Here’s the recipe I use to make cereal bars.
- 400g Strawberry Crunch Cereal
- 125g Plain Flour
- 5g Baking soda
- 5ml Vanilla extract
- 150g Unsalted butter
- 120ml Honey
- 75g Brown sugar
- 345g Chopped Nuts (Almond, Cashew, Walnut) and Dried Fruit
Mix the dry ingredients together first, then add vanilla extract, honey and softened butter and mix again. You should mix until no flour can be seen and you are sure the butter and honey are fairly well distributed.
Pre-heat oven to 170ºC. Press mixture into a tin or tray. Bake for 22 mins until surface is browned, you might need to turn the tray around at the 14 minute mark if you use a microwave/oven combo common in Japan . Leave to cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting into bars of your preferred size.
I researched and made modified a choco-chip recipe because I wanted a tasty healthy snack bar that was cheaper than store bought ones. I succeeded yet failed because yes they are relatively healthy and cheap per bar but we munch through all of them when we make a batch so it becomes not so healthy and not so cheap! So these days I usually make them to share with friends.
I’m sharing the recipe because they’ve been popular and there might be others out there who are looking for a similar recipe.
