Making a cereal bar at home is a good option to eat a healthier snack at school, at work or even when you are leaving the gym.
The cereal bars that are sold in supermarkets contain dyes and preservatives that can harm health and even weight loss over time, not being the best option for those who want a less industrialized and healthier diet.
Here are three great healthy cereal bar recipes, rich in fiber and low in calories.
1. Banana cereal bar with raisins
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1 cup (tea) of rolled oats
- 1/4 cup (of tea) of quinoa
- 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
- 1/4 cup (tea) pitted black plums
- 1/3 cup (tea) of raisin
- 1/2 cup (tea) chopped nuts
The first step is to hydrate the quinoa, and to do that just put the quinoa in a double the amount of water for 5 minutes. Then you should put the following ingredients in the food processor: oatmeal, quinoa already hydrated, half of the plums, raisins and nuts. After the mixture starts to become more compact, add the mashed banana, until it becomes a homogeneous mass. After that you should add the rest of the ingredients and also the sesame and stir them with your hands, without using the processor, so that the bar becomes more crisp.
On a greased baking sheet or covered with parchment paper, place the dough in a rectangular shape and bake for 20-25 minutes. Can be stored in the refrigerator, properly covered with parchment paper and lasts up to 1 week.
2. Apricot and almond cereal bar
- ½ cup (tea) of almonds
- 6 chopped dried apricots
- ½ cup (tea) chopped dehydrated apple
- 1 egg white
- 1 cup (tea) of rolled oats
- 1/2 cup (tea) tufted rice
- 1 tablespoon of melted butter
- 3 tablespoons of honey
Put the following ingredients in a container first: apricot, apple and lightly beaten egg whites and mix. Then add the butter, honey, puffed rice and rolled oats, mixing everything very well with your hands, until it is uniform.
Make small rectangles and then bake in a medium oven, covered with parchment paper, for 20 minutes, until the surface is golden brown.
3. Hazelnut cereal bar
- 2 tablespoons of shelled pumpkin seed
- 2 tablespoons of cashew
- 2 tablespoons of hazelnut
- 2 tablespoons of sesame
- 2 tablespoons of raisin
- 1 cup (of tea) of quinoa
- 6 dry pitted dates
- 1 banana
Hydrate the quinoa by placing it in 2 cups of water and letting it soak for 5 minutes. Then, add half the pumpkin, cashew, hazelnut, sesame, raisin and dates seeds to the food processor until a uniform mixture is obtained. Then add the banana and beat for a few more seconds. Finally, add the rest of the ingredients to the mixture and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden.
To prevent the dough from sticking to the baking sheet, grease the pan or bake under a sheet of parchment paper.Based on the article above, we provide a suitable video for you regarding How to Make Cereal Bar at Home ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
