Recipe: Banana Roll Ups

When I have certain ingredients in my home, and I want to change things up, I always try and make my own recipes. While I could probably have the same food every single day, especially for breakfast and my pre/post workout snacks, I try and change meals up every now and then, even if it's just changing up the fruit! I noticed I had a few key ingredients to change up my usual breakfast, so I went for it. Banana Roll Ups was created and devoured one ordinary morning. You will most likely have the ingredients on hand at all times, and if you don't there's only THREE ingredients needed to make this delicious, fun-looking breakfast! You can even have this before you workout, at least an hour before to allow your body to digest, or after, paired with a protein shake! It's also a fun way to get your children to eat healthy meals!
