Natural Goodness

Just like our team name, there are all sorts of ways to add natural goodness to your diet and cycling nutrition needs.

Two of our team members, Scott and Ray, have volunteered two home-made recipes that will power your next ride and save you some hard-earned cash. The true beauty of any of these recipes is controlling the ingredients in the bars you are eating and customizing them to your tastes and needs. Bon Appetit!

Here’s the recipes for Scott’s Energy Bars (courtesy of his wife):


High Protein Peanut Butter Apricot Energy Bars
Ray’s note: The recipe is as follows, I made my own modifications – I personally think using honey makes it a bit more sweet but I like agave better…
(agave comes for cactus – not bee’s)

1 cup Natural Peanut Butter (creamy or smooth)  (I used Almond Butter!)
1 cup of Honey – (I used Agave)
1 cup Old Fashioned Oatmeal
1 cup Diced Apricots
1 cup Almonds (I used slivered almonds)
3 Scoops Vanilla Protein Powder (I used Max Muscle protein powder, but I also like Jay Robb products as well)
Cinnamon to taste (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a medium size pot, heat Honey & Peanut Butter on stove medium heat until texture is runny
  2. Mix in Apricots, Nuts, Oatmeal, and Protein Powder
  3. Stir until all ingredients are well coated
  4. Grease a 9×9 pan with fat free non-stick spray (I actually put foil in the pan so it is easier to get out)
  5. Press in ingredients evenly
  6. Cool in fridge for at least an hour
  7. Slice & wrap individual bars in foil or plastic wrap and freeze
