FEEDING GER SASSER -Crossfit/ GRID Athletes like Ger Sasser need big fuel and people were always asking me what I feed Ger, my son. (5 time Crossfit Regionals athlete, San Francisco Fire GRID athlete, and owner/trainer of CROSSFIT COUNTDOWN, along with his wife, Cassie) I love to come up with delicious, simple, mostly paleo diet meal plans and share them, so others can have success in the kitchen. These easy Crossfit diet meal plan recipes can make a big difference in your performance.
I made this batch of healthy treats so quickly I should call them ninja cookies. I imagined the WOD clock – “3…2…1…BEEP”
I put the following ingredients into a large bowl:
2 large ripe bananas 1 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats (we love McCann’s quick oats – order from amazon.com) 1 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut ( the coconut chips are the big chunks – order from nuts.com or tropicaltraditions.com if you can’t find it) 1/2 cup goji berries ( or other dried fruit you like, or dark chocolate chips….)
1/3 cup pumpkin 1 tsp vanilla 1/2 tsp cinnamon
dash of sea salt
I mashed this all up with my hands.
I used a cookie scoop and placed the cookies on a baking sheet rubbed with a little coconut oil. I baked them in a 350 degree oven for 12 minutes.
This recipe made 18 chewy Pumpkin Banana Goji Cookies. Sometimes I crave something with a little old-fashioned oats in it. Oats don’t spike your insulin, so now and then, it’s not going to be a big deal. These cookies are so healthy and so fast!
Ger Sasser is fast, too. I love this #sanfranfire from earlier today:
