hese healthy flapjacks are perfect for breakfast on the run or anytime of the day when you want a little sustenance and want a healthy low sugar snack option. They are already low sugar but using Natvia or similar will make them even lower in sugar. They are already a great source of protein but if you want to make protein bars, replace the LSA with protein powder.
