I am on a trip at the moment of being as frugal as I can so I can get my arse back to the UK in time for June. I also want to buy a house some time in the next year. As someone who has been a student for longer than I care to remember (I have a few pieces of paper which will tell you I am apparently smart) I have not had any savings plan to speak of. I am doing exceptionally well to date. I have been riding my bike instead of taking the bus. I have been buying all my fruit and veggies once a week at the markets and making a myriad of delicious things to preserve the food and keep me and my lover going for a couple of weeks. I spent about $25 and made sun dried tomatoes, pasta sauce, marinated roast zucchini, apple chips, marinated roast capsicum, and these muesli bars. And I still have heaps of delicious fresh foods left.
Here is the recipe for these delicious and healthy muesli bars. They are fat free and sugar free. All of these ingredients I had already in my pantry. You can substitute the fruit, seeds and spices for whatever you have in yours.
Time: 30 Minutes.
- 2 Cups of rolled oats.
- 1/4 dessicated coconut.
- 1 Cup of dried apple.
- 3/4 cup of pitted prunes.
- Half a teaspoon of nutmeg.
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds.
- 1 teaspoon of sesame seeds.
- Half a cup of water.
Place all of the ingredients into a blender and blend on high until all of the ingredients clump together.
Form into muesli bar shapes with your hands.
Place on a baking tray and bake at 180C or 360F for 20 minutes.
Allow to cool.
Store in an airtight container.
Should keep for a week.
