If anyone would like to share some recipes, I would love to have them. Thank you!
Sorry I am Australian so its all in metric!!
I made these for DH to take to work as a snack. I found a recipe online but changed it to suit me
These are so yummy and will make ~ 12-16 muesli bars.
Cranberry & Macadamia Muesli Bars
125 grams butter
75 grams soft brown sugar
2 tablespoons Golden Syrup
140 grams rolled oats
75 grams self-raising flour, sifted
160 grams dried cranberries (Crasins)
100 grams macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
60 grams desiccated coconut
150g chocolate (I use dark choc but white or milk will work too)
Set your oven to 160 degrees. Prepare your slice tin (20cm x 30cm) by lining with Glad bake or other baking paper. Leaving some paper overlapping the sides will make it easy to remove the muesli bars later.
In a large mixing bowl, weigh the Oats, flour, cranberries, nuts & coconut. Mix with a spoon until combined.
In a saucepan, on medium heat, melt the Butter, sugar & Golden Syrup in a saucepan. Stir until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved but make sure to not let the mixture boil.
Add the butter mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until its all combined.
Place into the tin, spread out evenly and push down the mixture with the back of a spoon.
Bake for approx 20 mins or until golden brown. It will be soft when you first pull it out of the oven but will firm up once cool.
Allow to completely cool down in the tin.
Place the Chocolate in a microwave safe container and nuke for 20sec. Stir well and return to the microwave for another 10 sec. Stir again. Keep nuking it for 10 sec at a time stirring each time until the chocolate has melted. Pour the chocolate over and spread out evenly. Once the chocolate has set, it can be removed from the tin and sliced into bars.
You can get ~12-16 bars depending on how thick you slice it. These muesli bars are firm on the outside & chewy on the inside. Perfect, mostly healthy snack food! Enjoy!
