Now that I have finally mastered the homemade muesli bar I make a batch every week, sometimes twice a week. My kids never seem to tire of them, but I do.
I try and mix things up a bit by adding different flavours – dried apple with cinnamon, sultanas and honey, cranberry and white choc chips… but even that was getting old. It was time to do something really wild… and try making them with popcorn!
Yep, tweaking my muesli bar recipe to become popcorn bars is about as wild and crazy as my life gets at the moment. Well that, and reading the Hunger Games!
So in case your life needs a little crazy in it as well here’s the recipe for homemade Berry and Chocolate Popcorn Bars.
Serving Size: 1 bar
Amount Per Serving: Calories: 120
Like my original muesli bar recipe – make sure you use quick cook oats not rolled oats, make sure you don’t overcook the syrup (if your bars are too dry you cooked it too long, if they are too sticky you need to cook it a little longer) and make sure you push it really firmly into the tin or dish so it sticks together well.
This time you also need to make sure you really pack the popcorn into the measuring cups and crumble/crush it into smaller pieces. If it is all looking a little too sticky when you put it into the tin crumble up some more pop corn and push it into the top.
So there you have it… my wild and crazy homemade popcorn bars!
