Raw Vegan Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins
Oh how I love PB&J. That’s why I created my Raw Vegan Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins. Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches are my favorite pre-race, carbo-loading food. Ever since I ate one the night before my first marathon, and did well, it’s become a superstition for me. Eat a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich the night before a race=have great race.
I’ve even had friends make me sandwiches:))))
Sadly, I haven’t raced since New Year’s Day. I have suffered from multiple pelvic fractures and Plantar Fasciitis this year. To be fair, I did run 101 miles on New Year’s. Do you think I over did it????
Now, I am finally getting back into running. But, I’m not pushing it. I want to enjoy my runs and stay injury free. I just live in the now, run free and don’t think about anything except how much I enjoy the feeling of my body moving through space. So, the races and Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches will have to wait until my body is ready to be pushed again.
Funnily, the day I brought these to work, some my co-workers were talking about eating Peanut Butter right out of the jar. True story! And of course, that’s how I like to eat it. This is also why I don’t keep it in the house. Nevertheless, they loved this recipe and so did I.
Julian loved it so much he’s been eating them every night after dinner. But last night and I had to break the news to him that I ate the rest. Oops! I will have make more. Side note*I made these with Sunbutter for Julian since he allergic to nuts. Still delish!
