\CHOCOLATE MUESLI BARS
Makes about 16 bars
You will need:
3/4 cup dessicated coconut
1/2 cup sesame seeds
3/4 sunflower kernels
1/2 cup pepitas
2 Tablespoons of white chia seeds
2 teaspoons of vanilla essence
Good pinch of salt
1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon of Stevia, depending on how sweet you like it (I use Nirvana brand which I purchase at the health food shop)
3 Tablespoons butter or use coconut oil if you prefer
4 Tablespoons Rice Malt Syrup
2 Tablespoons of cocoa powder or raw cacao powder
– To begin, you have a few options;
1. If you have a Thermomix or a similar kitchen gadget, then chuck it all in. Blitz it a little and heat the mixture up to 100 degrees for about 5 minutes or until the butter is melted.
2. Blitz the dry ingredients in a food processor slightly. Transfer to a saucepan and heat on the stove top until the butter has melted.
3. Take the less is more approach, and just heat the lot on the stove top until the butter has melted. Mix well.
Press the mixture firmly into a brownie tin lined with baking paper.
Pop in a preheated oven of about 150 deg C and cook until brown on top (about 10-15 minutes).
Cool and cut into bars. Keep in the fridge.
