White Chia Oatmeal Cookies
This flourless cookie is similar to my chia chip cookies, but with a twist: white chia seeds and powdered almond butter! Powdered peanut butter works too but powdered almond butter is my newest obsession. It's an easy way to add in protein and lend a great texture to baked goods.
These travel well too. With or without the chocolate chips, they are tasty and a great post-run treat. Pair a rainy day run with a couple of these cookies and you'll be golden!
Comfy shoes like my newest pair that actually glow in the dark and are water-resistant (thanks Newton Running, for the hookup!), a light drizzle and fresh baked cookies is my ideal weekend day.
Seriously, though. They GLOW! Okay, back to the cookies...
