Monday seems to be my favorite day to blog…
Today, though, I have lots to catch up on (school work, cleaning up, thesis, work, etc) after a long and FUN weekend at the Wildflower (WF) triathlon festival. I fully intend to post about WF asap. Until then, I would like to share a post I drafted a few weeks ago with a new favorite recipe:
Early mornings, when time and mental capacity are sparse, can be bettered by easy, pre-prepared, satisfying baked goods. The recipe below, adapted from the USAT newsletter, yields some energy-dense breakfast “power cookies” that can be frozen for simple breakfasts or consumed before workouts as an energy bar. One giant leap towards abolishing 5am refrigerator scavenging!
*I have added some suggested substitutions for some of the ingredients below. However, my favorite, most dessert-cookie-like, batch was the product of the bold, non-italicized, ingredients. Other versions may provide more-ideal nutrient blends (more healthy fats/less added sugar/no gluten), but go with what you have on hand and adjust to your personal preference!
