Dairy free muesli squares

Well it’s been awhile since my last blog. Sorry for my absence, I have just been so busy juggling Leroy & Leila. I haven’t had the chance to be creative and try new recipes, I have just been cooking our trusted family favourites. Today I had some time on my hands so I decided to make some dairy free muesli bars for snacks for the family. The past month I have given up dairy as directed by my doctor as it may be the cause of Leila’s eczema. It honestly hasn’t been as difficult as I thought it would be though I am missing cheese & chocolate of course. Normally I make muesli bars with condensed milk but this recipe is without this ingredient and they were just as yummy. Give them a try.

Dairy free muesli squares

Ingredients

1 cup of traditional oats
1 cup of roasted cashew nuts
1 cup of pine nuts
1 cup of desiccated coconut
1/2 cup of almond meal
1 cup of mixed dried fruit, chopped
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
3 tablespoons honey

Steps

Preheat oven to 180degrees.Line dish with baking paper allowing overhang. Blitz nuts into a fine powder consistency.
Combine oats, nuts, almond meal, coconut and fruit into a bowl. Separately whisk egg, vegetable oil and honey together. Stir into the muesli mixture.
Transfer mixture into your baking dish and press down firmly to even out. Sprinkle some oats on the top. Bake for approximately 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool in pan first, then cut into the squares and serve.

Enjoy.

Nutty bars

Today I made a different version of yesterday’s muesli bars. I took out the sultanas and cornflakes, and added 1 1/2 cups of finely ground almonds and 1 1/2 cups of finely ground walnuts. Results were delicious, a great on the go snack!

Australian women’s weekly ‘happy baby cook book’

This is the first children’s cookbook I bought. It’s a great starting point to help generate ideas. In this book I found a simple muesli bar recipe that can easily be adjusted to suit your little ones taste. I adjusted mine to be a little healthier!

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups cornflakes

1 1/2 rolled oats

1 cup rice puffs

1/2 cup shredded coconut

400g can skim sweetened condensed milk

2 handfuls of sultana’s

Mix all ingredients together & firmly press into a biscuit tray or similar, lined with baking paper. Cook at 160degrees for 40 minutes or until browned slightly. Cool in pan then lift from pan and slice into bars.

These were very popular at my house. You can use this as a base and add anything you like, for example nuts or other types of dried fruit. Check out the images below of my first attempt! Yummy
