my muesli bars: from start to finish
- 1 cup mixed fruit muesli
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- 1/2 cup dried mango, chopped
- 1/2 cup choc chips
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 125g butter
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees and grease a pan.
Cook butter, honey and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, without stirring, for 5 minutes or until golden brown and thick.
while butter mixture is cooking, mix all dry ingredients together. After butter mixture has cooled, add to dry ingredients. Stir until combined.
Spoon mixture into pan. Use a large metal spoon to press down firmly. Cook for 10-15 mins. Allow to cool. Cut into squares. Store in a foil-lined airtight container for up to 7 days. Enjoy!
I took apples - washed them until very shiny - cut them without peeling and then cooked them in a bit of water. Once they were cool enough to touch I put through my NEW XOXO food mill. I took that beautiful rosey applesauce and cooked to boiling with about 1/4 of sugar, teaspoon lemon and a teaspoon of cinnamon (optional).
Cool and then freeze up to 6 months (or enjoy right away like I did). You can canned them too. Enjoy
