Not all attempts in my kitchen work out. I browsed through lots of recipes for müesli bars, used a bit here and there and gave it a go. These are really sweet and tasty, but I only need to look at them and they crumble to pieces. Now I’m trying to think of alternative ways of using it. A crust for a cheesecake maybe? Or just as granola on a smoothie bowl? I’ll get back to you on that one. Here’s the recipe anyway, if anyone else is up for a challenge! Maybe a bit more oil and dates will do the trick?
5 dl oats
2 dl sunflower seeds
0,5 dl sesame seeds
1 dl millet flakes
1 dl almonds
1 apple, finely diced
20-25 medjool dates
0,5 dl hemp seeds
2 dl peanut butter
0,5 dl agave syrup or other sweetener
0,5 dl coconut oil
0,5 tsp salt
Roast grains and seeds (except for hemp seeds) plus the diced apple in the oven at 175 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden.
Meanwhile, put dates in water to soften. Rinse after 5 minutes and finely chop.
Put roasted ingredients in a big bowl and add hemp seeds. Next, add chopped dates and mix very thoroughly, so that the grains start to stick together.
Slowly melt peanut butter in a saucepan, add syrup, oil and salt. Pour over the grains and mix well.
Transfer the mix to a tray, 20×30 cm, lined with parchment paper. Smooth until even. Use another parchment paper and press. Put in fridge or freezer to set before cutting bars.
