Healthy Energy Bar For Cyclists

As a convenient source for slow release of energy, that's tasty and healthy fuel for cyclists. 

Paleo & gluten-free energy bar packed with flavor and nutrition that are easy to make.

Made with natural sugar from fruits and not from processed or refined sugars, that give you energy spikes and then fast dips, unlike from natural fruits that also contain nutrition. Blended with almonds, coconut
dark chocolate and chia seeds


Healthy Energy Bar For Cyclists 

Ingredients 
Buy organic without any additives where possible
150 grams almonds (flakes or whole) Also add a few Macadamia Nuts
100 grams dried unsweetened cranberries. And/or add dried Apricots, Mango and/or Pineapple 
200 grams pitted dates 
2 table spoons extra virgin coconut oil
2 table spoons grated 100% cacao (Chocolate) 
1 table spoon chia seeds (I buy already milled)

But experiment to figure out what works best for you and feel free to play with the ratios

Instructions 
1. Add the almonds in to a blender or food processor and mix at low speed for 1 minute 
2. Chop the dates in to 3rd's 
3. Then combine the rest of the ingredients in a blender or food processor, pulse a few times to break everything up. Then blend continuously until the ingredients have broken down and start to clump together into a ball.
4. Turn out the mixture onto a piece of greaseproof paper, press into an even square. Wrap in the paper and for at least an hour.
5. Cut into desired size of bars, wrapping each bar in plastic wrap to store in the fridge

Best to make the night before you need them, as any longer in the fridge there is a danger you will eat them all!
