The recipe looks great but...I've got to agree with mick. Looks like work. Or maybe I'll buy a Clif bar (gotta love those ads with the dad who thought his son had lost it until he named the bars after the old man).<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

I like clif bars, too, but that can get very expensive, and they are made in the U.S.A. I like to bake, so it's not work for me to prepare a batch of something. I know most people like to bring chocolate along, but I can't have very much chocolate, so I'll bring something nutritious to keep the energy levels up.

I'm guessing that fudgee-o is a cooky similar to oreo. If you are eating those for energy, do you find that your energy peaks and crashes? Just curious.

thanks for posting the recipe, Bikerider. I'm going to print it out and try it.

Cliff Bars are pretty good (depending on which you buy, I really like the Carrot Cake). But they do add up pretty quick, and one problem my wife and I have with them is they do not use organic ingredients. With recipes like this, we can get something very similar, using bulk ingredients of our choice.

Well,I also pack granola bars,Powerbars,Powergels,sesame snaps,etc.I think the Fudgee-Os on their own might not be enough.I use them when I just begin to get tired.Oreos are pretty good too.Errrr...time to grab a snack!

Hey, I tried these and they are great! Moist and chewy. Next time I will try adding the egg all at once, as beating the whites makes the cookies a little fragile and crumbly. I got 36 cookies (not 30), and figured them out to be about 84 calories each, with lots of "good" fat.

I'm glad you liked them. When I had them at a friend's place I thought they were great.
Perhaps I will also try not separating the eggs and make a comparison.
