Add Bi carb Soda and Vanilla. Mix to combine. Remove from the heat.

Remove the Peanut Caramel Mixture from the saucepan and pour it into the bowl with the rice mix.
Stir the Caramel Rice Mixture together and with your hands roll it into 12 bite size balls.

It is a fast easy trail running nutrition recipe. I can whip these up in about 10-15 minutes and they go fast. I made them for a run tomorrow and my kids and husband have already eaten them! Little buggers. I have to make some more.

For Long Runs I wrap them in aluminum foil and put them in a plastic zip lock bag.
