Goji-Tana Muesli Bars
My children attend a ‘Nude Food’ school. Which, in my opinion, is just as sexy as the name implies. I applaud the move to saving our planet of unnecessary waste as well encouraging healthier versions of the foods born of shelf-life-driven chemicals disguised as food. And while I’m no saint when it comes to reaching for the easy option, I do dedicate some time to pre-preparing things that can be ‘thrown in’ the lunchbox as you dash out the door.
This one is inspired by a recipe given to me by the chef at my son’s kindergarten. He was a master at addressing the various dietary requirements while keeping it interesting.
I may have overindulged in the samples left at the front counter more than once!
2 Medium Bananas, mashed
3 cups Oats
3 tbs Tahini
3 tbs Rice Malt Syrup
¼ cup Goji Berries
¼ cup Sultanas
¼ cup Pepitas
¼ cup Sunflower Seeds
¼ cup Puffed Quinoa
¼ cup Puffed Rice
- Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl
- Press mixture evenly into a lined baking tray (40 x 25 cm)
- Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown
- Let cool and then cut into 16 even ‘bars’
- Store in the fridge for up to 5 days
Tip: Ensuring the mixture is evenly spread over the tray will help to make sure it cooks evenly
