Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I've been running a lot again this summer. I'm not training for much over 6 miles and yet every weekend for the past month I've run at least 8 or more miles in one go.

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!)
