Bakes Cycle Snacks Recipes Sweet

Peanut butter and pretzel vegan bites

Simple tasty homemade cycle snacks – sweet, salty and simple to make.

I’m always looking for something new to snack on while riding and my stomach seems to react to most shop bought bars unfortunately.

This is a really simple cycling snack, and if you love salty and sweet they’re perfect for you.

You just need to melt, mix, press and bake.


  • 120g crunchy peanut butter
  • 100g dark brown sugar
  • 1 banana
  • 80g golden syrup
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 100g oats
  • 50g pretzels broken up
  • 15 almonds


  • Put the oven on at 160c.
  • Line a 20×20 tray with baking parchment.
  • Melt the peanut butter, sugar and golden syrup in a pan over a medium heat.
  • While it melts, put the banana in a bowl and mash up with a fork.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and the melted butter and sugars and then mix together.
  • Pour the mixture into the tray and press down with the fork, until it’s flat and compacted.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, then remove and allow to cool completely before removing from the tray and cut into squares.
