We have all been there. Had a great workout and soon after we are ready to eat up the whole kitchen. I call this workout hunger, it is a common occurrence and a big reason that weight and fat loss can stall. When we get that hungry our survival instincts take over and instead of searching for the best thing we just search for anything that will fill us up (seriously, who searches for fruit when they are hangry LOL?). Letting the body get to that point can cause metabolisms to adjust downward, decrease muscle mass, increase recovery time, etc.
This recipe is super versatile, I have included the veggies I used but you can use whatever you have and like. Brussels sprouts, asparagus, mushrooms, and cauliflower are also great options!
Anyone looking for an easy, yummy snack to make? Here’s how you make the cafe’s peanut honey granola bars.

½ cup honey
½ cup crunchy peanut butter
