Adam’s Quinoa Energy Bars

Our friend Adam is super awesome. He is an amazing photographer, awesome trail running, cycler, mountain biker, and aspiring mountaineer. He is a great cook, awesome in the back country and very artistic. (And ladies… he’s single!) Anyways, enough of the Adam pump up… he made these super sick awesome delcious quinoa energy bars and shared them with me on our trail run. They were DELICIOUS! They are loaded with nutrients and not too sticky to eat while running. They have a high carb content which makes them perfect for ramping on the energy on long runs. And plus, sometimes it’s nice to have some real food on a run instead of eating power bars and energy jels!
