made some date and nut energy bars the other week using the "hungry cyclist's' recipe (http://www.thehungrycyclist.com/blog/cycling-recipes/).
have only managed a couple of rides in the past week and of no significant length (30/40 miles) so they haven't really been put through a good test, but they are tasty and make an excellent on road snack..
and so far i reckon they work out about 30/40p each.
so all in all good stuff...anyone else know of some good recipes?

Lovely, made these this week- much better than the £1 plus bars in the shops which are basically a flattened version of this.

last lot i made i substituted the dates for figs and added some grated chocolate (70% cocoa solids stuff).. not bad and far to easy to eat!

After spending a fortune on energy drinks I decided to make my own:

1 part OJ (makes no difference apart to price if pure or concentate) to 3 - 4 parts of water and add about a pinch of salt per litre to replace what you loose through sweat.
