Here is a recipe for "Energy Balls" by Joseph Bank. I found it in the March
issue of Bicycling magazine.
24 Dried Figs 1/3 cup Honey
4 tbsp Orange Juice 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
1 tsp Lemon Juice 2 1/2 cups unbleacher flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1 tbsp Applesauce 1/2 cup Dark Corn Syrup
2 Egg Whites 1 cup Oat Bran
Add figs, honey, orange juice, and 2 tbsp lemon juice to food
processor and mix on "chop" until fig bits are finely cut. Set aside.
Put all other ingredients (except oat bran) in mixing bowl. Beat
with an electric mixer 3 - 4 minutes at medium speed. Add fig mixture and
beat until everything blends. Roll 20 - 24 balls and coat with oat bran
poured on a plate. Place balls on a pan and bake at 350 deg. for 10 minutes,
or until they are warm and a bit puffy. Place in a refrigerator to harden.
For a crunchier texture, bake 2 - 5 minutes longer, or until dough is
