Yay me. (Silly me is more like it.)
But more running means my metabolism is slightly cranked up and sometimes I want to eat food. No, not just eat. SCARF food. I want the food to GET IN MY BELLY.
This feeling especially happened after running 12 miles two weekends ago. Even though I had a hearty brunch after my run, in the afternoon I needed more food. And my stomach told me it wanted cookies.
I did a quick inventory of ingredients and then decided that whatever I made needed to have protein in it. Thus, these nicely plump Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies were born.
They were delicious and just what my tummy ordered. I ate a handful that evening and then about a dozen the next day.
*hanging head* It's true...
But that just goes to show how yummy I found this mix of peanut butter, cookie, and chocolate. (Or just how much my metabolism was ignited!)allrecipes
