Perfect Energy Bars for Cycling
We just spent a great week ski touring in the Queyras. Food choice on a trip like this is really important as you need to carry all your daytime snacks for the whole week. These bars worked really well and they taste great. The best thing about this recipe is you can change most of the ingredients to incorporate what you fancy or what you have in the cupboard. The following is a recipe for one of our favourites. Our guests can look forward to these during their relaxing cycling holiday at Serre des Ormes this summer. I just need to resist testing them with a cup of coffee.
100g Butter (or Coconut Oil)
50g Toasted Almonds
75g Chopped Dates
75g Chopped Figs
45g Chopped Apricots
65g Mix of Flax, Chia, Pumpkin and Sunflower
Melt the butter and honey in a pan, add all the dried fruit then add all the other ingredients and thoroughly combine. Push into an 20cm square tin and level off with a fork. Bake for 25 at 150 degrees, cool slightly in the tin then cut into 16 squares before completely cooled. Store in a sealed container in the fridge.
Happy pedalling. Kate
