Establishing healthy eating habits at home is a key component in improving your on-ice performance. Feeding your body with the fuel needed for every shift will help you seamlessly transition back to the ice when the time comes. Every Tuesday, nutritionist Seanna Thomas will be bringing you recipes and nutrition tips via the GTHL Instagram that will help to build healthy routines. For Tuesday, September 8 Seanna will be making a Power Pucks – the perfect post-game snack. You’ll need:
Three Ingredient Performance Cookies:
2 ripe bananas
2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup add-in (chocolate chips, coconut, hemp hearts, etc)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Peel and mash bananas in a large bowl. Add oats and mix until well combined. Mix in your add-in, if using. Scoop a tablespoon of mixture at a time into hands and press into a cookie shape. Place on a parchment paper covered baking sheet. Bake for 10-14 minutes, until bottoms are slightly browned. Let cool and pack for the perfect pre-game or post-game fuel!
Makes 12-15 cookies.
