Pineapple Banana Cake

Easy Grab-and-go Protein Snack

As a busy working mom, at least two out of six of my meals are in the form of a shake or a pre-made pancake, waffle or loaf. Being able to mix my macronutrients into one grab-and-go simple meal has been helpful in allowing me to maintain my healthy lifestyle while juggling my 2-year-old and newborn. Getting creative, just like with anything, is key to keeping you on track and excited!

I was in the mood for something a bit sweeter, so I picked up a pineapple and came up with this delicious grab-and-go alternative to my everyday protein pancake. One serving is a perfect snack or in-between meal and has just more than 200 calories, 8 grams of good monounsaturated fat, only 10 grams of digestible carbs, 18 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber! This is the perfect in-between meal to keep you going and give you the added boost of higher glycemic carbs to get through your busy days. Give this one a try and let me know what you think!
