I was looking for some soup the other day in Tesco and saw some protein bars by TREK (or Natural Balance Foods) and thought I'd try them out and see what they were like.
Similar to Nákd (as it is the same company) many of the products are wheat, dairy and gluten free. The bars provide around 9-10g of protein and are vegan. The protein also helps to keep you fuller for longer and stop you snacking on unhealthy foods.
So let us begin ...
TREK Banana Bread Protein Flapjack
I have to be honest - I'm a big banana bread fan - well anything baked and with a banana in it - and I'm sold. Banana is such a good ingredient and I loved it in this flapjack. I'm trying to find a good recipe for 'banana flapjacks' at the moment. This banana flapjack is very tasteful and you can taste the banana - its overpowering - but a good kind of overpowering.
TREK Cocoa Coconut Protein Flapjack
I was quite surprised when I opened the packaging as I thought it would be a chocolate flapjack and not a chocolate covered flapjack - anyhow this wasn't a bad thing. You can definitely taste the coconut and the chocolate topping is different and a change.
TREK Cocoa Oat Protein Flapjack
Again another chocolate covered flapjack - which I started to enjoy ... I think it was because I wasn't used to them which is why I felt weird/odd when I first saw it. This one is very chocolatey and tasted really good.
TREK Original Oat Protein Flapjack
Everyone loves a simple flapjack! Plain and simple ... Somedays I love a 'plain day' and so this is a great flapjack.
That's the four I tried ... let me know if you have ever tried this brand/make in the comments below.
