Bicycle Bars!

Submitted by: RICHARD!


Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    12 oz mixed dried fruit (raisins, sultanas, currants, candied peel etc.)
    1 fruit tea bag (any flavour)
    10 fluid oz of boiling water
    1 medium egg
    1 oz unrefined caster sugar
    5 oz porage oats (oatmeal)
    5 oz oat bran

Directions

Really easy to make and although the prep time is a couple of hours that is really only soaking time after less then five minutes of actual work. In fact you could set things soaking and go to work, coming home to finish off the baking whilst preparing the evening meal.

In a mixing bowl, make the fruit tea with boiling water and the fruit tea bag, add the fruit.

Leave to soak for at least 2 hours.
Beat the egg and thoroughly stir it into the mixture then stir in 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 30 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 7 cuts equally spaced to leave you with 16 bars of 106 calories each.

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...
