Cranberry Pecan Energy Bars
No baking involved in this recipe- simply blend the first half of the ingredients, fold the cranberries, pecans and pumpkin seeds and refrigerate for 2 hours and you’re good to go.
I road tested these on the bike and stashed them in my top bar bag bag and they were super easy to munch, digest and they taste DELICIOUS.
Make a batch of these and keep them in the fridge in an airtight container for 2-4 weeks although I absolutely guarantee they won’t last that long!
