Transfer mixture to a 25 x 15 cm baking tin lined with parchment.

Press down firmly with a masher or similar then

Place in a fan oven at 160 degrees for 10 – 15 minutes, keeping an eye on them so they don’t get over done.

Now this is the hard part!! 

Allow the mixture to cool for around 3 hours (sorry), but goodness comes to those who wait!!

Once cooled, carefully use a sharp knife to cut the mixture in squares.

Wrap in foil, pop in your back pouch and enjoy on your ride.. remember, on long rides eat something every 45 minutes!!
