>> Best eaten cool (if you can wait that long...!)
We tested them out on a hike recently and they are pretty durable and did the trick of a quick boost of energy on the trails. But taste good anytime.
These are great for a snack before, during or after your run, hike or ride outside or your indoor climb training, turbo sessions, resistance training.
These are so versatile you can mix up the ingredients to your preference.
use almond flour, coconut flour or white flour
nutmeg/mixed spices/vanilla extract
