No Bake Post Workout Bar

No Bake Post Workout Bar

If like me you find yourself staving after exercise but don`t want to ruin all your hard work on biscuits and crisps, here is a delicious post workout (or any time of day) snack , 4 ingredients and no baking required !.  When we work out and undertake exercise, our muscles use up their glycogen stores for fuel. This results in muscles being partially depleted of glycogen.  Some of the proteins in your muscles also get broken down and damage.  Eating the correct nutrients after exercise will help your body repair itself, and quickly.

Doing this helps your body:

Decrease muscle protein breakdown.
Increase muscle protein synthesis (growth).
Restore glycogen stores.
Enhance recovery.
