YUM! Homemade Post Workout Granola Bars with only 146 calories, with 7 g of protein, 3 g of fiber!
Searching for a portable, clean, high protein snack to eat after a workout or on the go, I could not find a low sugar, high protein granola bar recipe. I found a few recipes and made them to my liking but felt like they were too heavy or not sweet enough. I decided to try making my own and after 3 attempts, have finally created a keeper. It has a perfect 3:1 carb to protein ratio frequently recommended to have after a strength workout.
Cherries. In season and delicious. I had some of these with greek yogurt today after my run for some post workout nutrition. Make sure to have some good carbs (cherries) with some protein (greek yogurt). Cherries are also amazing for recovery.
How did I put the cherries in the yogurt sans pit? Like the classy broad that I am, one at a time I placed one in my mouth. Sucked out the pit and spit the two halves into the bowl.
