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!

My name is Lauren and I'm the creator of Inspire Me, Gluten Free! I'm here to help YOU get more comfortable in the kitchen! How? Great question; with the art of meal prepping! I'm not talking the boring prep that leaves you wanting more halfway into the week. I plan delicious versions of classic and unique gluten-free meals. Originally, I started meal prepping as a means to manage my budget and my waist line. What I didn't realize was just how much money I was saving monthly, because I was buying less and wasn't wasting money on unused or spoiled food. Choosing fresh ingredients helped me consistently lose 1-2 pounds a week. I had more time in the mornings/evenings, because I wasn't having to cook during the work week. All of these benefits made a world of difference in my life and they can do the same for YOU!
