Honey, Banana and Choc Chip Muesli Bars

Museli bars are great for a number of reasons.  They’re the perfect snack you don’t have to think about, they’re pretty good at dealing with a rumbling tummy in the middle of the day, and are great for kids’ lunch boxes. However there are a few problems too.  More often than not the ones you’ll find in the supermarket are packed with sugar, often with barely any actual fruit lying within, and they can be pretty expensive for the six relatively small bars you get.

With the new year upon us we thought we’d start by looking at ways we can save money while still eating healthily and not missing out on yummy snacks.  Muesli bars are one of those things that are easy to chuck in the trolley without thinking about.  But it’s often the many little things that make for a lengthy receipt at the checkout, so by starting small and making your own little snacks at home, you can help keep the budget at bay. So here’s our recipe for some yummy muesli bars that will keep you and yours going.

Ingredients:
Directions:

On an ungreased baking sheet, spread your oats out evenly and bake at 180 degrees for about 10 minutes, stirring them up once in the middle of that time.
Remove oats from oven, leaving oven ON, and let cool completely.
While your oats are cooling, you can begin to mix together the remaining ingredients in a large bowl.  After the oats are cooled, add them to the bowl and mix all ingredients together.
Lightly spray a smallish (no smaller than 8″x8″) baking dish with cooking spray or a light coating of olive oil, and place mixture evenly into the dish, using your fingers or a rubber spatula to help push it down flat into the dish and corners.
Bake at 180 degrees for approximately 25 minutes.
After cooking, allow dish to cool completely.
After bars have cooled and chocolate has hardened, you can slice however you prefer.
I managed to make about 20 bars by cutting the block in half and slicing relatively thinly.

Nike Air Max Italia This warm and frankly delicious cocktail has reportedly been around since the early 18th Century, and like many a great wonder, its origin is shrouded in mystery. Was it borne out of an Allan Ramsay poem that mentioned the Todian spring, or did it come about as some kind of Scottish variant on the Indian palm wine drink known as toddy?

    Autumn Detox Salad

    As health is part of our motto it’s important to remember that while honey makes for tasty treats, it’s also perfect for dressing up a healthy detox salad.

    Here is a great looking recipe we found on our internet travels recently, you could get creative and substitute the Brussel sprouts for something like raw cabbage but why pass up the opportunity to be adventurous with food? The recipe calls for maple syrup but a friend of mine who gave this a go assures me that a drizzle of our raw honey did just the trick, and considering it is quite hard to come by actual maple syrup in NZ rather than the flavoured corn syrup kind it’s probably a better idea too.

    Ingredients:

    • 400 grams brussels sprouts (about 18), washed and stems removed
    • 280 grams carrots (about 2 large), peeled
    • 1 apple, diced (I used Honeycrisp)
    • 1 large celery stalk, diced
    • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
    • 4-6 tbsp raisins
    • 2-4 tbsp fresh lemon juice, to taste
    • 1/4 tsp fine grain sea salt or Herbamare, or to taste
    • 1 tsp fresh Thyme leaves (optional), or other herbs of choice
    • Pure maple syrup, to taste (or Davidson’s Raw and Unheated Honey!)

    Autumn Detox Salad

     

    1. Add the grate/shred blade to food processor. Turn machine on and drop in the brussels sprouts to shred. Now drop in the carrots to shred. Alternatively, you can finely chop brussels and shred carrots with a hand-held grater. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.

    2. Stir in the diced apple, celery, sunflower seeds, and raisins into the carrot and brussels sprout mixture.

    3. Add lemon juice, salt, pepper, and optional fresh thyme to taste. Add a small amount of maple sryup (about 1/2-1.5 tsp) to take the edge off the lemon juice. Sprinkle with cinnamon if desired. Serve & enjoy!
