Mueslitaler Sports Power Cookies

My husband goes on a hike in the Swiss Alps any chance he gets.  He’s also a member of the SAC (Swiss Alpine Club), and their beautiful, glossy magazine tides him over until he can go once again.  The following recipe was in their magazine, Die Alpen, August 2012, and I’ve translated it for you.  If you’re not sure about the conversions, just go to Google and type in “gram to ounce conversion” – it will pop up a handy conversion calculator!  These babies are packed full of energy for hikes; I made some for my hubby’s hike this past autumn; they were a hit, they hold up well in a backpack, and they can last (and last); a little goes a long way!
