Don’t miss out on the latest CyclingTips updates.
So I’m not one to Instagram my food usually, but my latest batch of ride food gave me some inspiration to join the crowd of athletes who share their diet over social media. Once it was posted I received many requests for the recipe, so I decided to share it.
I don’t tend to follow recipes to the letter, so bear with me on this one. Once I have a craving or idea in my head I like to google similar recipes until I find one similar enough to match what I am after and then customise it. I also live with a mostly gluten-free diet (for digestion problems) and like to avoid using too much sugar or processed foods. Sometimes I have to google a few more just to cross-reference ingredients and methods so I don’t stuff up too much! I don’t use measuring tools either as I find it nice to cook by feel and personal taste.
Here is my recipe for the Gluten-Free “Salted Caramel” Pecan Brownie
Cooking notes: To achieve more of a cake than a brownie, add more rice flour and some baking soda. I also sprinkled some of the unground pink rock salt on the top to make it look pretty!
Hopefully you have some success recreating this recipe. I take no responsibility with my directions or measurements! Let me know if you’d like to know more of my favourite ride snacks and meal ideas, and I will try to get a better record of how I make them on the next go-around.
