Home-made seed bars June 21 2016, 0 Comments

My husband and I love nut and seed bars but they are expensive and full of sugars so we've been experimenting with this recipe for a while now. This usually makes enough for a weeks worth for the both of us, although the kids love them too so I may need to up the volume....feel free to mix up the ingredients and experiment for yourself!

nut-bars

100g peanut butter

80g honey

60g Pumpkin seeds

50g Sunflower seeds

20g linseed seeds

10g sesame seeds

10g chia seeds

30g ground almonds

40g Rolled oats

30g Rice crispies / puffs

15g Amarynth Puffs (optional - found in Whole Foods)

Pre-heat the oven to 150 degrees

Gently heat the peanut butter and the honey in a pan until it's liquid. Turn off the heat.

Add the other ingredients (oats last) bit by bit and mix in until they are all coated.

Add a little extra honey if you are struggling to mix in the ingredients. 

Take a good spoonful of mixture and mould to a ball in your hands. Flatten a little and place in a non stick shallow bun tin / mince pie tray.

Place in the oven and cook for 10-12 minutes. You don't really want them to brown - just heat enough to hold the bar together.

Allow to cool before lifting each bar out of the tim. Keep in an air tight tin and try not to eat them all at once!

We find that these really help to keep us from snacking.

Enjoy!
