I don’t know about you guys, but I am always looking for “healthy” treats that taste and feel indulgent but can be eaten guilt free. Plus, if you remember last month’s blog, after a run we have a short “Window of Opportunity” to give our body the nutrients it needs to recover properly. When we take advantage of this Window of Opportunity, we replenish energy stores, reduce inflammation, prevent injury and get back out there and hit the pavement even quicker!
Banana Coconut Cookies
Makes 36 bite sized cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine banana, vanilla extract and coconut oil. Set aside. In another bowl, stir together the oats, ground almonds, coconut, cinnamon, salt and baking powder. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until combined. Fold in cacao nibs. Drop dollops of dough, each about 2 tsp in size, an inch apart, onto a prepared cookie sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes.
How do these cookies help me recover faster?
Pack these with you and enjoy as soon as you can after your run!
