Nutty Fruity Muesli Bar 高纤坚果棒

My hubby has been complaining that I have been making too many cookies of late and that his waistline is ballooning at a horrendous speed bcos of this. I chided him for eating too many potato chips and drinking too much belgian beer. But today I decided to listen to his complaints for once, and make something healthier. Nutty Fruity Muesli Bar, how about that?

This is a pretty easy and straightforward recipe that shouldnt take you more than 20 min of preparation, just roast the nuts in the oven, soak the raisins in honey and orange juice, mix it with an egg, throw in all the nuts and oatmeal, mix thoroughly and spread the mixture evenly on the baking tray. After 25 min in the oven, voila, your homemade muesli bar is ready!!!

Sounds too easy, isnt it? Try it and you will know :)

For those who are busy rushing for work and has no time for breakfast in the morning, just grab a few pieces of the homemade muesli bar along, and eat it while in the car or on the train. A healthy wholesome breakfast is a good start to a busy day!

Note that this homemade muesli bar does not keep well for too long so it is best to finish it within a day or two!

Recipe adapted from 孟老师的100道手工饼干

75g mixed nuts, chopped (walnuts, peanuts, cashewnuts, hazelnuts)
35g sunflower seeds
30g white sesame

100g honey
20g orange juice
100g raisins
1 whole egg (50g)
100g instant oatmeal

1. Spread the chopped nuts, sunflower seeds, and white sesame on a baking tray lined with baking paper and roast them at 150 degree celsius in the oven for about 10 min.

2. Mix the honey and orange juice in a big mixing bowl. Then add in the raisins and let them soak for about 10 min.

3. Add the egg to the ingredients in step 2 and mix well using an egg-beater. Then add in the chopped nuts, sunflower seeds and white sesame from step 1 and use a rubber spatula to mix thoroughly.

4. Finally add in the instant oatmeal and mix thoroughly using the rubber spatula. Pour the mixture into a 18cm by 18cm baking tray lined with baking paper (My baking tray was 15cm by 20cm). Spread the mixture evenly using the spatula.

5. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees celsius for about 25 min.

Just before popping into the oven.

(Note: the original recipe calls for 40g walnuts, 35g pumpkin seeds, 35g sunflower seeds, 30g white sesame, 100g honey, 20g orange juice, 40g diced orange, 60g raisins, 1 whole egg and 100g oatmeal. But as always, I don't have all the different types of ingredients hence I made some slight modifications to the ingredients and their proportions, add and minus some, to incorporate what I have in my pantry. )
