Coming from a writing/social media/SEO background I’ve started to put a little more thought in titles for my recipes. My usual go-to for recipe titles are “name main ingredients/flavors then what recipe is”. So as that seems to be working thus far – I’m going to keep going with it.
It’s been three months and I’m still on the pre-workout energy bite train. I’ve now incorporated strength training before my daily runs (Mainly because they have been cut short since it doesn’t get light until almost 7:30 and even though I’ll run in the dark at night, I don’t in the morning. Is it just me or does it feel warmer at night?) and since I do that at home, it’s easy for me to get distracted if I’m hungry.
I made these completely in the food processor but if you want the chunky oat texture just put the dates in the food processor (or chop them up) and mix in.
