The weather in Waco has been pretty great running weather and I love being able to run after work. However, some days when the work day ends I don't have the energy to run. I'm trying really hard to stick to a some-what healthier and injury-prevention eating plan; which includes avoiding all energy drinks. So I have being doing some pinterest research and stumbled across these bad boys...
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies!
I was a little skeptical at first, but I really had a burst of energy that lasted with no intense crash. Plus they kept me full until dinner so I wasn't snacking between meals.
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
- 2 Tbsp ground flax seed
- 2 scoops protein powder
- Preheat oven to 375
- Combine all ingredients and mix well (they are very thick)
- Scoop onto cookie sheet and flatten with a fork (makes 8 big cookies or 12-16 smaller)
- Bake 14-18 min. (watch for browning)
Happy Hump Day!!
