, not the sugar filled crap!) and 60g of chocolate whey. Mix it together, pop it it the fridge to let it set and slice it up when it’s solid.
Ripped recipes have a ton of great fit meals and it’s well worth visiting their site for some food inspiration!
Nic’s Recipes Flapjack
There’s a little more to this one, but it’s packed with a ton of healthy ingredients like flaxseed, dates and coconut oil. These require 20 minutes in the oven as well as a decent cooling off period, but they’re worth the extra effort! They’re also pretty flexible, and there’s a few alternative suggestions towards the bottom of the page.
You can find the full recipe here, or watch the video below.

Protein Pow Peanut Butter Flapjacks
Another fairly straightforward recipe with only a handful of ingredients. The addition of cocoa, honey and eggs makes them nice and chewy, and the vanilla whey works really well. Very sweet, but very tasty – full recipe here.
Perfect for those that aren’t big chocolate fans, these flapjacks incorporate flaxseed, almonds, quinoa and coconut oil for a fantastic nutty flavour that’s packed with protein. Baking them is optional, I’ve not attempted the baked version yet but it should help make them that little bit crunchier. Full recipe here.
Health Specific Flapjacks
Another simple but tasty recipe from Luke Armour of Health Specific. You can get the recipe on the youtube video, or visit his Facebook page here.
