new food for riding

I have been working on a new recipe for bars to eat while riding.  Those that were at our team camp a few weeks ago had a chance to try these new treats.  They are a tasty treat with plenty of carbs and some protein.

Here are the ingredients you will need.

  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup creamy unsalted peanut butter
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 cups rice cereal
  • 1 cup of dried mealworms
  • ½ cup of dried crickets

You'll want to put the honey in a small pot and bring to a light boil. As you are waiting for honey to heat up mix your dry ingredients together in a large bowl; rice cereal, salt, dried meal worms, dried crickets. After your honey comes to a boil mix in the peanut butter. Stir the peanut butter into the honey until it's smooth. once thoroughly mix pour it over you dry ingredients. Mix everything thoroughly to make sure the honey and peanut butter coat all of the dry ingredients. Once the mixture is completely coated pour it into a glass 9x13 baking dish and spread evenly, press firmly to compact it into the pan. Let it cool completely, about an hour.  After it has cooled it's now timed to cut. I prefer pieces about 1" by 2" to eat while riding, though this can be cut any size that you see fit.

There you have it a quick simple recipe to eat while out on the bike, it'll help replenish the carbs you are burning and protein you body will need to recover. These are very tasty and will go quickly, so long as no one ask for the recipe.
