Almond Cranberry Cereal Bars.

cereal-bar-1-0

I made some cereal bars, combining two or three different recipes I found online.

At the moment the right combination is still a work in progress.

I’ve made two batches. Both were a bit crumbly. The second even more so because I used less maple syrup. I guess I’ll eat it with a spoon.

The first batch was delicious, though very sweet, and had rolled oats as its cereal base. I polished off the batch in a very short time. For the second batch I used rolled oats, puffed brown rice and quinoa.

I will post the recipe when I get it right.

Review: Rude Health – The Beetroot

A 35g  beetroot snack bar. Price R19.50 (± US $1.45)

the-beetroot

The Beetroot is quite a nice tasting candy bar. It tastes like a date and nut bar. The beet doesn’t seem to add an distinct taste, which is fine by my. Beetroots are super healthy, but I hated them as a child.

What I like about this bar is that it contains 4 ingredients and doesn’t have added sugar. I would eat it again, but I probably won’t buy it on a regular basis. Like most health-food-snacks it is a bit on the expensive side, though it was not the most expensive snack bar in the store.

Best thing on the wrapper: “Gotcha. Caught you reading under the flap of a Beetroot bar. That’s hardcore. There’s a place for people like you.” (followed by social media info)
