Fresh air, gorgeous views and mile after mile of rugged but walkable wilderness — there are few forms of exercise more enticing than a hike along beautiful mountain trails. It’s good for the body, mind and spirit.

Or it would be, if you weren’t nibbling a high-sugar, additive-laden, uber-expensive, storebought energy bar — or what Camilla V. Saulsbury calls “a peanut butter sponge with a chocolate Ex-lax-like coating.” You can do better than that, says the author of “Power Hungry: The Ultimate Energy Bar Cookbook” (Lake Isle Press, $16.95, 150 pages). It takes less than half an hour to make several dozen bars. You can store them in the freezer, fridge or backpack. And the difference in taste, texture and cost is pretty shocking.
