Cranberry and almond are a delicious combination and together in these cranberry almond muesli bars, they make a filling, nourishing sweet treat.
With a busy weekend on I wanted to make something healthy, quick and easy for lunches for the week ahead and these cranberry and almond muesli bars are just that. You simply mix together the nuts, seeds, oats and fruit then mix with the melted honey, nut butter and oil mix. There’s no cooking required either – you just simply press into a dish and refrigerate. Easy and tasty!
Cranberry Almond Muesli Bars
1/4 cup linseeds
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup almonds
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup cranberries
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup almond butter (or you can use peanut butter)
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup coconut oil
Optional: dark chocolate, melted
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. In a pot, heat together honey, peanut butter and oil, stirring until the honey and peanut butter are dissolved. Pour the honey mixture over the dry ingredient mixture and mix well. Pour into a lined slice tin and refrigerate until set.
Once set, cut into bars. To make it extra tasty, melt some dark chocolate and drizzle over the top.
Makes 16 bars.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge. These keep for around 4-5 days, or you can freeze individually.
