Homemade Energy Bars for Backcountry Skiing


Post by WildSnow.com blogger | January 4, 2007      

Our trip up Mount Sopris was the perfect opportunity to try out Matisse & Jack’s Homemade Energy Bars. They are an energy bar mix that you bake like a batch of brownies. They weren’t quite as tasty as our Christmas stash of Enstrom’s Almond Toffee but nutritionally are much more balanced. The bars contain less sugar than other energy bars and are a good source of protein, iron and calcium. During our 17 mile Sopris trek, they were the only thing I ate and I give them credit for the high level of energy I had throughout the day. They were easy to digest and the Cranberry Walnut bars had a nice aftertaste. Overall, they receive a thumbs up from the Dawson family and we’ll use them again.
