Homemade Energy Bars

This week, MarathonMike and I have been eating homemade energy bars! Nothing against ClifBars, but lately I haven't been interested in them before or after a run. I've been craving peanut butter like crazy and ClifBars just weren't doing it for me. And let's face it, part of the reward for running is a tasty healthy treat for a job well done, no matter the distance or the time! 

I didn't come up with the idea on my own. Instead, I happened to see the recipe in a Runner's World email and I knew it was a sign. Very easy to make and quite yummy! I had a bar this morning before a short run and I felt good - no stomach issues! During the week, I crumbled the bars into my yogurt for lunch and enjoyed them after my afternoon runs. They tasted fresh and had plenty of peanut butter to satisfy my craving.
