Enjoy Post-Workout Deliciousness With These Pomegranate Banana Quesadillas With Almond Butter

Loaded with potassium-rich bananas, high-protein almond butter, and fresh pomegranate, this easy post-match/workout snack comes together in just minutes.

It’s always a good time to grab some protein after a match or workout, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a protein drink. There are plenty of easy to make food options that have the protein your sore muscles need to recover. And these breakfast-y quesadillas have just that!

I whipped these up one day after a morning run because the flavors sounded yummy, and because that’s pretty much all that I had for snacking (I hate grocery shopping, lol!)

Y’all really need to try this. The warm banana and almond butter practically melt in your mouth… mmmmmm! I can almost taste it right now!

I used whole wheat tortillas, but you could use regular flour, corn or a gluten-free variation if you want. Just FYI – the whole wheat version adds 6 grams protein per tortilla, and they taste great!

The next time you’re wanting a snack that’s healthy, is fiber, potassium, protein-packed, and naturally sweetened, make these Pomegranate Banana Quesadillas with Almond Butter!
