This type of preparation really lends itself to many variations. You can choose the seeds you prefer, also based on their properties, and dried fruit can also be used to your liking. I usually also add dehydrated fruit such as raisins, goji berries and apricots. In short, these energy bars are a true flavor concentrate!
First, put in a bowl i rice flakesil puffed ricei semi and the dried fruit coarsely chopped with a knife.
add raisins e goji seeds and finely chop instead apricots dehydrated.
Heat in a saucepan over low heat miele to make it fluid. Then pour it over the other ingredients and mix well to distribute it evenly. If you think you are in a too cold environment, do the reverse operation, i.e. add the dry part to the honey.
Coated one square pan or rectangular with parchment paper and pour the mixture while it is still hot, being careful not to burn yourself. Form one layer 2 cm high approximately and press well with the back of a spoon in order to compact it well.
Bake in the oven at 180°C for 15 minutes, then take it out of the oven and let it cool for at least 12 hours before continuing with the cutting of the actual bars. This must be done with a large knife with a smooth and wet blade in order to prevent it from sticking or breaking.
