    Vegan Chocolate Dipped Banana Roll Up

    Anything that starts with a banana on a stick sounds like a good idea. To make these little vegan bad boys, wrap that banana in a whole-grain flatbread smeared with almond butter and high-fiber cereal, then dunk them into rich dairy-free dark chocolate. Make a big batch, freeze extras, and pull them out after a hard, hot workout.
