Gluten free muesli slice

Oops ate a piece before the photo could be taken! Just received a new recipe book and chip “Cooking for me and you”. This book and recipe chip caters for gluten free and vegetarian diets and specifically created for  two person meals, we figured adapting for a family wouldn’t be too difficult. The guided recipe above was made for kids afternoon tea today, called ‘breakfast bars’. This slice is a highly nutritious combination of nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. Used prunes instead of apricots, other ingredients ..figs, assorted nuts, 3 eggs, pepitas, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, coconut and maple syrup . Not very sweet because I reduced maple syrup from 60g to 35g. Probably add some chocolate chips for the kids next time as there were no ahhhs today !  But it’s certainly healthy and simple to put together and it will be great for their lunchboxes.

Masterchef Chocolate Brownie

This is a pic of our chocolate brownie – the Masterchef ‘extreme brownies’ made today with thermomix.  Recipe from the recipe community. With 92 positive ratings had to try the extreme brownie out. Lovely brownie, crunchy top and soft inside where chocolate pieces melted. Perfect with whipped cream or yoghurt. Will certainly be our go to recipe in future, lots of positive comments and we halved the sugar from 440g to 200g as suggested by a few members. Still sweet enough for our taste, definately didn’t want ‘extreme’ sweetness !
