You deserve a treat, right?
While cookies aren’t exactly the healthiest item on the planet, they taste so darn good. And when you fit them into your diet at the right time, they serve a purpose.
For example, eat these before or after a long run or ride. Or after a HIIT session. In other words, when you need quick energy or need to replace lost glycogen for repeated training sessions. These are even better during a long training session when you can’t possibly choke down another gel. But man, those cookies look and taste delicious, providing the perfect pick-me up. You’ll thank me, I promise.
Or you could just have one for dessert.
Save me one, because these little guys are my favorites. And while they are technically gluten-free, you can easily replace the flour with regular flour. Decorate them if you want. Or don’t. But definitely savor them.
