As the story goes, Skratch Labs whipped up some cookies for the crowds at Tour of California and the riders ended up pocketing some to nibble on between rice cakes. They took a look at the nutritional profiles and found the treats were at least as good as most energy bars, so why not offer them up for any ride?
Available as a kit that just requires one egg and a stick of butter to make, the mix can be tailored to fit your own tastes by mixing in fruit, nuts, chocolate chips or whatever. It’s enough to make one 9″ square pan of “bars” or a standard cookie sheet’s worth of cookies. Ingredients and more details below…
Unlike the rice cakes, these are not gluten free. And we’d like to see a non-aluminum based baking powder. Otherwise, it’s a clean ingredient list, and certainly better than the prepackaged, ready-to-bake cookie dough tubes from the grocery store. We’ll be cooking up our sample box to fuel us through the NCCX double header finals at Biltmore this coming weekend.
It’ll be available at SkratchLabs.com on January 15 and in dealers shortly thereafter. At $8.50 per box, it’s aimed at the novice cook that just wants to quickly whip something up and jump on the bike.
