When you exercise for longer than an hour, a carbohydrate-rich snack, such as energy balls, can help your muscles maintain a good level of energy. These are easy to transport, resist the cold and are easy to handle with gloves. To avoid them getting too hard due to the cold, keep them in your coat’s inside pocket rather than outside pocket. They also provide a good amount of protein which will satiate you for longer. This is also a good choice for a post-workout snack.
