Go bars

 Muesli Go Bars
Ready to grab and eat on those mad mornings getting out the door on time or those days you realise you haven't eaten lunch - eat a few of these bars, an apple and your good to go till next time you remember to eat... hopefully something delicious and lovingly prepared !!

This is a quick and easy recipe and can be made with that muesli you bought last month on a whim and have only eaten once or twice...huhhmmm this post is giving a bit too much insight into a day in my life...!
Of course if you're not prone to muesli whims of fancy just as easy to make with rolled oats and a mix of your desired dried fruit/nut combo....just make sure it equals 2 cups - easy!

This recipe inspired by the fabulous Smitten Kitchen

2 cups toasted muesli - I used the delish one from The Boat House Palm Beach
2 Tbs cinnamon sugar - caster sugar mixed with cinnamon to taste...we always have some ready to make cinnamon toast, an occasional breakfast treat for the kids.
1/4 cup flour - I used brown rice flour to make me feel healthy but any will do to bind the muesli crumbs
6 Tbs melted butter - or coconut oil
1 egg beaten
1/4 cup maple syrup - yum yum!
1 Tbs water

* combine dry ingredients then add wet ingredients'
* line a small baking dish with baking/parchment paper
* press mix into dish and flatten out for even cooking
use a smaller deeper pan/dish if you want high bars
I used a 20cm x 15cm ceramic baking dish so mine were quite flat
* bake 160c 20 mins
* cool in dish then wire rack - I found it easier to cut whilst a little warm.

Keep on hand in sealed container for those GO times
