Since we've got Muesli at home, I made these yummy bars, which actually I've cut it different shapes except bars because I don't have my lamington pan with me.
Can you imagine these with one side (or a corner) coated with chocolate? Which bring me to the next question, since Muesly bars contain sugar and butter, can they still rise to the "healthy snack" podium? Because everything else in the recipe is good for us, isn't? Oh and if you have kids, it's also a kids friendly recipe. How about that?
I adapted this recipe from AWW.
For 12 pieces/ 10 inch round-shaped pan or a lamington pan
Prep: 10 min - Baking : about 20 min
- 125g butter, chopped coarsely
- 75g firmly packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 120g muesly with raisins and apples, or any of your favourite combination
- 40g shredded coconut
- 75g self-raising flour (or allpurpose flour + 1/4 tsp of baking powder)
- 65g dried cranberries (I replaced by dried cherries)
- ½ cup (70g) slivered almonds (I forgot those)
- A pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp of homemade candied orange peel (optional but wonderful)
- 2 tbsp of seeds (any of your favourite)
Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Grease the pan and line base and long sides with baking paper, extending paper slightly over edges.
Heat butter, sugar and honey in a medium saucepan; stir until sugar dissolves. Stir in remaining ingredients.
Press mixture firmly into pan; bake for about 20 minutes. Cool in pan before cutting.
These muesli bars keep well up to 3 days, since they have coconut and butter in them.
