Nutrition for Runners: Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Bites

image

Tonight’s recipe is a very easy and tasty one to try. I made them the other day while my girls were watching a movie. It took me about 15 minutes to prepare them and there was no cooking involved.

These energy bites are a healthy source of carbs due to the use of raisins and oats. The fact that they are bite size also makes them very convenient for running.

These energy bites are also very tasty which is not always the case with options you find in stores. I’m sure most of you have experience with energy bars that taste more like chalk than anything else.

My wife and my daughter were fans of this recipe as well. I already have requests to make more. If you want to try this recipe head over here to the Run Ottawa website to check it out.
