As most children returned to school this week I read a very funny meme posted by a friend that read: “I’m just not sure how my child will survive back at school without 6 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 367 snacks a day!” Snack time is serious business…parents, you can relate right? 😉 And being prepared with a plethora of wholesome options for snack time makes life so much easier. This recipe is perfect for that, and one of our new faves.
These chewy muesli wedges have the flavour of an apple pie but are packed with ingredients to keep the kiddies full until their next meal. If you’re into your meal prep you can prepare a batch on a Sunday and keep them in the fridge to grab for lunchboxes or afternoon snacks during the week. The wedges also freeze very well if you want to stash some away for later. Happy snacking!
APPLE AND CRANBERRY MUESLI WEDGES
- 30g (½ cup) digestive bran
- 35g (½ cup) desiccated coconut
- 115g (1 cup) rolled oats
- 50g (¼ cup) coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
- 5ml (1 tsp) cinnamon
- 5 ml (1 tsp) baking powder
- 30g (100ml) dried apple wedges, chopped
- 30g (¼ cup) cranberries in cups
- 1 large egg
- 60ml (¼ cup) honey
- 250ml (1 cup) plain yoghurt
- 2 apples (250g) grated with skin on
1.) Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Grease a 20cm round cake tin and line the base with baking paper.
2.) Combine the bran, coconut, oats, coconut sugar, cinnamon and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Stir in the chopped dried apple and cranberries.
3.) In a separate jug combine the egg, honey and yoghurt. Add this to the dry ingredients with the grated apple, and stir until just combined.
4.) Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 35 minutes or until baked through. Allow to cool, then cut into wedges.
