This recipe is a mix of natural sugars and complex carbs (whole grains, oats, nuts and so forth), which is perfect for cycling. The first offers a quick energy boost and the latter is a long-lasting fuel source. Sodium and potassium are crucial, too, but it’s easy to cover the bases if you eat a variety of food.
I never go cycling without these in my pack... and I always bring enough for my friends. In this photo I doubled the recipe.
Heat the maple syrup and peanut butter over medium heat until hot. Stir often to prevent burning the bottom.
Combine the cereals, cranberries and chocolate chips in a large mixing bowl. Pour and stir in the heated maple syrup/peanut butter mix into the cereal mixture. Mix well until it is all coated.
Press into a square pan. Let cool completely before cutting. Once cut i freeze them and grab a couple every time we head out.
Only eat these if your exercising heavy. Each 2X2 piece delivers about 250 calories (wowza!) and 40 grams of carbs. But it's a perfect dose of energy for a long endurance ride.
