These healthy muesli bites were my project for the week and I’m really happy about how they turned out. They are full of goodies and really filling! I gave some to a friend and she said they disappeared very quickly (I hope she was telling the truth).
I got this recipe from an Icelandic website called Gulur, rauður, grænn og salt (it means yellow, red, green and salt. The first part is from a children´s nursery rhyme). I just amended the recipe a little.
(If you are not sure what I mean by silicon muffin tray then here is a picture from amazon.co.uk.)
- 100g oats
- 25g sunflower seeds
- 25g pumpkin seeds
- 50g raisins
- 50g pitted dates, chopped
- 25g almonds
- 100g honey
- 30g agave syrup
- 50g dark chocolate
- Preheat the oven to 180C.
- Place all the ingredients in a bowl (except dark chocolate) and mix well.
- Coat a silicon muffin tray with non stick vegetable spray (I tried without and muesli bites stuck to the tray) and then scoop the mixture into the tray and press down. Don’t fill it all the way up, as you want to leave space for chocolate.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes.
- While the muesli bites are baking, take a small pan and fill it up with about 1cm of water and place on the stove over low heat. Then break up the chocolate and place in a (large) bowl that will sit snuggly in the pan. Stir with at spoon until the chocolate has melted. Please be careful no to burn yourself!
- Cover each bite with melted chocolate and then place in the fridge for an hour so to set.
