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.

Dig in to these Oatmeal-Banana Pancakes after a workout to help you body recover faster.

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.
