Made these last week and would you believe it if I told you that I get to eat these beauties on my 80 Day Obsession meal plan?!?! Yes ma’am I do!
I don't get to eat these every day, but on re-feed days I hide them in the fridge just for me! LOL! Re-feed days in my current fitness program, 80 Day Obsession, allow for treats and carbs that have a higher glycemic index in order to replenish the glycogen levels in your muscles to increase strength gains as well as bust plateaus. Re-feed days also provide for a bit of a mental break in this Clean Eating program, where having a brownie or a white hamburger bun is actually suggested every other week. And the mental break alone has been surprisingly refreshing!
My kiddos beg me for these every week! Sometimes on multiple days too! They are warm and filling and made with whole foods so I can't complain. They are especially great for those kiddos who don't like a bowl of oatmeal, as they will scarf these down without hesitation. Enjoy!
