Muesli Bar


 Just having breakfast in the morning itself is a big job for most of us.  No matter  your working or non working  woman , moving around busily in the tight schedule sometimes makes you  just skip the main meals of  the day. This Muesli bar will be something very handy for a fast moving men or women.  This will also make as a ideal snack to satisfy your craving in the mid day.

  A single muesli bar is full of whole grains and dried fruits, which slowly release energy and keeps you active for a longer time.
  Actually I had some doubt how to name this bar as Granola or Muesli.  When searched in net for the difference between granola and muesli , I couldn't get any appropriate answer. So I just left it as Muesli bars.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes 12 bars

Ingredients:
Rolled Oats- 100 g
Wheat flakes-70 g
Rye flakes- 70 g
Walnuts- 10
Almonds- 10
Dried s fruit mix( cranberries, sultanas, apricots)-75 g
Brown Sugar- 70 g
Sunflower oil- 60 ml
Golden Syrup- 2 tbsp
Dried coconut flakes or dessicated coconut- 30 g

Note:
Please don't use white sugar in the place of brown sugar in this recipe.
If you find trouble in finding wheat flakes and rye flakes, get a readymade packet of muesli mix and follow the same procedure.
If your muesli mix contains lots of dried fruits, cut down the dried fruits.

Method:
Dry roast the oats, wheat flakes, rye flakes, nuts and dessicated coconut. ( if you are using ready made muesli dry roast the same way).  Add the dry roast ingredients to the food processor and pulse it once or twice until it looks coarse. Don't make it as fine powder.
Preheat the oven to 160 degree Celsius. Grease a 20 cm cake tin and line it with aluminium foil.
In a large bowl add the blended ingredients, dry fruits and mix well.
Add the golden syrup, brown sugar and oil in a pan.  Bring to boil.  Keep stirring in medium heat and bring to boil for 2 minutes.  Quickly pour it over the ingredients in the bowl and mix well.
Transfer this to the cake tin, spread evenly and press the mixture. Bake it in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.  Take it out from the oven, it will look very crumbly  at this stage.  Let it cool down in the tin for 1 to 2 hours until it looks firm. Then cut them into bar and store it in a air tight container.
The day you made it'll have a chewy texture, the next day it turns slightly crispier.

Hi,

The Museli bars look yummmm .. i wanted to try it nd hence wanted to clarify a couple of things

1) Rolled Oats are the normal oats we have for BF right..

2)If using the museli mixture for this bar do we use oats also or does oats need to be used only if it is wheat and rye flakes
