Chocolate Peanut Butter Filled Oat Bars
I wanted to run around 10 miles today but I was just two tired. I tried not to get down about this but I really was tired, it was humid and the Citi bikes everywhere were so so tempting. I biked a few miles then ran again then biked again. Exercise is exercise and I should know from training for the marathon that sometimes running a long training run isn't in the cards. I'm running the 5th Ave mile fun run on September 10th and then the Bronx 10 mile on September 24th. And lastly, a 5K on November 4th which will be 9 runs and I will be qualified for the 2018 NYC half and full marathons. I'm super proud of all the running I did this year so getting down over one training run is silly. Don't get down over 1 training run!
1 cup of oats
3/4 cups of peanut butter
1/4 cup of maple syrup or any liquid sweetener
1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
3 tbsp of non dairy milk
1/4 cup of coconut oil, melted
2 tbsp of coco powder
3 tbsp of maple syrup
Mix everything until you get a cookie consistency. Press some of the mixture into bar molds, spread some peanut butter on top then cover with some more of the cookie mixture. Mix all the chocolate ingredients in a small pot on the stove and when it is cool, drizzle on top of each bar. This recipe makes about 5 bars. I hope you love them!
