This superbly healthy guilt-free snack can be eaten any time you need a quick boost of energy. Free of processed sugar, full of healthy carbs and a pinch of protein, it also makes a fantastic pre-work out food and is a great take-along treat to pack before dashing out to a busy day.
- 1.5 lbs sweet potatoes (about 2 medium)
- 1/2 cup brewer’s yeast (60g protein)
- 1/4 cup almond meal
- 1 plantain
- 1 cup firm packed kale (cooked or raw)
- 1 cup lose packed fresh cilantro
- 3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 375°.
Scrub potatoes and give each side a few jabs with a fork before placing in microwave to cook until soft – about 5 or 6 minutes turning them half way through.
When done, trim ends but do not peel. Slice and add with rest of ingredients to food processor.
Blend until everything is mixed thoroughly and of an even consistency.
Drop batter by tablespoon-fulls onto a parchment lined or lightly greased baking sheet. Place in oven and bake for approximately 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
These will keep a week or so in the fridge and will travel well with you as a snack to have on hand during the day when you need it.
