I know someone has some recipies but here's this diversion for now.

Hmm. I'm trying to think of what kind of 'healthy' fat or fat like substance could be used as a binder
for said bars and am drawing a blank. SPecially a binder material that could survive massive summer heat, as
the sort we have this time of year in Texas.

Tiz why I dont' mess with bars, homemade or especially commercial junk. I' want to keep it simple and just make my own trail 'mix'. Based around peanuts, some sort of dried fruit that handles heat well, such as
the new dried cranberries they sell at local megamarts, some dried fried banana chips are tossed in the bag (sturdy zip lock type) as well.
If peanuts are not yiour cup of tea use cashews or something. Talk about hi calorie snacking too, your talking about 180 calories or more per 1/3 cup of material. Nut oils are good for the bod. Very good.

Sure, I could come up with a summer heat binder but I dunno how healthy it would be. I like my fats unhydrogenated..heh.

WEll, there is one binder I just thought of .. sugar. Melted into a syrup then allowed to dry around the
trail mix. You might grind it up some, toss in some oatmeal too. But being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic I avoid added sugars so have no ready to go recipe for that.

Me, I just go with the bag, Luke, Use the Baggie! Mix n match and it's easy to do, no muss, no fuss.

This recipe is from the wife of a guy I race with. They're great, at least I think so, and are perfect fuel for those long 5+ hour spring training rides. In cold weather they're a lot easier to down than a frozen Clif bar and taste better.
Enjoy!




*I use organic fruits, flax, flours, oats, etc. for these.



Preheat oven to 350.

Oil a 9 x 9 inch glass baking dish.



Mix together in a bowl:

cup of amaranth or whole-wheat flour

cup unbleached white flour

1 cup of oats

1cup ground flax seeds

cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda



Add some of the following:

Raisons, dried plumbs, apricots, nuts, coconut, dates, figs, cranberries, craisons, blueberries, apples, etc.



In a food processor blend together:

2-3 ripe bananas

3 tablespoons canola oil

1teaspoon vanilla extract

Add to dry mixture, stir.



Then add about 6-10 ounces of yogurt or kefir

If the mixture is still dry you can add more yogurt or maple syrup or some fruit juice (thick ones like pear or mango work best).

If you want them sweeter you could add some honey, sorgum or molasses.



Scoop the mixture into the baking dish.

Bake about 30 minutes.

I store them in the refrigerator.
