After I began working out consistently, I noticed that my appetite has drastically changed. I am hungrier than I used to be and my caloric needs are different due to the amount of activity I’m doing on a day to day basis. On my workout days, this is a delicious post-workout snack. It takes less than 5 minutes to put together and can be eaten on the go.
Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
1 lightly salted rice cake
1-2 tbsp of peanut butter (I usually use 1 tbsp)
1/4 banana (smashed)
1 pinch/sprinkle of cinnamon powder
1 tsp of cacao nibs
1. Smooth 1-2 tbsp of peanut butter on the rice cake.
2. Carefully smash your banana so that is evenly coats the top of the rice cake. If you are worried about breaking the rice cake, you can smash the banana in a small bowl and then spread it on to the rice cake.
3. Sprinkle a small amount of cinnamon powder of the banana so that it is lightly coated.
4. Sprinkle approx. 1 tsp of cacao nibs on the top for some extra crunch!
All of these flavors meld so well together. I would also argue that this would be an excellent, healthy, low guilt breakfast or dessert option as well!
