ATTN BUSY RUNNERS WITH A SWEET TOOTH! This recipe contains minimal ingredients, is QUICK AND EASY, and freaking delicious!
Clean Eating Peanut Butter Bars
I have lived off these since I started running. I find them quick to digest so I can easily eat one before a run without cramping up (which is insane because I'm the type who can't even have a glass of water before I hit the trails!) I enjoy the recipe as is, however you can add dark chocolate to the final step, or any type of nut. I put mine in the freezer because it creates a chunkier texture, however you can use the fridge if you like it softer like a cookie. The macros shown above are without chocolate and nuts.
1 cup of all natural peanut butter (you can use regular peanut butter if you prefer) 1/2 cup of honey 1/2 cup coconut oil 2 cups of oats 4 squares of dark chocolate (optional) 1/2 cup of chopped nuts (optional) Melt the peanut butter, honey and coconut oil over medium heat, stirring constantly. (Do not walk away because it will burn). Once melted remove from heat. Stir in oatmeal until is is all blended. If you are using the chocolate or nuts, stir it in after the oatmeal is blended. Pour in pan. Put in freezer for 45 minutes before serving. Let me know what you think!!
