Quick Hello and Peanut Butter Cookies

Notice anything different?

The site is still a work in progress but it is slowly coming together. Please bear with me if you experience any glitches – I am so not patient when it comes to computers nor am I close to even being considered tech savvy… but I am learning.

I also have no patience with the less than fun runs that just keep occurring. Over and over.

I have been trying to determine what could be the cause of my running rut. I am always trying to cure things through food and  realized that I haven’t been eating enough sweet potatoes lately so I made sure to have them with dinner last night as pre-fun fuel.

I set out nice and early this morning under the impression that I felt great. Well except for the fact that the sun is slowly rising later and later signifying that summer is almost over.

The first four miles were fine. After that, well, things went down hill. My left foot started aching and the ache continued up my calf.

I stopped to adjust my laces a few times but it did nothing to alleviate the problem.

Could I be due for new sneakers already? I sure as heck hope not but I guess anything is possible.

As soon as I finished my run, my foot and leg felt fine – which is a good thing. The last thing I need, or anyone needs for that matter, is an injury.

Cookies though, cookies are always welcome.

The most incredible flourless peanut butter chocolate chip cookies ever.

I first learned of this recipe from Jen over at Peanut Butter Runner.

I have made them a few times and I am absolutely insisting that you make these cookies as soon as possible.

With no flour or butter, I may even deem them healthy.

I, of course, used Peanut Butter & Co. Crunch Time peanut butter but you can use any nut butter of your choice.

I also used a heavy hand adding the chocolate chips to the batter – the more the merrier in my mind.

Warning: MAJOR SELF CONTROL NEEDED WHEN YOU REMOVE THESE COOKIES FROM THE OVEN.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    I am loving the new look! Also, I noticed for the millionth time today, that I always misread the title of your blog. I read it as “The Cookie CRUNchies” for some reason. I have no idea why.
    Those cookies look amazing, by the way. I will have to try them sometime soon!
