Spackle needs a new name.
Irish Horse is right. Spackle is not a good term for what promises to be the most delicious thing I've ever been able suck down in the saddle.
Except apple sauce. But applesauce doesn't have protein, and similarly to "man can not live by bread alone:, I can guarantee you that this endurance rider cannot live on applesauce only for 50 or a 100 miles.
For those of you that missed the recipe tucked into the bottom of a previous post here it is - make a batch and give me your best name for this wonderful substance (that I will admit to eating for breakfast this morning).
1 c. almond butter (Winco lets you grind your own in the bulk section, which made it more affordable).
1c. cashew butter (I couldn't find, so I bought unsalted raw cashew pieces and ground them to smithereens in my food processor)
1/4 c. almond oil (Ha! Couldn't find this either so I used a soy or
vegetable oil with minimal taste - thought about using coconut oil, but
didn't - but I might next time)
1/2 c. Agave syrup (I used honey - because I wanted more flavor, not just for it to be sweet)
1 Tbl vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract (I didn't add because I didn't have)
Salt - to taste
Mix in a blender
Once I had it all mixed up, I separated into 4 bags so I could experiment with "additives".
- 1 bag I kept as original
- Added white chocolate chips and dried cranberries to 1 baggie
- added miniature chocolate chips and miniature marshmallows to another
- added coco powder and miniature chocolate chips to the last baggie.
