On a longer hike, run or ski, sometimes you need a lil’ more energy to reach your destination. While pre-packaged bars are convenient, we've got a high-adventure snack you can easily make to take on your trek.
These nut and seed bars pack up well and are full of energy to give you the power to persevere. Nutritionally rich, they make a fantastic fuel source for the middle of your long run or bike ride when you need a lil’ something-something. Dates are high in simple sugars (glucose and sucrose) and will power you up when eaten during prolonged intense activity. When eaten after, they can help you recover quickly.
Power up high-adventurers!
Optional flavours and nutritious add-ins:
1. Use a food processor to grind nuts into a fine meal. Add in seeds and coconut and grind into a fine meal.
2. Add other ingredients and add a few teaspoons of warm water (slowly and one at a time) if the mixture isn't sticking. This might happen if your dried fruit is extra dry.
3. Roll into 2 logs and wrap in plastic wrap and place in the freezer.
4. Keep logs in fridge or freezer and cut into rounds as needed to fuel you on outdoor or urban adventuring.
