Breakfast Bars (Nigella Lawson)

31 comments

If you're tired of toast, bacon, ham or cereal for morning breakfast, why not try something healthy, the Breakfast Bars! These healthy chewy bars are very easy to make and I adapted the recipe from Nigella Lawson. Really easy peasy. Just to throw in all the ingredients, mix and bake for an hour at low temperature. As I'm not a great fan of using condensed milk, I replaced it with honey and milk and just grabbed whatever leftover ingredients that I had on my pantry. A tasty and easy way to serve for breakfast or when you're in a rush or snack on in between meals.




Breakfast Bars

     397g can Condensed milk (I used 295g honey + 100g fresh milk)
     250g Rolled oats
     75g Shredded coconut
     100g Dried cranberries (used dried apricots, dried cranberries and dried sweet tomatoes)
     125g Mixed seeds (pine nuts, pumpkin, sunflower)
     125g Unsalted peanuts, (used walnuts, roughly chopped)

     Method:
  • Preheat the oven to 130C and  place a non greased baking sheet on a 13 inch square baking tray.
  • Warm honey and milk together in a sauce pot.
  • Meanwhile, mix together all the other ingredients in a large bowl and then add the warm milk into it, using a rubber spatula to fold and distribute.
  • Spread the mixture into the baking tray and press down with the spatula, or better still, your hands (wearing disposable vinyl gloves to stop you sticking), to even the surface.
  • Bake for one hour, then remove from the oven and, after about 15 minutes, cut the bar to require size. Let cool completely.

  7. Hi Ann,

    There is a liquid breakfast selling very well in Australia called Up-and-Go! I think your breakfast bars are the nutty version of Up-and-Go! :D
