I love food, and I’ve grown to love fitness. One came naturally and the other one took it’s sweet time to develop, and I’m sure you can guess which.
I made these protein snacks to unite both, to enjoy a slice
or two after a workout, or even as a dessert. I tend to not eat too much before I workout as my digestion always kicks up a fuss if I gym with even the slightest piece of food, so I always need to make sure I either eat at least two hours before or go on an empty stomach. I know people who can eat minutes before going to the gym – I am not one of them. Sigh.
These protein snack slices are pillow-y soft and cake-like. They are speckled with rich dark chocolate, which means that my brain is not sure whether I’m eating dessert or having a post-workout snack. It’s glorious.
If you want to take it further and add some nuts, or substitute the chocolate for some nuts, it definitley works as well. Protein snacks call for fun things to be added to them, because no one wants a boring snack, protein or otherwise. Time to stop having boring food after workouts once and for all!
