My kids love their nuts and it’s a challenge to find nut free choices to pack in the lunchbox … but the rules are there for good reason, so I played around with a new slice recipe to keep the kids interested. Hope this goes down well in your household too!
Nut-Free Muesli Bars
120gms organic butter
1/4 cup raw honey
1/2 cup quinoa flakes
1/2 cup SR flour
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup dried goji berries
1/4 cup coconut flakes
2 tbsp sesame seeds
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Melt the butter and honey together on low heat. If you’re using a Thermomix, melt for 2 minutes at 60 degrees, speed 2.
Add all the dry ingredients and stir to combine. In the TM, use reverse for 30 seconds on speed 3.
Transfer to a slice tray and bake for 20 minutes at 180 degrees or until golden. Allow to cool and cut into muesli bar or slice shapes.
Best to store in the freezer and in hindsight I would have doubled the mixture as they disappeared too quickly! You can easily substitute the berries for sultanas or seeds, the quinoa flakes for oats and the coconut sugar for rapadura or raw sugar if you prefer.
