Whey to go

Whey energy bar cookies! Immensely pocketable. These kept me going
strong on our Christmas Eve ride down the coast.

Gluten Free Oats
Whey (leftover from making cheese or straining yogurt)
Dried fruit (I used dried Serendipity Farms plums)
Honey (above honey from friend Robert of City Bees)

Soak the oats in whey for 30 minutes or so. The oats will soak up most
of the liquid. Strain the oats and squeeze them lightly to remove excess
whey. Mix these with dried fruit of your choice and the remaining
ingredients. Add honey until you reach your desired sweetness.

Heat the oven to 250. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour
the mixture evenly on the paper and spread it flat. Bake for 30 minutes
and check on it. If the top is crusty, flip it to cook the bottom. Bake it for
another 30 minutes. The cookie should be pretty dry but still flexible.
Cut it into rectangles and store in the freezer. Bring a few cookies with
you on your next bike ride!
