High-Protein Banana Peanut Butter Snack

Banana and Peanut Butter Get a High-Protein Makeover

For a pre- or post-workout snack, banana smeared with peanut butter couldn't be easier. The banana offers quick carbs, and the peanut butter offers a little protein — it's a match made in snack heaven.

If you eat half a medium banana (53 calories) with one tablespoon of peanut butter (95 calories), it only offers 4.6 grams of protein. That's not much if you're looking to fuel your muscles after an intense workout. Here's an easy way to increase the protein to 13.6 grams, and it's only 158 calories.
