If you've ever done a 12 hour bike race or a long adventure race, you'd know that gels can only remain appetizing for so long. After a half day of slurping down semi-liquid nutrition products, you'll crave something that you can chew. Honey Stinger Energy Bars "feel" more like normal food, but they offer all of the easy-to-digest attributes of Honey Stinger Energy Gel. Honey is nature's energy food. The bees that produce it have done the difficult work of transforming it into a just right blend of simple sugars that are easily and quickly digestible for us. This blend of glucose and fructose is 1:1 in honey and is the same as the fruit we eat. That's why honey is such a great endurance nutrition product -- it won't upset your stomach as you eat and continue on with your exertion.Honey Stinger Energy Bars are made of at least 30% honey and offer 20% of your Daily allowance of protein along with 22 vitamins and minerals, calcium, and antioxidants. They come in a box of 15 bars and are available in four flavors -- Apple Cinammon, Berry Banana Buzz, Peanut Butter 'n Honey, and Rocket Chocolate.

I couldn't find a more appropriate forum to post in so I put it here, but please feel free to more this if I've missed something.

They have energy bars that help you build your VO2 max, your lean muscle and even loose weight, but the freeride market has been ignored until now. I found these at the super market last week and have been dying to try one.

I'm looking to make some homemade bars for performance and/or recovery, and am having a hard time finding recipes that aren't just from some random website.
Does anyone have a recipe they've used that they would care to share? If you want to post power gel, or recovery drink recipes too, I'm sure t ... Read More »
