Written by Kassia Gardner

Ingredients

240 grams almond nut butter (or any peanut/nut butter you like)

240 grams brown sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 large egg, lightly beaten

Coarse sea salt, for sprinkling

Method

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C.

Then in a bowl add all the ingredients and mix until well combined.

Spoon a good-sized heaped teaspoon onto a tray covered in baking paper, and flatten slightly with the back of the spoon. Keep them well spaced out as the mixture spreads while cooking and you don’t want to end up with one giant cookie (or maybe you do).

Sprinkle a little coarse sea salt on them and then put them in the oven for around 10 minutes until they are golden around the edges.

Once out of the oven transfer to a rack to cool and then store in an airtight container. I break these cookies into chunks and wrap in tin foil or cling film to take them out on my long runs.

Serves one for breakfast or you can make around 20 mini power pancakes

Morning Fuel Power Pancakes

1/2 sachet of Morning Fuel

1 small sweet potato

1 large egg

Smoked paprika – approximately 3/4 teaspoon

Tumeric – approximately 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon

Coconut oil (for cooking)

METHOD:

Blend all the ingredients until smooth.

Heat coconut oil gently on a very low heat. Add the mixture to the pan (a generous tablespoon makes a good size pancake) turn the pancakes after a minute or so and cook until golden brown.

Garnish with your favourite topping and enjoy!

Toppings: We love Greek yoghurt, Blueberries or Strawberries and some ground nuts.

Mini Power Pancakes
For an on the go bite sized snack “Mini Power Pancakes” are perfect during activities. Gently fry a heaped teaspoonful of mixture in the coconut oil to make this delicious bite sized pancake. Remove from heat and leave to cool and then bag up six at a time in sealable bags.

Mini Power Pancakes can be frozen and defrost in minutes so perfect to grab and go as you need them.

Morning Fuel Ultimate Shake
Ultimate training / race day breakfast shake
1 sachet Morning Fuel (Mountain Fuel product)
300 to 400 ml semi skimmed milk or alternative
Desert spoon coconut oil
1 small Banana
1 or 2 soft figs
Handful of sesame seeds
Handful of pumpkin seeds

Simply blitz in a blender, pour into a container, sip away and enjoy.

For extra flavour add 1/4 teaspoon of ginger and cinnamon to taste. Ginger and cinnamon are great for digestion and taste great too.

And for an extra energy boost add in dried dates to the blend before mixing which are also a great source of dietary fibre and potassium.

Be mindful about the time you start drinking this, you need to give your body time to digest it before you start running.

Melt 250 gram of butter in a pan. Stir in 4 tubs of Greek yogurt. Add some something to give a bit of substance if you wish. Sometimes I crush up Macadamia nuts, others times I add oats. Make sure it is all is blended nicely. Pour a small amount, similar to a gel amount, say 50 grams into a plastic sandwich bag and tie a very firm knot in the top. When you want to use them, just grab one of the two corners in your teeth and bite it off, then suck/squeeze the mixture out. Always dispose of the cling film and plastic bags appropriately
