"I think that there’s a bit of hysteria around energy gels and bars when cyclists are on the road. Many who are just going for an hours ride think that they need to have at least one gel and one bar.
There are lots of great recipes for snacks you can have when cycling, jogging or cross-country skiing. You’ll also save money. Each recipe gives about twenty bars and costs much less than commercial bars from the sports shop. " Henrik Orre
Why not give this recipe for homemade muesli bars a go.
MAKES APPROX 20 BARS
A traditional and very simple bar made from muesli and honey. It’s also very good value for money, this recipe makes about 20 bars.
