RAW PROTEIN MUSELI BARS



I’ve been itching to create a muesli bar recipe for so long but my son can’t have gluten or oats, and my partner can’t handle hard, crunchy bars where bits of nuts get stuck in your teeth so well that your tongue becomes a toothpick for the next hour; so what else do you do but get in the kitchen and start creating!! Im addicted to bliss balls myself and I know my whole family loves them too so why not mix a bliss ball and museli bar in one?

I give you the chewiest, most mouthwatering explosion in your mouth that is jam packed full of goodness!

Your classic muesli bar usually contains oats, nuts, seeds, fruit, LOTS of sugar (and not the good type) followed by oil, syrup and glucose! Unless you want your kids running around like absolute lunatics on a sugar high then I would steer clear of these. The sugars found in these “healthy snacks” are High GI meaning they spike your/your kids blood sugar levels, driving there little bodies into full throttle for a short period of time then BOOM!…they crash…and then come the tantrums! So moral of the story, stay away from refined sugars.


Lucky for you these scrumptious bars are gluten free, refined sugar free, dairy free, can be nut free and are high in protein, fibre, essential fatty acids and iron! Perfect for an on the go snack, breakfast bar, lunch box filler or even post workout snack.

The best thing about these bars is you can basically make them with whatever you find in your cupboard. Don’t have quinoa or rice flakes? Substitute with desiccated coconut or oats if you’re not gluten intolerant. Don’t have dried banana?….get dried banana! (search for a bulk food store and they should have some; I got mine from The Source Bulk Foods) Trust me when I say you will wonder how you have been missing out on these little gifts from the heavens!! But…if in the unfortunate event of you not being able to get your hands on these beauties just substitute for any other dried fruit. Add nuts and seeds of your choice if you like or substitute the puffed buckwheat for activated buckinis to get that little bit of crunch!

Make a batch and store them in an airtight container so you and your family can enjoy them all week long.



RECIPE

INGREDIENTS FOR SLICE

  • 1.5 CUP Quinoa or Rice Flakes

  • 1.5 CUP Pitted Dates

  • 1/2 CUP Organic Dried Apricots

  • 1/2 CUP Organic Dried Banana

  • 1/2 CUP Organic Raisins

  • 1 CUP Puffed Buckwheat

  • 1 scoop (30g) Vegan Protein Powder

FOR THE CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE SAUCE

  • 1/4 CUP Cacao Butter (or substitute with coconut oil)

  • 1/2 TBS Cacao Powder

  • 1.5 TBS Rice Malt Syrup/Maple Syrup/Coconut Nectar/Honey (if not vegan)

METHOD

  1. Soak dates in boiling water for 5 mins to soften.

  2. While dates are soaking, chop all bigger dried fruits into smaller cubes/chunks.

  3. Drain dates and process in a food processor until they break up a little bit.

  4. Add in quinoa/rice flakes as well as the protein powder and process until a sticky dough like consistency forms.

  5. Add in remaining dry fruit/extra ingredients of choice and process once more.

  6. Line baking tin with baking paper and press mixture into the tin creating a thick even layer. I use the back of a spoon to evenly spread it.

  7. Freeze while you prepare the chocolate drizzle sauce.

  8. Melt cacao butter/coconut oil using a double boiler method and stir in cacao powder and syrup of choice.

  9. Pull slice out of the freezer and drizzle with chocolate sauce.

  10. Put back in freezer for another hour then slice and store in an airtight container.

Try not to eat it all in one day and ENJOY!!
