Before tomorrow’s 18.5km run, I thought I’d do an energy bar cook-up using The Ultimate Energy Bar Formula from the No Meat Athlete.
As it’s title suggests, it’s a formula rather than a recipe, where you can mix and match your favourite ingredients.
The ingredients I chose were:
- Butter beans
- Peanut butter
- Whole meal flour
- Coconut (shredded)
These energy bars were delicious. I made them chewy (easier to eat when running) although if I wanted to I could have cooked them slower & made them crunchy.
In my house, the real proof is whether or not my kids will eat them. My kids must love them as I caught both of them trying to sneak some more after I had said no more. My daughter even asked if they could be her lunchbox treat at school. That’s a real win to have her think of a sugar-free recipe as a treat.
I’m looking forward to trying more combinations.
