During Ride – No Bake Energy Bites
How to fuel for a long ride? Nutrition and how you fuel can be the difference between a great ride and suffering halfway.
It’s important to remember that the fuelling can be split into Pre-Ride, Post-Ride and During Ride, and is not a one size fits all so it’s important to find what works best for you.
Over a series of blogs we will be giving you different recipe ideas to help on your journey towards your Action Medical Research RIDE.
- 120g Oats
- 120g Peanut butter
- 110g Honey
- 50g Dark chocolate chips
- 50g Cranberries
- 25g Pumpkin seeds
- Splash of Vanilla extract
- Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
If the mixture is too dry add more peanut butter, or if too wet add more oats. Then place in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill
- Once out the fridge roll into individual balls, depending on the size you choose this will make 10 – 15 bites.
- Enjoy! These can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 week or wrapped up and placed in your pocket for a mid-ride treat
Feel free to experiment – these will work with different ‘mix ins’ so switch out the cranberries, chocolate and seeds for your favourite dried fruit and seeds.
