Here is an easy fruit, nut and seed flapjack recipe I make to fuel my long cycle rides. It can be used for any activity. It’s great for snacking on during exercise as it’s high in slow release carbohydrates and also contains some fat and fast acting sugars. It’s also perfect for post exercise as it is high in protein. I prefer to make my own as it you can alter the recipe to your taste, it’s cheap and really tasty.
