As trail runners we’re on the go a lot! We run a dozen miles in the mountains, change in the parking lot, and slip into work as most people are starting their first cup of coffee. These “gnarly bars” are a great pre-run, post-run, or mid-run snack to keep you moving when you’re on the go.
2 cups natural (unsweetened) peanut butter
2 1/4 cups Gnarly Nutrition chocolate whey
3 cups oats (blend into flour optional after measuring)
1 cup slivered almonds
1/3 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup agave
1 cup water
Add all ingredients except the water to mixer and mix. Slowly add in up to 1 cup of water. Press into 9×13 pan, cover and refrigerate.
For a mid-run or pre-run version, use 1 cup of honey and 1/2 cup water instead of the listed agave and water for a higher-carb version.
