No-Bake Museli Energy Bites Recipe | Ezcookbook


Couple of weeks back, my husband demanded for a healthy snack to keep in the office table to munch as much as he want without any guilt. He regularly use to have museli for breakfast, so what I thought I can make use of the leftover museli mix to  make some energising bars.  I have tried long before store-bought energy bars. It was chewy, tasty and filling yet costly too. When I googled up, I came across many recipes using museli. After so many hunts, I decided to give a try on my own with reference to few recipes which I browsed.
My efforts was fruitful and it tasted absolutely delicious. Yep, my husband too liked it. Making your own homemade museli mix is quite easy and affordable. It's a popular breakfast recipe with the combination of rolled oats and other grains, some dried fruits and nuts or seeds of your choice. The ingredients given above is just for the basic idea, you can choose it as you desire. 

Basic Homemade Museli Mix: 
Rolled oats or Wheat brans - 1 cup
Corn Flakes or Barley Flakes- 2 cups
Walnuts or Almonds or Pecans - 1/4 cup,chopped
Dried Dates or Apricots or Cranberries or Cherries - 1/4 cup, chopped
Sultanas- 1/4 cup

Combine all the ingredients and store it in a air-tight container. It stays for 2-3 months. To enjoy delicious breakfast - add the 1/2 cup of museli with a cup of milk and fresh fruits.

Ingredients:

Museli Mix - 1 1/2 cups (rolled oats, cornflakes, dates, almonds, sultanas)
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds  - 1/4 cup

Method:

  1. In a large mixing bowl combine the museli mix, coconut, broken dark chocolate pieces, pumpkin seeds. 

  1. Melt the butter in the sauce pan, now fold in the nutella, honey and chocolate over medium heat. Whisk until smooth consistency achieved.
  2. Remove the sauce pan from fire and pour over the museli mixture. Stir completely to coat the museli mixture. The chocolate pieces should start to melt at this point.
  3. Now start shaping the mixture as you desire. Either you can shape it as a bars or bite size balls. 
  4. I like to make small bite size balls and did so. Arrange in the greased tray or tin and refrigerate overnight or minimum an hour before use.
  5. If you desire to make bars, place a foil in the tin and pour the mixture to the tin. Pat it using a flat spatula to set. Refrigerate and once firm, invert the foil and cut into bars of desired thickness.
  6. Top it up with coconut flakes, if desired.
  7. Enjoy the guilt-free, chewy, munchy energy bites.

Note:

Substitute your favourite nut-butter like almondbutter, peanut butter for nutella. Also you could use flax seeds. The recipe is super flexible and include or omit ingredients as you like.
