I'm a bit too cheap to spend $1+ for a tiny packet of overly sweet stuff in a bio un degradable foil pouch (which I've see too many brethren heedlessly toss in the street) so I set out to find a recipe.
I came across a few and used them as inspiration for my own. Here it is. Please feel free to give it a try, and let me know if you have any improvements. I'll keep the recipe a bit "generic" so you can make as much or as little as you want at any given time.
3 parts natural honey (I like a dark honey)
3 parts natural peanut butter (Smucker's makes a nice one. Its the kind that you have to stir when you open it. Keeps the goo nice and fluid.
1 part dark molasses (cuts the sweetness)
1/16th part cinnamon more or less, to taste.
(You can add a little salt if you want. I carry electrolyte pills.)
Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Put the mixture in a squeeze bottle. Hammer makes a nice 5 oz squeeze bottle with a good size opening. I have 2. One for straight honey for short rides, and one for the goo when I need to "eat."
Refrigerate the left over stuff, and the bottles. There are no preservatives in this, so at the first sign of an off taste or smell, toss it and make new.
