This recipe comes from my gorgeous customer Janet Rowe. It is fat free, with no added sugar, healthy museli bar. The kids love it, it just goes too quickly. Janet says she could make a batch everyday and they wouldn’t think it was enough!
40g of water
2 tablespoons of chia seeds
400g rolled oats
300g dried fruit (Janet recommends 100g apricots, 100g sultanas, and a mix of Goji berries and dates for the rest, but have also just used mixed dried fruitwhen it was all that was in the cupboard)
250g liquid (a mix of fruit juice and water, or plain water)
Put the 2 tablespoons of chia seeds into the 40g of water in a measuring cup and allow to sit for around 5 min (normally how long it takes me to get all the other ingredients measured)
Put all ingredients into the TM bowl at speed 5-6 for about 30 seconds.
This mixes it all well and chops up all the dried fruit.
Scrape the mixture onto a baking tray (I line mine with a reusable silicone baking sheet) and use a spatula to spread out to the desired thickness.
Give it a good press down with spatula (or hands if you don’t mind getting messy). Bake at around 180 for as long as you have (20-30 min seems good).
Allow to cool on a cake rack, and then cut into pieces. I use our big pizzacutter to cut it as it is sharp and good for cutting across large items. I don’t bother refrigerating as it disappears a bit too quickly, but if keeping more than a few days you probably should refrigerate.
