Pineapple Coconut Muesli Bars with Puffed Teff and Date Syrup

© 2021 |

© 2021 |

If you need an energy boost to get you through the day, these simple, soft and chewy muesli bars are the one for you. They are packed with energy and nutrients, easy to make and cheaper than buying prepackaged. Amaranth or quinoa pops can be easily used in place of puffed teff. You can always add in some chocolate chips or drizzle with chocolate at the end too!

  • 60 g Butter
  • 80 g Date syrup
  • 5 Cardamom pods
  • 90 g Dried pineapples
  • 60 g Cashew nuts
  • 100 g Fine oat flakes
  • 50 g Puffed teff
  • 50 g Desiccated coconut
  • 1 tbsp Lime juice
  • 1 Egg, medium
  1. Preheat the oven to 160C/320F. Line a baking form (20x26cm) with parchment paper. Place butter and date syrup in a saucepan over a low heat and cook until the butter melts and the mixture are well combined. Cool slightly.
  2. Simply squeeze the cardamom pods and remove the seeds. Place them in the mortar and finely grind the seeds with the pestle.
  3. Add dried pineapples and cashew nuts together in a blender and grind roughly. Add it to the butter-date syrup mixture together with the rest of the ingredients. Mix well.
  4. Tip the mixture into the prepared baking pan, spread out evenly and press down firmly with the back of a spoon. Bake for 35 minutes. Set aside to cool completely in the tin before removing and cutting into bars. Store in a box in the fridge for up to a week.

Looks delicious! Do you think amaranth would work in place of the teff?

Yvonne @ Fiction Books Reviews 25/5/21 07:11

Looks delicious and I love just about all of those ingredients, although I did have to check out what 'puffed teff' was first!

I'm not sure if your suggestion of a drizzle of chocolate would enhance the flavour, or whether it might just be one too many extra flavour - In the interests of science I guess there is only one way to find out! - I'll have to make two batches, one with chocolate and one without - Don't worry about me, I can take the pain and suffering :) :) :)

I find these bars ideal to recharge your batteries in the middle of the morning or for a quick breakfast before a long day, as well as being delicious.
Good day

I've no idea what teff is but I do love sesame honey bars from Lidl so I would love this one too!

Tom 25/5/21 12:53

...they stack up beautifully!

Martha 25/5/21 13:06

They sure do look delicious Angie!

Paula Montenegro 25/5/21 13:17

I like the idea of using date syrup, which I never heard of. They are stunning and I can only imagine the flavors. I think cashews and pineapple are very underused, so I love that you made them part of this recipe.

I love a good energy bar bull of fruits nuts and grains and I love the combination of coconut and pineapple in these! Puffed teff is another ingredient I don't think I've seen available but I have to admit I've never search for it.

Angie, There is so much going on with your Pineapple Coconut Muesli Bars! Lots of flavor popping I'm sure. Never thought to mix pineapple with coconut. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

Ben | Havocinthekitchen 27/5/21 02:43

Homemade muesli bars are so much better than any store-bought. Besides, you've come up with such a unique combination of flavours and textures. I've never tried teff though - need to explore!

I do like a good protein bar around midday and this sounds wonderful. Like that it's chewy and not brittle.
