My homemade musli bars… a great, healthy, rich in fibre and essential fats snack anytime that will give you nourishment and plenty of energy.
- 1glass of oat flakes
- half a glass of rye flakes
- half a glass of sesame seeds
- half a glass of sunflower seeds
- 3 tablespoons of raisins
- 3 tablespoons of dried cranberries
- 3 tablespoons of coconut flakes
- 7 dried apricots
- butter/ coconut cream
How to make
Fry the flakes on the dry pan, do the same with the seeds and add them to the flakes in the bowl. Cut the apricots into 4 pieces( can be kept in hot water for a few minutes before cutting them). Halve the raisins and add all dry fruit to the rest of the ingredients in the bowl so as the cranberries and coconut flakes. Add at least 3 tablespoons of honey( heat it up a little first), depending how sweet you would like your musli bars to be. Melt some butter, at least 1-2 tablespoon and add it with honey into the bowl. Mix everything well and put it in the container so that it gets firm. I like to keep it in the fridge and cut the bars the next day.
There is also a dairy free option where instead of butter you can use coconut cream. All you have to do is just take out the firm part of the cream from the can( as part of it is liquid), add it to the rest of the ingredients and mix well. I keep the can in the fridge for a few weeks beforehand so that the cream gets really thick and creamy…
Now shall we have a look at the nourishing part of the musli bars that are vitamins and minerals? Are you ready???
I think mostly I love my musli bars for their oatmeal ingredient- OATS- are such a wonderful source of protein but also have a great set of amino acids; brilliant source of B vitamins for better concentration, improve memory. They also contain substances that work as antidepressants. Not saying they are rich in vitamin E- strong anti-oxidant that protects healthy cells and magnesium- is responsible for many processes in our body like strengthening our muscles or soothing our nerves, takes part in over 300 biochemical processes in our body.
RYE flakes are often used as part of the losing weight diet! They are very nourishing, fill you up and regulate metabolism. They are also a great source of vitamins and minerals, like for example iron, magnesium, potassium but also B vitamins like folic acid.
We have seeds here as well which are brilliant source of essential fatty acids for brain protection; easy to bring with you anywhere you want, such a brilliant source of energy but also vitamins and minerals for the healthy body, like iron, magnesium, E, C vitamins and thiamine- supports the right functioning of the nervous system; has calming effect on the body.
