Rice Energy Bar Recipe

Simon Goland


I recently stumbled upon an interesting recipe, which I tried during the last 300 ride. Here it is:

- 1 cup medium grain rice, cooked in 1 cup/250 ml water
- 4 tbsp wild rice
- 1 cup organic granola

- 1/2 cup each: chopped cashews and chopped dried apricots
- 4 tbsp each: raisins and chopped dried dates

- 1/2 cup each: all-purpose flour and packed brown sugar (personally, I use a lot less sugar)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 ml salt pinch
- 3 tbsp butter, melted
- 2 eggs, beaten, or 3 egg whites
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup maple syrup

- 1 tbsp sesame seeds
- 1 tbsp flaxseed

Cook rice according to package directions. In a large bowl, mix together medium and wild rice, granola, cashews, apricots, raisins, dates and flaxseed.

In small bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt; stir into rice mixture.

In separate bowl, combine butter, eggs, and vanilla; stir into rice mixture until well combined, using hands if necessary.

Press into 10 1/2" X 15" (26 cm X 38 cm) baking pan; stop with maple syrup and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake in 325F (160C) over for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool and cut into squares. Wrap each bar until needed or freeze.

And then watch yourself finish the brevets in half the time...
