I always (well, for at least one year!) wanted to make my own cereal bars. But recipes that I found online till now where either too complicated or with too many ingredients that I never use. Now I was a bit conflicted if posting this recipe or not because there are a bit more than 3 ingredients (out of the basic list) but you could definitely use a muesli mix and add butter/sugar/honey. Oh and let’s not forget that all the credit for this recipe goes to Marion and her lovely blog novice en cuisine.
Positive: Very easy to make, crunchy.
Negative: I wouldn’t put them in my bag for a snack because I think they would break too easily.
- cereal/seeds mix or muesli (I used 50 g oats – 30 g puffed rice – 15 g sesame seeds – 30 g raisins)
- 50 g butter
In your pantry:
- 25 g brown sugar
- 1 tbspoon honey
Preheat oven at 210°C.
In a small pan on low heat, melt butter with sugar and honey.
Put all the other ingredients in a large bowl, add the buttery mixture and combine well.
Cover a baking tray with parchment paper and pour the mixture. Press flat with a spoon and place in oven at 170°C for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, take the baking tray out of the oven and cut your bars while it’s still hot. Leave it to cool completely (1-2 hours) and separate bars.
My advice: They are perfect for breakfast with a yogurt. Can be kept in a metal tin for a few days.
