How good is a home-made muesli bar with no only natural sugars? This is a recipe you can get creative with and try many different combinations. I did 1 cup of oats, weetbix and bran flakes, ¾ C walnuts with ¼ cup almonds and ½ cup dried apricots with ½ cup sultanas. Ricies and cornflakes are also some favourites in this.
|3 Cups cereals. Try any combination or|
do 3 cups of the same cereal (oats, crushed weetbix, ricies, cornflakes, bran flakes)
|1 Cup dried fruit (apricots, sultanas, cranberries, apple, mango, pineapple)|
|1 Cup nuts (almonds, peanuts, hazelnuts, cashews, walnuts)||¼ Cup of both pumpkin and sunflower seeds|
|2T chia seeds||2T sesame seeds|
|1t poppy seeds||1/3 Cup peanut butter|
|1/3 Cup honey||1/4 Cup butter or coconut oil|
|Optional: ¼ Cup chocolate chips|
1. Prepare a slice tin or two loaf tins and line with baking paper. If using chocolate chips, scatter them over the baking paper.
2. In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring to boil peanut butter, honey and butter/coconut oil. Stir continuously to avoid burning.
4. Once bubbles start to form and mixture is hot, pour mixture into dry ingredients.
5. Stir to combine dry and wet mixtures. It should form quite a wet, sticky consistency. If it seems quite dry, add a bit more heated honey or melted butter/coconut oil. It needs to be quite wet to set firmly.
6. Pour mixture into slice tin (on top of chocolate chips if using), use back of spoon or baking paper to press mixture firmly into tin.
7. Leave to set for a few hours. Once set, slice into bars and enjoy!
