Banana Roll-Up

With lots of whole grains and peanut-buttery deliciousness, you really can’t go wrong with this banana roll-up. I just love the peanut-butter and banana combo… I realized this is my fourth post in which this pair comes together though. Oops. I just can’t help myself I guess! But anyways, while the roll-up isn’t necessarily low in calories, the healthy fats, fiber and protein make it very filling and will keep you going for a long time! And of course you can eat just half of one which is only 300 calories. It would make a great breakfast or lunch, and half of one makes the perfect pre- or post-workout snack as well. I used to have these at track meets during high school, and after a race I always looked forward to them. Hope you enjoy!

Double Chocolate Banana Chunk Cookies

So… I was suspicious how a cookie with only four ingredients and no added sugar (besides the chocolate chips of course) could actually taste good. I was mistaken. These are so easy, so good, and so chocolate-y! I don’t know about you, but I am a sucker when it comes to chocolate.  These are moist and chewy and even have a hint of banana flavor too! Yum! You can even try them frozen, I highly recommend it. Oh, and by the way, I did not take this picture… Unfortunately my photography skills are not that good yet. (I could probably use some help haha). But anyways, this recipe is from a blog called EatGood4Life, which is written by a registered dietitian named Miryam. She has lots of other great recipes too, so you should check out the blog if you can! I have provided a link to the cookie recipe for you. You can satisfy your sweet tooth with these healthy cookies at only 60 calories a pop!

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal

Being that this is my first attempt at food photography, my skills are… limited, to say the least. A purple bowl against a purple backdrop (a.k.a. my bed comforter)–who does that? Still, I wanted to share one of my favorite breakfasts. If it weren’t for this oatmeal I am not sure I would have gotten out of bed this morning. Even though there’s only two weeks left in the semester, I feel like I am already checked out. Anyhow, this is easy peasy and quite delicious, so I hope you’ll give it a try at some point!
