How you fuel your body is just as important as how you exercise. This recipe is jam-packed with healthy ingredients to give you the energy and nutrients you need for optimal marathon training.


  • 1/2 cup natural, creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds


  1. Melt the peanut butter and honey together. When they have melted, remove from the heat and add the vanilla. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until thoroughly combined.
  2. Scoop out a heaping teaspoon and roll into a tight ball. After a few, your hands may have too much granola on them to form the mixture into balls. If this happens, simply wash your hands or grease with oil. You can also press into a pan and cut into bars.
