Nut Bar

After two nice days of riding in Ellicottville, NY (there's some pretty great road and mountain biking there), I jetted it back to the Toronto airport to catch a plane back to Calgary. Due to my lack of planning I decided just to take a taxi home from the airport...bad was over $10 before I even left the airport grounds....and it cost my freakin $60.....crazy....and I even had to hold the door open to the trunk while the driver unloaded my bags because it was busted...baaaah.

So today I unpacked, did laundry, repacked....haha, I see I cycle forming here. Managed to squeeze in a dry ride in there and made a nut square for the TR...yumi

1 cup toasted almonds
1 cup pecans
1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cup sunflower seeds

blend in food processor

1 tsp cinnamon
2 cup oats
2 tsp flax seed

add to food processor and blend

1 cup dates
1 cup dried apricot
1/2 cup raisins

add and blend

1 apple

add and blend

1 cup of melted honey

...add while processing

flatten onto backing sheet and put in the freezer over night....soooo good.

Saturday we're leaving for Panorama and Sunday the Transrockies starts.
