One goal I have as an ultrarunner is finding ways to fuel my body in the most natural way while training and competing. I have had success using Clif Shot Bloks, and Honey Stinger, but after 40 miles of running my body craves “real food”. I decided to create energy bites that will help fuel my body while I train.

These bites take about 20 minutes to prepare and can be eaten right away, placed in the refrigerator to eat later or even placed in the freezer so you can take them out with you for a workout. They are delicious and will give you the needed energy and focus to complete your workout. They can also be eaten as an everyday snack.
