Pancakes after a workout? Yep! Ultra-runner Sage Canaday eats these tasty flapjacks to recover faster – and we can too!
Cook Your Post-Workout Food Before Hitting the Gym
Ever reach for cookies (or chips) after a healthy workout?
Maybe you don’t.
For the rest of us, poor post-workout food choices not only sabotage our efforts to stay fit, but the lack of nutrition can also make us feel lethargic the next day when we SHOULD feel energized.
Making pancakes from scratch after a good workout may not be the most appealing option.
But the great thing about pancakes is you can make a bunch ahead of time and freeze them.
Blend, Cook, Drizzle with Syrup!
The ingredients you need to make the batter for these tasty oatmeal pancakes are ones you likely already have if you bake. Simply blend them in a blender like an oatmeal smoothie.
The fiber-rich pancake batter is 10x more nutritious than using a mix from a box.
And, even though these Oatmeal Banana Pancakes are “good for you”, they still taste amazing topped with maple syrup and fresh berries!
And really, what could taste better than a stack of pancakes after a good workout?
