Mad for Muesli

29 Mar

 

Hi Lifters!

Not much to chat about this week – other than these scrumptious muesli bars!! For some reason I was really craving them and decided that it wouldn’t be so hard to up the protein content in them. Give them a try and let me know what you think!!

Chewy Protein Muesli Bars

2014-03-29 07.46.24

These are great to throw in the bag for an on-the-go snack AND feel free to make your own modifications – I would have loved to add pepitas and almonds but there were none in the pantry. Get creative! 🙂

Ingredients:

2 cups rolled oats

¼ cup chia

¼ cup shredded coconut

1 Tbsp sesame seeds

1 Tbsp sunflower seeds

½ cup (55g) vanilla whey

Pinch of salt

¼ cup coconut butter

1 tsp vanilla essence

¼ cup sugar free maple syrup (or honey, or regular maple syrup)

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius
  2. Mix all dry ingredients
  3. Whisk together coconut butter, vanilla essence, and maple syrup (it may be necessary to soft the coconut butter by putting it in the microwave for 10-20 seconds first)
  4. Add coconut mixture to the dry ingredients and mix
  5. Add a splash of water if too dry (mixture should be sticking together but not sloppy – I added only about 1 tsp of water)
  6. Line a baking tray with baking paper, and spread mixture out evenly. I used a 30cmx24cm tray but if you want thicker bars, use a smaller tray
  7. Bake for 10-15 minutes – longer if you want the bars to be crunchier or if you have thicker bars
  8. Once cooked, allow to cool slightly before slicing into bars (I divided mine into 16)
