homemade muesli bars

When you have spare time over the weekend it’s always great to do a bit of baking to prepare yourself (and your meals) for the week ahead. This weekend we decided to bake a batch of homemade museli bars ready for some tasty and healthy snacking throughout the week. We found this recipe on “oh she glows” and it is delicious!

Method
1. Preheat oven to 180C and line a square pan with baking paper.
2. Add rolled oats into a high-speed blender. Blend on highest speed until a fine flour forms. Add oat flour into a large bowl.
3. Add water and pitted dates into blender. (You may need to soak the oats a little to soften them if the blender is struggling). Blend the dates and water until smooth.
