Peanut Butter Power Cookies!

by Nicole on July 17, 2012

Hi! Just got back from a nice 5 mile run….and by nice.. I mean nice that it’s over. Every step seemed to be a struggle today…which I think is due to the leg workout I did yesterday. I was a little sore and I think my legs just weren’t feeling it. I broke the run up by running for 12 minutes and walking for 2 and did that a total of 4 times. Also I listened to Jillian Michael’s podcast of the week, which always helps keep me motivated.

Yesterday I needed a little afternoon pick me up when I got home from doing work related errands I wanted to make some raw cookies, so I opened the pantry and threw together some ingreidents to make a deliciously healthy cookie.

My requirements for this cookie were: had to have “power” ingredients in them, somewhat low in sugar, easy and obviously delicious. These are all of the above. It was a great snack to have when my sister in law stopped by with her 3 kids on the way home from CT too! The kids loved them!


These are such a perfect snack and I even enjoyed one before my run this morning to fuel up!

What’s your perfect snack right now? 

Something to read: Caitlin posted such a well written piece on The Mommy Wars.  What’s your take on this? I personally feel like, you do what you need to do for your own family. What’s right for you, may not be right for the next family and we all need to do the best we can, with the tools we are given. No judgements.

The fact that you are still able to go out and run 5 is amazing. I ran two yesterday and I was tired. LOL.

Cookies look yummy… your baby is gonna get all the good snacks!

Delicious! Pinning these for sure!

I read Caitlin’s take on the Mommy Wars, too. Everyone has their own opinion and thinks it’s the best way. When in reality we are all different and have different situations. Imagine what motherhood could be like if we all supported each other 100% and didn’t have petty Mommy Wars?

I am scared I would eat them all – portion control might go out the window! ;-)
