Road Ready Endurance Bites

Making your own portable fuel for workouts is easy and tastier than most pre-packaged snacks. While training may take away from valuable family time, prepping and preparing energy bars for the week’s workouts doesn’t have to. Here’s a quick recipe packed with natural energy, fruit goodness and protein.

Ingredients

2 cups dates
1 cup water
1 cup old fashioned oats
2 cups brown rice crisps
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped, salted mixed nuts
½ cup dried cherries
½ cup dark chocolate chips
½ cup chia seed
½ cup vanilla protein powder

Directions

Simmer dates and water over low heat till dates are soft (about 20 minutes). Place date mixture in blender and pulse till dates become a smooth paste. Mix together remaining dry ingredients in a 9×13 pan. Using a spatula, mix date paste with dry ingredients. Add a few teaspoons of warm water if mixture is too dry. Press the mixture into the pan and let sit overnight before cutting into bars.
