Jaskiewicz energy bars

  •  4 cups oats
  • 4 cups cereal
  • 1 cup each filler (nuts, raisins, chocolate chips, etc.)
  • 2 cups sweetener/binding agent (corn syrup if you’re a cash-strapped bike racer, maple syrup if you live in New England, and agave nectar or brown rice syrup if you shop at Whole Foods)
  • 1 ½ cups peanut butter
  • salt to taste

Heat the sweetener and peanut butter over medium and combine the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the heated sweetener mix, pour into a large square pan, and let it cool.

I slice each batch up into 2-inch-by-2-inch squares, each of which delivers about 250 calories and 40 grams of carbs, a perfect dose of energy for 60 minutes on the bike.

  • Makes 20 cookies, 1 serving: 45 calories, 1.4 g fat, 2 g protein, 9 g carbohydrates, 0mg cholesterol, 2 g fiber, 32 mg sodium
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¹⁄³ cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1 cup canned white cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tbsp light agave syrup
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1½ cups granulated artificial sweetner
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate-covered cacao nibs
  • ¼ cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375˚F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and spray lightly with cooking spray. Set aside.

In the bowl of a food processor, combine vanilla, cocoa, cannellini beans, and the agave syrup, and blend the mixture until smooth, about 3 minutes, scraping down the side of the bowl halfway through blending.

In the bowl of a mixer fitted with a whip attachment, beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Gradually beat in the artificial sweetner. Continue to beat the whites until they are creamy and nearly stiff. Add 1/3 of the egg-white mixture to the cocoa bean mixture in the food processor. Blend to combine, for about 30 seconds. In 2 batches, fold the lightened cocoa mixture into the egg whites until they are almost fully combined. Add cacao nibs to the batter. Fold batter until cacao nibs are evenly dispersed and cocoa mixture is completely incorporated.

Drop mounded spoonfuls of batter onto the prepared sheets. Spread batter out to form cookies about 2½ inches in diameter. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the cookies.

Bake for 20 minutes, rotating the pans one turn halfway through baking. Using a metal spatula, transfer cookies to wire racks to cool.

Butternut Squash with Cranberries:

  • Dice/cube butternut squash and set aside.
    Dice red onion and put in a skillet with pressed/diced garlic and olive oil.
    Heat over medium until garlic and onions are sauteed, then add the diced butternut squash and coconut milk (1/2-1 can depending on how much squash you’ve got).
    Add curry and cinnamon as desired (we like a lot of both)
    Put a lid on the pan to cook down for usually 25+ minutes depending how “done” you like the squash. Ours usually becomes pretty mushy.
    Once near done add in Craisins as desired and serve!
