    Default REC: Muesli Bars

    Since I bought a case of this stuff, I'm looking for recipes. This
    looks like a good breakfast bar to take on the go. It's cooking now and
    if you're interested I'll let you know how they turn out when they cool
    and I can cut them. Obviously I subbed the muesli mix for the first 8
    ingredients.


    Muesli Bars

    1 cup of rolled oats
    1 cup of unsweetened desiccated coconut
    1/3 cup of wheatgerm
    1/4 cup of sesame seeds
    1/2 cup of sunflower kernals
    1/2 cup of raw pumpkin seeds
    1 cup of dried, unsweetened cranberries
    1/4 of flax seeds
    100 grams of butter (just under 1/2 cup)
    1/2 cup of honey
    1/8 cup of brown sugar
    Baking or waxed paper

    Grease and line a square baking tin with baking paper. Set aside.

    Cook the oats, coconut, wheatgerm, sesame seeds, sunflower kernels and
    pumpkin seeds in a fry pan over low to medium heat, stirring
    occasionally, for 8 minutes or until golden. Be careful not to burn the
    mixture. Transfer to a metal bowl. Set aside to cool.

    Stir in the cranberries and flax seeds.

    Cook the butter, honey and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat.
    Stir constantly for for 3 to 4 minutes or until sugar has dissolved.

    Bring to the boil and reduce the heat to low. Simmer, without stirring,
    for 5 minutes. Add butter mixture to dry ingredients. Stir well until
    combined.

    Spoon the mixture into the tin. Use a large metal spoon to press the
    mixture down firmly and evenly.

    Allow to cool and then cut into squares or rectangles.

    The bars can be stored in a foil-lined airtight container for up to a week.

    Pics - I ate the crumbs that didn't stick and this is a good healthy
    bar, even with the stick of butter. Divide the amount of butter by the
    number of bars.

    That would depend on how many bars one eats at a sitting... I see no
    reason the butter can't be omitted.

    Looks very good... which brand of muesilli did you buy?
    Next batch add some chocolate chips.
