I concocted my latest lockdown sweet treat- ‘The Lockdown Muesli Chunks’. These are peanut buttery muesli and oat blocks which are full of energy and protein.
My ingredients for these are:
1. 300g tropical muesli
2. 100g of porridge oats
3. 125g unsalted butter
4. 125g smooth peanut butter (unsweetened)
5. 4 tablespoons of golden syrup or honey
This was quite easy to make. I pan roasted the oats until they turned light brown in a pan on medium heat (10 mins). I took these out and added the butter and peanut butter to the pan and allowed to melt, on medium heat, then mixed the syrup (honey can be used here).
I then added the muesli and oats and thoroughly mixed so all the syrupy butter had coated the muesli and oats.
The mixture was then placed onto grease proof foil/paper, rolled and a weight was placed on this before placing in fridge for a few hours to set.
I then cut them into fairly big chunks, about 2 inch cubes. My girls and I really enjoyed!!! Great with a cuppa, as a snack, as part of brekkie or snack after exercise!!
