After workouts, I usually have the serious munchies. Like, I could probably eat half a pizza and polish off a box of Girl Scout cookies. That feeling is totally normal after working out! You just worked off calories and energy, so now your body is craving more. Here is a healthy take on a yummy snack: protein rice crispy treats! They are a great easy snack to take with you and eat on your way home from the gym to keep you from grabbing the first morsel of food you see when you get home.
- 1/3 cup vanilla protein powder
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 drop butterscotch flavor
- 2 drops marshmallow root extract
- 1 cup protein marshmallow fluff (recipe here http://www.rippedrecipes.com/recipe/protein-marshmallow-fluff-3368.html)
- 1-2 cups crispy brown rice cereal
Mix the protein powder and water until it is smooth. Add the butterscotch and marshmallow flavors, then mix well. Fold in the marshmallow fluff, then fold in the cereal. Make sure they are mixed well, then press the mixture into a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze them for about an hour to make them harden, then cut into pieces and eat up! Store them in the freezer in a Ziploc bag for easy snacking.
These treats are so much better for you than regular rice crispy treats. They satisfy your sweet tooth and your protein intake, all at once!
