Happy Wednesday! Training today was tough. Just 3 miles in 30 minutes, but I feel like the treadmill won that battle. I’m very sore from yesterday’s cross training + yoga but hopefully my body will get used to this.
Now on to the chocolate protein “bites”. I got the recipe from one of my favorite healthy living blogs, Peanut Butter Fingers. I don’t think mine turned out as pretty.
I was on the search for a little bite with a big kick. Something I could pop into my mouth in the early morning hours before my morning runs. This really did the trick. They’re chewy, not too sweet and just 2 bites does enough.
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup chocolate protein
1 TB dark choc cocoa powder OR carob powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet or grease sheet.
Combine all dry ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl. Add eggs and pumpkin to dry mixture and stir well. Use a tablespoon to measure out dough onto baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 7-8 mins.
