Fuel My Friday: Cassie's Cookie Bars

2 Oct 2020

Ok, so we're not going to dress this up as the healthiest of #FuelMyFriday's... but when there's reason to celebrate, even top athletes allow themselves a treat and you can to!

Cassie Wild was recently announced as returning to the World Class Performance Programme for the 2020/21 season, and with the University of Stirling based athlete quite the prolific baker, we caught up with her for a recipe to a delicious celebratory treat. 

Over to you Cassie...

I really enjoy experimenting with my baking and post several of my creations up to my @cassiesbakes_ Instagram channel. This Peanut Butter Cookie Bar recipe is one I've crafted myself, it's fun treat to make and great for sharing with friends!
