Healthy Cereal Bars 2

I posted a week ago about my healthy (and tasty) cereal bars, and since then I have augmented the recipe and made it a bit healthier. They still only have 6 ingredients and don’t require any cooking.

I added some Rice Puffs with the intention of bulking up the bars without adding any extra fat or sugar.  I was just going to buy some Rice Crispies but found them to have loads of added sugar, so I went to Holland and Barrett and bought some, slightly pricier, gluten free, Rice Puffs.

Last time I used Hemp Seeds last time which were a bit too crunchy so I omitted them this time around. The result is the bars have fewer calories, and less fat and sugar.

These quantities make 32 bars.

  • 240g Oats
  • 60g Oat Bran
  • 80g Rice Puffs
  • 170g Agave Nectar
  • 60g Coconut Oil
  • 350g Almond Butter

All you do is mix the ingredients together.  You need to make sure they are all mixed evenly, so I found it easiest to mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet in another before combining them all.  Coconut oil is solid at room temperature but melts at 24 celsuis so I put mine in the microwave for 30secs first to melt it.
