I’m sure most of you have heard of or destroyed a few Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups?! I can thank (hmm or maybe I shouldn’t) my friend Barbara for putting me onto them all those years ago in Adelaide.
Anyway, I don’t know many people who don’t love that magical peanut butter and chocolate combo – and this recipe, based loosely on a recipe from John Berardi’s “Gourmet Nutrition” cookbook , definitely motivates me to train in the morning in order to smash this “Post-workout” meal!
What is a “post-workout” meal? I hear you ask… Well friends, a post workout meal is simply one higher in the carbohydrates that are generally best consumed in the 3 hour window post exercise.
Wait for it, it’s complicated…
Combine 1/3 cup oats with 2/3 cup of water, stir in 1 tablespoon each of cacao powder, peanut butter (100% of course) and rice malt syrup (may use honey, agave or a small amount of stevia to sweeten instead) – cook on the stove or in microwave! Super easy and warming on a winter morning after training! – ENJOY!
