Crunchy Granola Bars

These crunchy granola bars are perfect as an afternoon snack before training or as something that will give you some energy (and carbohydrates) straight after training.

The bars can also be eaten as an afternoon snack when you need extra energy or in the morning to get you started. It is important to have a regular intake of energy to ensure that your blood sugar is constant. If you don’t, you might feel fatigued. The risk is then that you eat something unhealthy just to get that extra energy fast.

Peanut Power Bars

These peanut power bars are perfect before, during, or after training. They are packed with carbohydrates and protein, as well as sodium and fats, so are ideal for an active lifestyle. You can add some protein powder (soy, whey, or whatever you prefer) in place of the seeds if you want more protein as well.

They are really delicious, and you can alter the flavours by changing a few of the ingredients. Another nice touch is to melt some chocolate and drizzle that on top, or dip one end of each bar in the melted chocolate and allow to set – sometimes you need that extra sugar kick! 😀 Continue reading

They will give you energy quickly and at the same time give you something really nice to eat. We make them to take on our long rides and since tomorrow we have a planned 100 km ride we made them today to bring with us tomorrow. Continue reading

Gluten-Free Vegan Flapjack

Flapjack is an ideal snack, whether it be to have with a cup of tea or an on-the-go breakfast. And this recipe makes a delicious flapjack that is gluten free, vegan, and delicious! 😀

The recipe is incredibly quick, and the thing that takes the longest time is waiting for it to cool once it comes out the oven. You can easily adapt the recipe as well, to suit your own tastes or to vary things a little if you make them regularly. Continue reading

Corn Pucks with Roasted Beetroots and Potatoes

These corn pucks are incredibly delicious, and are something Jason had at a few lunch buffets at his work. After eating so many of them, he had to have the recipe so we could make them at home, and this is it 🙂

These pucks are great as the main part of a dinner, like we had tonight, or as a snack to have during your day, at a picnic, or even on the bike! You can adapt it as you like, to add different spices, but we think the original (from Chef Sofie Göransson) is still the best. Continue reading

Scones

These scones are perfect as a part of a nice brunch or just something to eat for breakfast. They are very quick to make and you can use different types of flour. Today I used whole wheat flour and graham flour. Swedes like to eat their scones with butter, jam or cheese, but you can eat them however you want 🙂 Continue reading
