Oatmeal Chocolate Peanut Butter No-bake Cookies
I made these easy no-bake oats-chocolate-peanut butter cookie today. I left out the wheat germ and flax (didn't have any), used old-fashioned oats (I had that) rather than quick and decreased the vanilla to 1/2 tspn. Thanks for posting the recipe, Kate! Find the nutritional info here at food.com. The cocoa, oats and PB taste great together.
Sunny and 50*F/10*C this morning! I warmed up for two miles and then I planned to run 6-7 marathon paced miles (8:47/mi) with hills included. These are just short, easy hills so it was really no big deal - no mountains here in Houston! I ended up running 7 MP miles at an average pace of 8:42 and a total of 10.6 miles which was supposed to be an even 10, but I had some mathematical confusion out there!
