To make the fruit & nut snack bars:


  • 3 cups of the home made muesli above

  • ½ cup self-raising wholemeal or white flour

  • ¼ cup flax seeds

  • ¼ cup rice flour

  • ¼ cup packed dark brown sugar

  • ¾ cup liquid honey or maple syrup

  • ¼ cup tahini

  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of yoghurt

  • 1 egg

Preparation:

1.Preheat the oven to 180º c. Line a greased oblong baking pan with baking paper and set aside.

2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix together the muesli, flour, flax seeds,  and brown sugar until well combined. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the honey or syrup, tahini, egg and yoghurt. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, mixing until well combined. Spread into the prepared pan and bake for 20 to 30 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool for 15 mins then transfer carefully to a wire cooling rack and allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.  I wrap them individually in tin foil for packed lunches.
