Training Week 7: NuttZo Power Fuel No-Bakes

Marathon training is often accompanied by a few "side effects" such as moderate random chafing, excessive foam rolling and runger (a.k.a. "running hunger"). Here is my solution to this week's case of the runger!

While I'm not a passionate baker, I do enjoy eating baked goods and am a firm believer that everything is better homemade. I prefer to keep my recipes simple and, well, it doesn't get much more simplified than no-bake cookies!

As a proud 2016 NuttZo Ambassador — seriously, they are so good to us — I want to share with you my all-time favorite no-bake cookie recipe made with NuttZo's Chocolate Power Fuel.

NuttZo Power Fuel No-Bakes


Melt butter on medium heat and stir occasionally. I used plain old store-bought butter today. Once the butter is almost completely melted, add sugar, milk, and cocoa powder. Stir ingredients until well combined.


Bring mixture to a boil and allow to boil for 1 minute. Continue stirring.


Remove from heat. Add NuttZo Power Fuel and stir until the mixture has a smooth consistency. That's the last of our jar!


Pour in quick oats and mix until evenly coated. Bring in cute, enthusiastic helper to stir ingredients (pictured below).


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Neatly pour spoon-sized amounts of no-bake "batter" in rows on the baking sheet OR spoon messy piles of deliciousness all over the place. You choose!

Guess which option we were going for...


Allow cookies to "set" at room temperature for 30 minutes OR spoon the gooey cookie blobs straight into your mouth.


Refrigerate the remaining cookies in an air-tight container for up to 2 weeks. If there are any cookies left, that is ☺️
