Muesli Bars

Postby Ally » Thu Dec 14, 2006 6:13 am

Muesli Bars
Makes 10

1 tbs vegetable oil
1/3 cup honey
1.5 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
90g rolled oats
60g all bran
50g dried apricots, chopped small
50g sultanas

Line a 20cm x 20cm cake tin with baking paper.

Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl

Heat oil and honey in a large saucepan over gently heat for 5 to 8 minutes or until the honey begins to caramelise. When a little mixture dropped into a glass of cold water forms a firm ball the cooking is complete. Stir in peanut butter until well blended.

Remove from heat and add in the dry ingredients and stir until well coated.

Transfer to prepared tin, cover with another sheet of baking paper and press down very firmly. Refrigerate until set. Cut into 10 bars and store in the fridge.

Suitable to freeze.

Calories per bar: 159 Calories
Fat per bar: 5g fat

**You can substitute Special K (150g) in place of the oats, all bran, apricots and sultanas. This would give each bar the value of:

Cals per bar Special K: 135cal
fat per bar special K: 4g

Cals per bar Special K with the apricots and sultanas: 161 Cals
fat per bar Special K with the apricots and sultanas: 4g

**Please note a 20ml tablespoon is used in this recipe.

Even though these muesli bars have a higher fat content than the shop bought ones I make these for the family as sometimes even though the fat content is low is the shop bought ones the sugar content is through the roof!!!! The kids love them!! The special K ones come out really crunchy!!

That is what I was thinking Sarah...sometimes low fat is not always good for you in terms of how much sugar they shovel into those bars to make up for the fat loss!!. There are 6 different types of sugar in the K-time bars that you buy it is unbelievable!!
