Interesting stuff on last podcast?!
Peanut butter? Still nut-based, but more palatable. Flapjacks made with sunflower oil? Muffins made with rapeseed oil/sunflower oil?
I think most of the ultra nutrionists also recommend that ultra runners take on board fat while they are running, hence the cheese/meat/avocado/peanut butter wraps and sarnies that appear at aid stations. From what I recall, the reason for this is that the brain requires fat to keep functioning and this runs out after 35-odd miles.
Ultrarunnerpodcast.com has some very good podcasts on this subject with the wonderfully named nutritionist Sunny Blende. They can be downloaded from iTunes.

Ha yes I remember you talk at Pilgrims Challenge - chips are good but don't know I could cope with running after eating a burger. Guess it's just finding what works - good excuse to eat lots (and run lots of course!)Tried some breakfast bars but too chewy to eat on the run, muffins next. Rice pudding?
