15oz Oats. 13oz of nuts, berries, spices, whatever you fancy. 6oz honey/syrup, 4oz butter, pinch of salt. Mix the dry ingredients, heat the wet ingredients and mix everything. Press into a baking tray and cook for 25min. Leave in tray to cool for at least 30min, while still warm, (after about 10/15min mark out 'cuts' for bars).
If you have a very sweet tooth, you could also 'fleck', stripe, cover half or all with chocolate.
1 cup Peanut Butter, (I like 'chunky'). Quarter to half cup Honey/Maple/ Golden Syrup, or a mix, or something else you like. 3 cups dry Oats/corn flakes/rice crispies. I like Oats. Then add what you like, I add mixed nuts, raisins, berries, mixed peel, spices, basically what ever I have in cupboard.
Mix everything over a low heat, until well coated, if 'stiff' add a teaspoon of honey, etc. but keep mix "dry". Press into the like of a baking tray and put in fridge. When cold cut into bars, wrap in waxed paper or Clingfilm, put in plastic bags. You can freeze if required, but can keep to a month or more without storing in fridge when wrapped and in plasy bag.
"Hope you are getting your gear all sorted for your big trip Husky"
Big trip, I'm only away for a week and will be returning to car each morning to move to a different place. So I only need to carry one 'full' days food.
Well, possibly apart from when I get to the Mournes. I may camp for 2 or 3 nights, their. all depends on what the weather is like in Donegal. One of the Mtns I hope to do is Slieve League, but in windy weather it is very "dodgy". The route is along a ridge, very narrow in places, (One Mans Pass and a couple of other bits) and follows the edge of the highest sea cliffs in Ireland, 3.000ft +. I have done it a good few times, so if weather is bad, I can come back and try again.
That reminds me I must make a load of 'energy' bars, and think what meals to take.
Evening, Head torch test threw up some surprises, The two I found best are the cheapest, Both costing £15.
They are, Benex ET-0238 Multicolour LED. Alpkit model from OM test. Of the two I think the Alpkit is the better one, because of it's zoom feature.
Orrible dry day, but breezy, 20-40mph, 7.1c.
Went for another 'test' today, loaded a 'sack with 9kg of weight, add drinking water, bit of food, for me and dugs, 11kg. According to 'tracker', we covered 31.3mls. 'sack weighed 9.7kg at end. I feel fine, apart from usual aches and pains, went a wee bit far for other dugs, We had to stop @ every half hour for last 6mls to let them rest and recover........... Ooopss. I don't think I need to "award a prize" for what 'state' SOD finished in.........................
