There is nothing that satisfies my appetite after a long run than a big load of carbohydrates!
A couple of years ago, I came across a banana bread recipe from Athlete Food. It looked super easy and yummy. I wanted to make the recipe a bit healthier than it showed, I substituted some of the original ingredients for cleaner options.
click here is the original recipe.
I hope you enjoy this banana bread! My girls eat this so well! We like to warm it up in the microwave, spread a little butter over it and slap on some natural peanut butter!
If you have been on here at all you know I like short, sweet and to the point. That goes for my recipes as well. I like easy ingredients and easy to make. This chicken salad is just that! It takes no time to mix up and enjoy.
I am also a guesstimator. I make a lot of recipes just by guessing on the amounts. I have given amounts on these ingredients but just know you may have to add more or less of something!
This salad can be stored in an air tight container and refrigerated for a few days. It tends to be even better the day after you make it. The flavors have time to soak in!
They are fast!
They are easy!
Kids love them!
Adults loves them!
Energy balls are one of the best grab and go snacks. I make them all the time and they never last more than two days. I use them for pre-run breakfast, post-run fuel and mid-afternoon snack. They are made with all natural ingredients, no preservatives and sugar only from honey!

A few notes on the ingredients:
Ground Flaxseed: This can be found, usually in the same aisle with flour and baking times. Flaxseed is a wonderful and easy way to add fiber to your diet.
Smuckers All Natural Peanut butter; I have used this for years. I has no sugar just peanuts and salt.
Truvani Protien Powder: Truvani Powder is one that I have used for over a year. It is all natural and there are only five to six ingredients listed in it. You know exactly what you are eating and the flavor is wonderful. But, you can use any protein powder of your choosing for this recipe.
