Jocelyn's new snack inventions

16th June 2017 by Jocelyn

Our famous flapjacks are made with the finest British rolled oats and are hand baked in small batches, to make a flapjack that tastes genuinely homemade. Our taste expert Jocelyn took the classic recipe into the graze labs, adding innovative ingredients to craft these brand new flapjacks.

We love experimenting with new flavours in our famous flapjack recipe! And since the success of our protein flapjacks, we thought we’d try adding some of our favourite new ingredients - ancient grain quinoa, superfood maca and baobab.

This brand new flapjack is packed with fruity flavour! We upgraded our traditional recipe with superfood baobab and mixed seeds to create a soft and chewy wholesome bake with the benefits of fibre, protein and manganese.

What makes it taste so good?

We wanted to create a more exotic flapjack that packed a fruity punch, so we teamed up baobab with dried blueberries to give a sweet and chewy addition to the winning recipe.

Sourced from Malawi, baobab is the only fruit in the world that dries on the branch, making a powder that we affectionately refer to as nature’s sherbert. Locals love this superfruit because of it’s natural benefits like potassium and fibre. What better ingredient to give a naturally zingy flavour to this fruity flapjack?

What are the benefits?

Because all our flapjacks are baked in small batches, the whole rolled oats keep all their natural goodness, making this healthy snack a source of fibre and manganese, a nutrient which supports the immune system and protects cells from oxidative stress.

The linseeds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds added to the mixture means this flapjack is a source of essential minerals, fibre and protein. We recommend keeping one in your desk drawer, ready for hanger emergencies.

maca flapjack

We've added mixed seeds and a touch of superfood maca to our famous flapjack recipe, for a wholesome bake that’s a source of fibre, protein and manganese. We think you’re gonna love the caramel flavour from the maca!

What makes it taste so good?

Maca, also called “peruvian ginseng”, is a root superfood used for its energising, hormone balancing and immunity strengthening properties in the Great Incan Empire. It was so valuable they even used it as currency!

Inspired by the recent popularity of Peruvian ingredients, we thought maca, with its soothing caramel-like flavour, would go perfectly in our flapjack recipe.

What are the benefits?

Our taste experts have added soya protein crispies to our classic flapjack recipe, a simple blend of soy protein, rice flour, malt extract and a touch of salt. This is blended and then puffed in a similar way to rice crispies and makes these flapjacks a delicious source of protein.

And now we’ve even gone and upgraded this recipe with Bacillus coagulens, which you might know better as probiotics.

The linseeds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds added to the mixture mean this flapjack is a source of essential minerals, fibre and protein. We recommend popping in your bag for a delicious energy boost on busy days.

cacao quinoa flapjack

Ancient grains are so popular as an ingredient, we couldn’t wait to try them out in one of our flapjack experiments. Add delicious cacao and you’ve got a seriously gooey source of fibre!

What makes it taste so good?

We've added some of our favourite innovative ingredients to the recipe like ancient grains, cacao, and natural vanilla, giving it a rich chocolate flavour and gooey texture.

Quinoa is an ancient grain that originates from the Andean Mountains of Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Columbia, cultivated by the Incas thousands of years ago. We create our quinoa flakes by flattening raw quinoa seeds to create this tasty source of fibre.

Cacao has the chocolate taste of chocolate, but with a richer caramel flavour and more nutritional benefits. Our cacao powder comes from Peruvian cacao beans, which dry out in the heat of the tropical sun before being ground.

What are the benefits?

Because all our flapjacks are baked in small batches, the whole rolled oats keep all their natural goodness, making this healthy snack a source of fibre and manganese, a nutrient which supports the immune system and protects cells from oxidative stress.

The quinoa, cacao powder and cacao nibs added to the mixture mean this flapjack is a source of essential minerals and fibre. We recommend enjoying it with cup of tea or coffee when you take a break from a hectic day.
