Muesli Slice

This slice recipe was stolen from a guy I work with (thanks Timmy) and has been changed a bit since the original, actually, to be honest, it’s different every time I make it depending on what I find to put in it. Regardless, it’s 100% better for you than the muesli bars out of a package so get on board. Now oats have been proven to help lower cholesterol due to the high amount of soluble fibre and they contain beta-glucans that help reduce the risk of heart disease. Oats are a great low GI carbohydrate that will stave off those munchies. Amaranth is a gluten free grain that is a protein powerhouse, it also contains high levels of calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and potassium.

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup puffed amaranth
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup pepitas
1/2 cup nuts (whatever you like)
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup chopped dried fruit – sulfur free apricots, dates, figs, raisins (anything really)
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup honey, warmed slightly so it’s runny
3 tbsp coconut oil

Mix all dry ingredients in bowl, pour over honey and coconut oil and combine. Press into a baking tray and bake for about 15-20 mins at around 170 degrees. Leave to cool then slice. This freezes well too.

    How many serves is this supposed to make? I tasted the mixture and it is currently in the oven, it’s SO GOOD but I think I might need a little guidance to stop myself from eating the whole lot..

  2. Honestly Elise, I can’t really remember exactly. I think about 12-15 muesli bar sized bars or about 24 big squares….. The mix is awesome isn’t it. Once they are done you can chop it up & freeze it in zip lock bags in individual serves to try & curb the eating 😉
