Baking Hannah's Energy Food

Bake at home recipes

Introducing Hannah from Senior Race squad, those who have been lucky enough to be in the same squad, know that she loves to bake. 

 

Hannah has been working hard, creating her very own recipes. They were developed in conjunction with her food nutrition study at school and align to sports science evidence on pre and post exercise nutrition.

These can be seen on the 'Total Nutritional Value' included for each recipe. Her aim was to include 100% natural ingredients that restore energy levels and taste amazing.

See below Hannah's original 'After Swim Refuel' Banana Muffins and her 'Slow Burn Fuel' Energy Bars recipes, an ideal healthy energy boost pre and post training or during competitions.

Newly created recipes to keep you powered for our return to the pool in 2021...

"Ever since I was little, not only have I loved to be in the water and swimming but I have also always loved to bake.  I often bake for my squad, which has given me the nickname baking Hannah. I work as a junior volunteer for the Club and one day when I was working Steve Greenfield came and spoke to me about my baking.  He asked if I could come up with some healthy recipes for swimmers to eat after training sessions and at meets.  I agreed and coach Emily Budzynski-Seymour kindly gave me some information to help get me started. After lots of research and experimenting I had some final recipes which I got Spencer and Fleur to taste test."
