I am usually looking for something a little sweeter come mid-afternoon so I thought I would create a healthy muesli bar to take to work with me.
Muesli Bar Base
- 2 cups oats (instant)
- 1/2 cup protein powder (I use Prana on, vanilla creme)
- 2 tablespoons almond meal
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1/2 cup milk (I use soy or almond)
- dash of vanilla essence
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
Yoghurt Drizzle ** Optional
- 1/4 cup Natural Yoghurt (I used YoPro – Natural)
- 1 1/2 honey
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil (melted)
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees celsius. Prepare a baking tray by lining it with baking paper. In a large bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients. In a seperate bowl, mix the wet ingredients (except the chocolate chips). Mix the two bowls together. Add the chocolate chips and fold gently. Pour into the lined baking tray and use a spatula to spread evenly across the tray, pressing into the tray. Put in the oven for ~20 minutes (watch for the edge to turn golden-brown).
Remove from the heat and start to prepare the yoghurt drizzle. Mix the yoghurt, honey and coconut oil into a small mixing bowl. Hint: You can make the consistency less thick by adding a dash of milk (to your liking). Once the bars are cool, drizzle the yoghurt over the bars with a tsp. Refrigerate.
