Homemade Nutrition

We've been experimenting with a number of recipes. These energy bars are good one for long rides and as a pre training snack. For long rides just wrap them in cling film or foil straight from the freezer and stick them in your back pocket and they hold together really well. Give them a go and see what you think…


Raw Espresso Energy Bars


10 Medjool dates (seed removed)

3 shots of espresso

2/3 cup almonds

1/3 cup pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup almond meal

1/2 - 3/4 cup raw cacao

2 tbsp coconut oil



- Soak dates in the espresso for 10 minutes or so

- Blitz the almonds and pumpkin seeds in a food processor

- Add the date mixture and blitz again

- Add remaining ingredients and blitz until it all comes together (if it's too wet just add a bit more almond meal) 

- Line a medium sized baking dish with cling film and scrape mixture in, flattening it out so it’s about an inch or so high (you could also roll them into balls but I find that takes too long and I don’t have the patience to bother)

- Put it in the freezer for about 10 minutes and then slice into little bars or squares

- Leave them in the freezer over night then break then up and they are ready to eat

- Store them in the freezer
