Healthy Muesli Bars

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.

Ingredients:

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)

Method:

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.
