kids nudie apple muesli bars

made using nudie kids nothing but apple juice

How do you make an apple puff? Chase it around the garden of course! This recipe combines fresh apples with kids nudie nothing but apple juice, to bring you a super healthy lunchbox snack your kids will loooove!

Apples have such a sweet and delicious taste and with the added bonus of pectin they help keep digestive systems healthy and humming! These muesli bars are quick and easy, and are a fantastic healthy alternative to store bought bars (which can often contain added nasties). Made with oats, they are packed with soluble fibre and have a low GI – keeping blood sugar levels balanced (no more sugar spikes, just healthy sustenance!). Added chia seeds, almonds, sunflower and pumpkin seeds will give your kids a healthy dose of protein, omega-3, vitamin E, copper, magnesium, selenium, biotin and zinc… wow! Parents, these aren’t just for kids (feel free to enjoy too!).

    – ½ cup almonds (cut almonds in half)
    – 1 tbsp. sunflower seeds
    – 1 tbsp. pumpkin seeds (otherwise known as pepitas)

    – ¼ cup (60mls) olive oil or coconut oil
    – 1 tsp. vanilla
    – ½ cup honey

  • Preparation

    1. Preheat oven to 180 °C (if fan forced, 160 °C). Combine oats, spelt flour, chia seeds, dates, almonds, sunflower and pumpkin seeds in a large bowl.

    2. In a separate bowl combine grated apple, kids nudie juice, oil, egg, vanilla and honey.

    3. Pour the wet ingredients evenly into the dry ingredients, stirring to form a sticky muesli mixture.

    4. Spoon mixture onto a non stick baking tray to be roughly an inch thick (you may need to
    wet your spoon to distribute the mixture evenly)!

    5. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden.

    6. Cool then cut into pieces.

    7. Dip in 70-85% melted dark chocolate. Place in fridge for 1 hour to set.

    Notes

    For extra crunch (and a slightly sweeter bar), pull muesli bar tray out of oven after 15 minutes and brush with extra honey. Place back in the oven for remainder of cooking time. For nut allergies, leave out the almonds. For egg allergies, replace the egg with ½ a mashed banana.
