Apologies for our slackness at updating the blog, both of us have been busy recently with uni and work commitments. Next week we have 2 weeks of mid semester break so we are really keen to get busy in the kitchen.
Recently I have gotten into the bad habbit of buying muesli slice at uni along with my morning coffee. Although it is delicious, it’s full of butter and sugar so I decided to try making my own. I have made this slice now a number of times and it is the perfect morning-snack, super easy to make and is very healthy (raw, vegan, free from refined-sugar, gluten-free).
1 cup Almonds
1/2 cup Pitted Dates (soak in boiling water to soften them up)
1/3 cup Peanut Butter (or any nut butter)
1/3 cup Goji Berries
2 tablespoons Chia Seeds
1 tablespoon honey (or use Agave Syrup to make them Vegan)
Handful of Cranberries
- Grind the almonds in a food processor for about 30 seconds
- Add the dates and mix (I also like to add dried apricots, feel free to experiment with different dried fruits)
- Add peanut butter, goji berries, chia seeds and honey
- Line a baking tray with baking paper and press the mixture in. Ideally you want it to be about 1cm thick
- Sprinkle over cocoanut threads and cranberries, make sure you press the cranberries into the mixture to make them stick
- Leave in the fridge for an hour before cutting into bars
