So I’m in a cooking / baking / making mood.
I always try to have healthy snacks at the ready, that are quick and easy but also yummy.
Dont get me wrong, I eat not so healthy food and quite often find myself reaching for the double coat Tim Tams 😉 BUT if I’m organised I try to have better options available.
Food prep takes no time at all and your body and mindset will thank you for it.
I hate to say it, but what you fuel your body with is how it responds. Much like your car, you put good fuel in your car and it will drive well. You eat well and your body and mind will perform well.
No bake muesli bars.
¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup agave syrup
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract,
¼ teaspoon cinnamon,
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup cashews
½ cup pepitas
¼ cup sunflower seeds,
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 cup chopped dried apricots.
Melt the agave syrup with the coconut oil.
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl then add the melted coconut oil and agave mixture.
Stir well or blitz in a food processor.
Pour into a lined or non stick tray and refrigerate for minimum 3hr or until the coconut oil has set.
Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
– note –
You can swap the dried fruit for whatever you like including dates, goji berries, sultanas or even a mix.
You can also swap the nuts to almonds, walnuts or peanuts. Again whatever flavour you prefer or maybe to a mix?
You could also add extra seeds and add chocolate chips if you like or try drizzling either melted chocolate or yogurt on top prior to setting it in the refrigerator.
Who says healthy isn’t easy and yummy!
These babies took no time at all. Actually about 15 minutes without setting time.
