    homemade powerbars from foodnetwork

    http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/reci..._31336,00.html
    http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/reci..._31335,00.html

    they taste really good and are dirt cheap compared to store bought. They had all the number breakdowns on the show but they don't in the recipe.

    I tried to get into the site but couldn't

    MY personal recipe, free and non patented

    REAL p-nut Butter fresh made from the supermarket, no sugar no salt just p-nuts
    protein powder your choice
    honey
    oatmeal.......not the instant kind Quaker works fine or any supermarket generic

    Mix protein powder and oatmeal together first equal amounts
    add P-nut butter enuf to bind the first two together
    add enuf honey to make glop that is stiff but easy to mix all ingredients
    Use gloves hands work better than fork or spoon
    add raisins, nuts, cinnamon, or other thing u like for diff flavor

    spread about 1/2" thick in a flat pan chill for a few hours
    needs NO refridgeration, I took sev pounds on a bike trip to Europe last year, tasted great till it was gone
    Takes about 20 minutes ,no cooking, cheap and tastes way better than commercial types

    How about just rice crispie treats?
    You can add fruits, or nuts, or power gel as flavoring. And you get the same long chain carbs as the rice syrup that most gels are made of.

    Plus there's some fiber in your diet. An added plus if you don't like the gastronomic side effects of a solid fruit and gel diet.

    my quick recipe is:

    melt together in sauce pan:
    1/2 cup butter
    1/2 cup peanut butter
    3/4 cup honey

    Remove from heat, add 2 cup Protein Powder
    4 cups granola.

    Pour it all in a 9x9in pan, toss in the fridge.

    The quickest and easiest recipe. Most people have all the ingredients at home as it is.

    Real peanut butter means All natural peanut butter. None of the extra crap thats in jiffy. Straight peanuts and maybe a little salt. But thats pretty much it. The whole foods near me has honey peanut butter that you grind yourself MMMMMMMMMM.

    yeah he's a funny guy who knows a ton about food. He's not just the host of Good Eats, he co-writes all the episodes. He went to culinary school and everything so he knows his sh*t. That being said, he obviously (from just looking at him) doesn't eat very healthy. That show was a good one in the fact that he advocated eating healthy. The only thing I was dissappointed with was him using marshmallows for his brown rice krispie treats. I know I know, rice krispie treats have marshmallows, but all that refined sugar..eek.

    I made those last night and they are very good! The fruit makes all the difference.

    Funny thing is i spend close to 70 bucks at Whole Foods just to get the ingredients to make the rice cripsy squares and protein bars. The Flax Seed oil was easily the most expensive item on the list. Of course alot of this expenditure is bulk items. The only single use item i got was the 12.4 oz pkg of Silken Tofu. Time will tell if its really cheaper to make than store bought, but if the rice crispy squares are any indication, the taste and palitablity is worth the expense.

    go here and search for each item. It may take a while but you'll get a good idea of the nutritional data. Or you could buy that episode of Good Eats (he gives the info for the bars but not the rice krispies).

    Look at some of the mega-chain supermarkets for bulk foods section. Winco sells most of the items in bulk and they are cheap. There isn't a whole foods in my area but last time I was in sacramento I shopped there and it was incredibly expensive(damn yuppie shoppers driving up the prices)

    Those rice crispy treats go down good on a ride. They get nice and soft in the back pocket of the jersey. I wrap them in Reynolds non-stick foil so its easy to get unwrapped on the move.

    I finally made the protein bars on Friday and tried them out on a brutal 65 mile ride on Saturday. They taste great. But, while i'm quite sure they helped get me home, they are not ideal on the bike food. They are too heavy and very hard to eat. I didnt get sick from them or cramps, but they require lots of fluids to get them down. Best to leave them for a post ride snack and keep the rice cripsy treats for an on the bike food.

    Flax seed oil from organic stores a hi price rip off to me IMO(no humbling here thank you). either buy flax seeds in grocery dept many supermarkets and add whole to get added fiber, or sometimes supermarkets will have flax seed oil near rice depts. I have seen it in Publix stores in FLA for 1/4 price
    I leave in 3 weeks to do KILI and plan to take sev pounds of my own glop mixture with me.Sorta spread the word bout p-nut butter world wide

    I stay away from any cereal with sugar in it prefer to add raisin, nuts or honey

    Plus I don't have any aversion to using BUTTER the original, from the cows, type.
    Julia Child used it all her life and she was 92 and non alzheimer when she died, so..good enuf for her good enuf for me, ever tried croissants made with a substitute?
    Or an old fashioned pie crust? or Bananas Foster? gotta have the real thing

    End of current rant
