Beckie WhiteNutrition & Recipe

Snacking is a necessity, especially after a good workout.  The right snacks will aid in your recovery and help you repair muscle.  Well you can’t eat just any brownie, but healthy snacking’s important, especially after a workout! I’m sharing some of my favorite post workout snacks that provide the right balance of carbs, fats, and protein to satisfy hunger, fuel workouts, and aid in recovery.

Mo-Mentum Protein Cookies

  • 1 scoop Mo -Mentum Fitness protein powder (I like chocolate)

  • 1 Tsbp coconut
  • 1 Tbsp nut butter (sunflower seed butter is also great)
  • 2 Tbsp water  or almond milk to make a paste
Mix ingredients together and Bake @ 300ish for 5 – 7 min on a cookie sheet. Serves 1.
