Battle Oats sent me one of their new cherry bakewell bars to try. I have to admit that I’m not a massive cherry bakewell fan but agreed to try it with my partner in crime, Con who is allergic to nuts. Despite being cherry bakewell, the bar does not contain almonds!
On opening I was slightly worried that the bar looked a bit dry but to my pleasure, the flapjack softly crumbled when I bit into it. I was surprised when I actually really enjoyed the flavour. The cherry and almond were perfectly balanced and the sickly marzipan-like taste which I hate was absent. The bar has chunks of white chocolate and cherry but these were rare to find in the bar – where dem chunks at?!

I think that the white chocolate coconut Battle Oats is still my favourite but if you like cherry bakewell then give these a try! The macros aren’t the best if you’re focusing purely on protein content but are perfect for a balanced fuel. I just wish that there were more chunks!
