Cool days = Baking days

IMG_3469 This morning I am heading into town to do a little shopping. My list looks something like this:

  • Wedding present
  • Christening present
  • Farewell present
  • A new top

Hmmm …how did that last one sneak in there?? I decided to take one of my homemade muesli bars with me – for a mid morning snack… I have seen these homemade bars on other blogs for ages now and was excited to give them a try! I decided to use this recipe I found at KERF as a base, but exchanged a few ingredients to make the bars wheat free. Basically I replaced the muesli with GF Muesli, added a handful of pepitas and also substituted the dried peaches with dried mixed berries. These bars were super easy to make. It really was just a matter of measuring out the dry ingredients… IMG_3440 IMG_3439 IMG_3443 IMG_3444 IMG_3447 Mixing them together with some milk and an egg… IMG_3449 Then press into a pan and bake for 30 minutes or so… IMG_3452  Then cut and serve. I was surprised at how ‘light’ these bars turned out. I expected them to have more of a crunch, but they are quite soft and almost cake-like….         IMG_3467                 The dried fruit provides a perfect level of sweetness, while the pepitas and the other grains in the muesli add a bit of crunch. Even Mr BBB enjoyed these! We both agreed that they would be a perfect lunch box snack for kids (and adults!). Well time to hit the shops! Happy baking 🙂

  1. It's so weird to see a post written Saturday when it's still Friday here in the states!
    I love this recipe. I have been looking for quick, healthy and easy recipes for breakfast and I think this would be good for a post workout snack.
    Enjoy your day! Looking forward to seeing the new top you get!!

  2. Those bars look so delish and wholesome! I've been looking for some kind of "powerbar" replacement that I can make myself without all the preservatives…I'm going to have to try this recipe. Fortunately, snowy days are perfect for baking! 🙂
