Power Bars (Home Made)

Submitted by: RICHARD!


Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    Cranberries, dried, sweetened (craisins) 4oz
    Apricots, dried 4oz
    *Dried Cherries 4oz
    Fruit Tea any flavour, 10 fl oz
    Egg, fresh, 1 medium
    Granulated Sugar 1 tablespoon
    Flour, Self Raising (UK) 4oz
    Scott's Porage Oats Old Fashioned Thick Scottish-Milled Oats 4oz
    Ground Almonds or any other nuts ground fine 2oz

Directions

Make the fruit tea with boiling water let it steep for 7 minutes, meanwhile chop all the fruit up to the size of petit poids and place in a mixing bowl. Pour the tea over the chopped fruit and leave to soak for at least 2 hours.

Beat the egg and thoroughly stir it into the mixture then do the same with the sugar.

Fold in the rest of the dry ingredients.

Pour the mixture out into a lined baking tin 8 inches by 12 inches by 1 inch deep and smooth it out evenly.

Bake in a medium hot oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Allow to cool and then turn out onto a bread board.

Cut it once down the long centre then turn through 90 degrees and make five cuts to create six pairs of "bars".

This is a delicious bar to take on a bike ride. Slow release energy all the way to ensure you do not get an insulin rush and suddenly fatigue on a long ride. I take a bar per hour of riding and have enough energy to keep up a respectable pace even after 7 hours peddling...
