The bars feature oats, puffed cereal, yoghurt, goji berries, coconut oil, rice syrup and vanilla. You can taste each of the flavours and they come together harmoniously. It is the coconut oil that allows for the firm texture when chilled. I used soya almond yoghurt, but coconut yoghurt might be a nice way of continuing the coconut theme.
I can only describe the chilled texture as a cross between baked oat bars and raw no-bake slices. If that sounds odd, it wasn't. I found it very pleasing and a nice way to enjoy a bit of both styles of slice.
Yoghurt and goji berry oat bars
Breakfast worthy oat and cereal bars that taste of coconut, yoghurt and goji berries
Makes 8 bars
Author: Bite-sized thoughts
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup rice syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup rolled oats
1-1/2 cups puffed cereal (I used puffed wheat)
1/3 - 1/2 cup goji berries
1/2 cup non-dairy yoghurt of choice (I used almond soy)
Preheat your oven to 175'C (350'F) and line a loaf tin with baking paper.
In a small saucepan or microwave proof bowl, warm the coconut oil, rice syrup and vanilla until the oil is melted.
Meanwhile, combine the oats, puffed cereal and goji berries in a mixing bowl. Add the yoghurt and stir through. When ready, add the melted oil mixture and stir through.
Transfer the mixture to your prepared loaf tin and press to distribute evenly.
Bake for approximately 18 minutes. Allow to cool fully in the tin before removing and slicing.
Store in the fridge, and serve chilled.
