My next race is creeping up on me which means it’s definitely time to start practicing the long ride nutrition. I don’t want a poorly stomach to affect me again this year, so I really need to find some snacks that work for me! I am yet to try these on a ride, but they are delicious as an afternoon snack! These are raw so they are nice and easy to make in big batches, they’re also vegan friendly and of course, gluten free.
- 250g chickpeas (I used a 400g can and that was i’s drained weight)
- 50g ground almonds
- 50g coconut
- 70g almond butter
- 25g maple syrup (or date syrup, honey)
- 40ml almond/coconut milk
- 3tbsp. maca
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
Simply blend up all of the ingredients and roll into balls… I got about 22 out of this mixture, but it’s up to you how big/small you want to make them! Put them in the freezer for 2 hours to firm, before transferring to the fridge.
