Homemade Nutri Grain Bars


I have been buying various brands of cereal bars to give the kids in their pack lunches. They quite often bring them home untouched, which given the taste or should I say lack of taste is not surprising. This recipe comes from a lovely blog that I follow, see the link below and be sure to have a look the 'Homemade Gingerbread House' post, it is truely a work of art.
I couldn't wait to try them when they came out of the oven. I used a layer of raspberries, which I luckily had in the freezer, the result was like a raspberry crumble in a bar form. I should have used a larger dish as they ended up being quite thick, and maybe not as firm as they should have been. 0n cooling they did firm up and have been providing great snacks over the weekend.

See the recipe and check out Elizabeths Kitchen at, http://tangolikeraindrop.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/homemade-nutri-grain-bars.html

  1. 'Raspberry Crumble in bar form' really sells it to me. Would fancy an apple one too

    2. Alan, if you try the apple ones before Sally let me know how they turn out. My kids won't eat blackberries or raspberries as they don't like the seeds. Apple would go down well as Sally says for their packed lunches. Alison

  2. I'm so glad you tried these and they worked so well for you - the greatest test is whether or not the children will eat them, and clearly yours have! Thank you for the kind comments about my blog too :)

  3. Sally WOW. I've been looking for a no nonsense food blog with food that actually works, which this clearly does and I found yours. Amazing diversity of stuff here and you cut straight to the food. So many other blogs are a bit too long for us mums who don't have much spare time. You have a commendable directory of meals so my search is finally over. I'll be working my way through your blog and I'll let you know how I get on and how the meals go down with the family, especially my two girls who can be a little fussy. Alison

    1. Thank you so much for your comments Alison, you really made my day. I have hoped my blog does what I set out to do, which was to post easy family meals that don't take a huge amount of effort and aren't too taxing for week day meals. I do like to throw in the occasional fancier recipe too. Let me know how you get on with the recipes. I really don't post anything that doesn't impress me or work for me.
