This recipe was modified from original at thugkitchen.com.  It is so simple but full of flavor! It is our favorite way to get some gluten-free carbs before a race or long ride. 

This weekend we are testing it out while camping in Hayward, WI. We are heading north to pre-ride the Chequamegon course. Wish me luck on all those hill repeats 🙂
