  1. Wow thanks for this recipe! 🙂 I have almost all ingredients home and will try this probably today or tomorrow, it’s ideal food for my cycling activities.

      1. Yes, they will not travel with me, but will be used as a “fuel” and then on my bike. I think i can get some 2-2.5 hours of uphill mountain biking with few of these before :). Based on my experience with fueling with 3 bananas and peanut butter.
