    Recipe Review: Jenniferm’s Athete’s Cookies


    I came across this recipe on the Running Room forum – the instructions are a little disjointed in the thread, so here’s the complete version, compiled from all of the messages:

    Athlete’s Cookies

    1 c flour
    1 c oats
    1/4 c bran
    1/2 c brown sugar
    1/2 c raisins
    1/4 c choc. Chips
    2 egg whites
    1/4 c margarine
    1/2 c peanut butter

    Mix all but the last three ingredients together, so they are uniformly mixed, then add the last three ingredients and squish everything together with both hands until you have a uniformly squished cookie mess.   Bake for 12-15 minutes at 350F makes about 26 cookies.

    I will admit, my hand might have slipped while I was measuring the chocolate chips and I might have ended up with some extras in there…oops…

    They don’t spread much so you’ll want to consider flattening slightly with a fork; otherwise you end up more with balls than cookies.

    Anyway…full of all sorts of chocolately-raisiny-peanut buttery goodness, I love these cookies as a post-run food.  Not too sweet, yet more of a treat than toast with peanut butter!  I highly recommend them.

    A runner for just over four years, Karen has already completed a marathon, two half marathons and a variety of 5k and 10k races. She describes her first marathon - the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon last September - as "a nightmare." However, she met a very interesting person in the process - a man named Sydney who was running his 152nd marathon! Although the race didn't go as well as planned for Karen or Sydney, he showed her that no matter how experienced a runner you are, you can still have a bad day. "Does that mean we shouldn't bother to prepare, or maybe just shouldn't bother at all? Of course not!" says Karen. "In the end, it is what we make it." We like her optimism!
