Adapted from my Peanut Butter Protein Baked Oatmeal
1/2 cup oats
2 tbsp peanut flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
About 8 pretzels (I used Newman's Own spelt pretzels), broken into pieces
Small handful chocolate chips (plus more for snacking :P)
A couple pinches of sea salt
1 tbsp peanut butter\
2 tbsp chocolate syrup (I used Walden Farms brand)
3 tbsp almond milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Stir together the oats, peanut flour, baking powder, pretzels, chocolate chips, and salt.
Stir in the remaining ingredients
Pour into a greased ramekin, and bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes.
NOTE: The pretzels do not keep their crunch which I didn't mind, but if you want them to stay crunchy, consider sprinkling them on top (perhaps also putting the oatmeal in a shallower dish, and possibly reducing baking time, so that there is more surface room for the pretzels). I have not tried this, but it seems like it would work!
Oh and running update: I did 7.19 miles on Sunday! I love my long runs, though around mile five, my knees started hurting so I purposely slowed down a bit because I definitely want to avoid injury at all costs! I made sure to take ibuprofen and ice them when I was done and that helped, but I did my four mile run on the track yesterday for a bit of a softer surface and less strain. If anyone has any tips for people like me who struggle with their knees, please let me know!
Have a great rest of the week everyone!!
