First introduced to this recipe by my Sister, as she is always looking out for my calorie intake, I have begun to consistently travel to races with 'Travel Bombs'
I'll often find myself in a jam on the plane these days as free food is non-existent and sometimes the 1hr drive from the airport to the hotel can be agony. This is where having a couple of these in my carry-on can be the difference between feeling good and having my stomach digest itself.
I just made a batch of these 10mins ago. The recipe is from the White Water Cooks - at home Book with an adjusted title.
1 C Sunflower seeds
1C Sesame seeds
1C Rolled Oats

2C Peanut Butter
1C Coconut toasted

Simply put everything in a big bowl, mix, roll into small bombs and roll in coconut.
I was interested to see how many calories get packed into one of these guys, so I went onto FitDay.
300 Cals as: Fat (51%) Carbs (40%) Protein (9%) % by calories
18g Fat, 33g Carbo, 8g Protein
At a avg. Volume of 4.19 cubic inches these boys pack 72 cals per cubic inch.
When baggage security asks you what the hell is that? Tell em they're the BOMB!
