Peanut Butter Obsessions
|September 16, 2011||Posted by Sweet Tooth Runner under Recipes, Running Talk|
HEY friends!! Hope you’re all having a good week! And thanks for entering my giveaway guys, and keep the entries coming!
First up, important RUNNING NEWS!!! So I went and saw the physio today, and the prognosis? I don’t have a stress fracture, but I do have BONE STRESS. My physio described this as ‘Stage 1 of a stress fracture’, and said it was a very good thing I stopped when I did! He does think it is caused by my bone density issues, although I’ll hopefully be getting a full prognosis and everything next week.
SO next week I will go back and properly find out what is going on, and see about my running plans, and whether I can still do my half marathon! Honestly, I don’t have high hopes, seeing as it is less than four weeks away, but what’s meant to be is meant to be, and I have a LONG running career ahead of me. Paula Radcliffe had better watch his back cos she ain’t got nothing on me
Conveniently, my physio place is built in to my gym! So I literally went there straight from my sweaty workout!
I LOVE spinning, and I am thinking of getting qualified next year and teaching part time for some mula! Whadya think? I would have Disney themed spin classes and it would be AWESOME!
So then straight off to the physio…
I didn’t even have time to shower first…but at least I remembered to shave my legs first, unlike last time!!
Have I mentioned I have no hot water at the moment? Keeping it classy here as always with my Leg Shaving Setup:
Hot water from the kettle in a pan is the way to go.
My physio appointment was a late one, so by the time I got home, it was 10pm! So I threw together a quick dinner:
Sundried tomato wholewheat couscous, veggie sausages, and cucumber. Ready in 10 minutes flat
Dessert was a mini PB muffin, topped with Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter:
These are my new FAVOURITE muffins!! I love them so much!!
Healthy Peanut Butter Muffins
These muffins are delicious, and so quick and easy to make! High in protein and fibre, with sugar free and fat free options, they are the perfect snack and tasty treat!
Vegan. Makes approx 8 small muffins, or 6 large ones
- 1 cup wholewheat flour (I used wholewheat spelt)
- 3/4 cup peanut flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon or ground mixed spice
- 1/3 cup MoreFiber Stevia Baking Blend, or regular sugar
- 1 cup soy milk, or milk of choice (I used just over a cup, add more if needed)
- 4 tsp crunchy PB (or sub all/some unsweetened applesuce for a fat-free option)
- Preheat your oven to 350F/180C. Line or grease a muffin pan.
- Mix dry ingredients together well (flours, baking powder, spices, sugar). Add wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Note: the batter will be VERY thick because of the peanut flour, almost more like cookie dough. It is supposed to be quite thick, but if you need to add more milk, then go ahead.
- Spoon into muffin cups/cases and bake for approx 10 minutes. Let cool on a cooling rack, and ENJOY!!

It is SO GOOD in oatmeal too!!
And best of all when slathered in chocolate hazelnut butter
Just pretend you can’t see the finger marks in the jar, ok? That is officially my favourite nut butter in the WHOLE WORLD and I have a few spoonfuls/fingers every day!
If you could teach any form of exercise, what would it be? Well really it would be running, but spinning comes in second! I’d also love to teach yoga someday.
What time do you normally eat dinner? I’m always fascinated that people eat at such different times! Usually for me at about 8-9pm because of running training and stuff. I have a LOT of afternoon snacks to make up for the long gap!
Your FAVE nut butter in the WORLD? Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut, then probably Justin’s Maple Almond, or PB&Co White Chocolate Wonderful and Cinnamon Raisin Swirl!
Have an AMAZING rest of the week friends!! <3
