Post-Workout Snack: Pumpkin Blueberry Granola

by Angela Becker

Everyone is different when it comes to their snacks. In general, my snack…

  • Must be filling enough to tie over to the next meal
  • Gives me energy
  • Tasty
  • Easy to put together

One day, I needed a snack after a workout. This is what I had in my pantry

¼ cup Pumpkin & Flaxseed granola

1 TBSP almond butter

1 TBSP hemp seeds

½ oz Dry Roasted Unsalted Peanuts

¼ cup Blueberries

One bowl is about 250 Calories, Total Fat: 24.4 g, Total Carbs: 27.5 g Total Sugar: 11.1 g, Fiber: 6.5 g, Protein: 13 g

 These are approximate values since I did not use measuring cups.

I enjoyed the crunchy-creamy combination from the granola and almond butter. Blueberries added sweetness. Hemp seeds and peanuts added good sources of fat and protein. Milk would be good if you want to loosen the almond butter.
