Runner Recipe: Peanut Butter Power Cookies

This recipe comes to us from Anne and her awesome blog FANNEtastic Food. We’ve always said that runners don’t have to give up dessert, but dessert feels that much better if it’s packed with natural, whole ingredients that add value to your day. These dairy-free cookies are sweetened with maple syrup instead of refined sugar, and can be made gluten-free for those with sensitivities. Check out the video and full post here, and make sure to explore Anne’s blog for other delicious treats to add a little treat to your day.
