You may note that there are no dairy products in this recipe. You could easily replace the soy milk powder with the cow equivalent, but then you'd definitely have to include some maltodextrin (unless you use a soy drink which already has some in it when riding). One could replace about half the honey with maltodextrin, and if you prefer cocoa to carob, you can easily substitute.

1 cup Oat Bran
1/2 cup Toasted Sunflower and/or Sesame seeds, ground (use a food processor)
1/2 cup Soy Milk Powder
1/2 cup Raisins
2 tablespoons Carob Powder

Mix well, then add to:

1/2 cup Brown Rice, Cooked and Minced (using a food processor again)
1/2 cup Peanut Butter (more or less, depending on consistency)
1/2 cup Honey (if it's too viscous, try heating it or adding some water)

Stir and knead (I knead in more Oat Bran or Rolled Oats) until thoroughly mixed. A cake mixer works well for this. The bars can be reasonably soft, as a night in the fridge helps to bind it all together. Roll or press out about 1cm thick and cut. This recipe makes 16 bars of about 1 cm tall by 1.5 cm wide by 6 cm long.
