The other day I saw a friend post a picture of some yummy muesli bars she’d made and it reminded me of these ones, which I’ve long made but for some some reason, never got around to posting.
Well here they are now, packed full of great stuff for a long lasting energy boost … My only advice is not to leave them unattended … Because a people tend to steal them!￼
Please see below the recipe for both coeliac friendly and nut free options.
- 150g rolled oats
- 20g rolled quinoa
- 100g Nuttelex/vegan butter/tasteless coconut oil
- 90g sweetener of choice (I use honey or maple syrup normally)
- 100g roasted almonds
- 25g each of flax, chia, sunflower and pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 tsp pink salt
- Optional – 30g dark chocolate of choice
Place oats, nuts, quinoa and seeds in a processor and process until roughly chopped (speed 5, 6 seconds). Set aside.
Mix together your oil and sweetener (speed 2, 100C, approx 90 seconds). Add in salt.
Add the dry mix into the wet and process until evenly combined (speed 4, 8 seconds, scrape down and repeat).
Press the mix firmly into a lined tin … Sprinke with chopped chocolate (if you want a choc fix!) And press it down into the slice.
Place into a preheated 150C oven for 30 mins.
Allow to cool in tin for 10 mins before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Cut into 16 squares and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a fortnight.
If you need a nut free option, remove the almonds and increase the seeds to a total of 200g, but oven roast them first to get a nuttier flavour.
Four a coeliac friendly version, replace the oats, by weight, with puffed rice.
