Just in time for the start of school, food blogger "sophieschoices" shows us a great recipe: the one for her homemade berry muesli bars! Look forward to a delicious, healthy snack …
In some parts of Austria school has already started again - in October the universities will follow suit. We're in the office all year round anyway. And we have an urgent need for simple, healthy snacks!
Unfortunately, conventional granola bars are not always as healthy as they sound. They often contain large amounts of unnecessary sugar, artificial additives or flavor enhancers. The supposedly healthy snack quickly becomes an unwanted calorie bomb.
So why don't we just do it ourselves? Admittedly, before I read the recipe from photographer and food blogger Sophie Kovacs, sophieschoices.at, I thought that making muesli bars myself would be a lot of work. But it is not. Clear the stage for your new favorite snack.
Vegan berry granola bars
You need this:
(For a baking pan, approx. 16 pieces)
- 125 g oat flakes, fine leaf
- 125 g oat flakes, large leaf
- 60 g pumpkin seeds
- 20 g sesame seeds
- 100 g dried fruits of your choice (raisins, mulberries, cranberries, …)
- 100 ml agave syrup
- 50 ml maple syrup
- 50 g white almond butter
- 40 g plant-based butter
- 80 g fresh berries (e.g. currants and raspberries)
- 1 tbsp spelled flour
- some cinnamon
- 1 pinch of salt
That's how it's done:
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees. Heat the plant-based butter over low heat, then add the agave syrup, maple syrup and almond butter. Put oat flakes, pumpkin seeds, dried fruits, sesame seeds, a pinch of salt and cinnamon in a bowl and stir together. Then pour the liquid amount over the dry ingredients and mix well.
Add the berries and flour and stir again. Put the muesli bar mass in a baking pan (20x30) lined with baking paper and press it firmly so that everything can connect well and the bars do not fall apart later.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes until the surface is golden brown. If the bars brown too quickly, you can cover them with aluminum foil. After baking, let cool completely and place in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Now you can cut down bars of the same size - and enjoy.
A little hint: Keep the bars in the refrigerator, if they are hermetically sealed, they will last about a week. If you like, you can also pour melted dark chocolate over it.
