My legs were feeling good today (after teaching spin/a little active recovery yesterday) so I was up and at ‘em for a 10k this morning by the lake. I had a few buds from IRC come along for the ride. It was crazy humid (90 percent humidity) so I was drenched by the end. It felt good to get out a good sweat though. It’s definitely good for the skin. Kinda sorta like a facial. See, running can be a part of your beauty regimen too. Just saying.
So as promised today I’m giving you the recipe for my rendition of the No Bake Energy Breakfast Bites. Some of you call them balls…but yeah, haha…balls, bites, they are all the same to me! They make a great post workout breakfast treat. I made them for my running group and they gobbled ‘em up!
Here’s what you will need. My recipe makes about 20-25 bites, give or take.
-1 1/2 cups of organic rolled oats (dry)
-1/3 cup honey (I used the organic local honey from Sprouts)
-1/2 cup of chocolate chips
-2-3 tbsps chia seeds
-1/2 cup of all natural/organic crunchy peanut butter (you can use a different butter too…like cashew or almond)
Mix the rolled oats together with the peanut butter, fold in the chocolate chips. Drizzle the honey and sprinkle in the chia seeds until it’s all mixed together. Put the mixture in the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes (to get a better consistency when you roll ‘em up into balls). Roll up into individual balls/bites and place in the freezer until ready to eat.
Yum! I am getting excited just talking about these. I will have to make some more here very soon.
Do you have any fun post workout recipes to share?
