Hi all,
I've been trying to get away from packaged nutrition products for my rides due to the price, packaging, and gut rot. I have begun making different bars but none have worked well for me. I tired a few of the Skratch Labs rice cakes, but they either came out too dry and crumbly or they didn't hold together at all depending on the variety. I have also tried the EF Pro Cycling rice cake, but it uses cream cheese as a binder and the fat didn't agree with me at all during long rides.
I'm looking for something that's portable and easy to eat on the go as I do a lot of mixed surface rides where nutrition is key. Nutrition density is also important because I don't have much pocket space on longer (4-6hr) rides.
Thanks in advance for your recipes and ideas.

For me it's a price thing! I ride endurence mtb so 6+hr days and 100k single speed gravel+road rides and I found a good recipie here, https://www.triathlete.com/nutrition/recipes/4-make-energy-bar-recipes/

I use the peanut butter ones and they pack a real punch for calories. Usually 1 4x4x1 bar is a whole hour of intermediate intensity riding for me (I usually eat 3000 cal plus a day just to fend off hunger)

Price is definitely a factor for me as well, I just forgot to mention it as I haven't had to shell out a crazy amount of money for Gus recently. Those look awesome! I'll definitely try them

I make batches of oatcakes and rice cakes and freeze them. Last weekend I made a batch of oats, honey, nuts and dried fruit( often do with fresh blueberries), mix together and bake for 15 mins, and rice cakes, cook rice (I used cocnut milk but plain boiled rice will do) and mix with some brown sugar, dry fruit, cinnamon and leave to set.

I buy bulk dried figs at Whole Foods. They are pretty much all sugar with a little fiber to give you put down the hunger pains. No cooking required. Avoid dried figs or fruit that have been preserved with sulfur dioxide, eat too much of that and you will be fertilizing bushes.
