If you were wondering how to make homemade bars, you will love reading this post (and the mold that Mastrad has made!). Cereal bars are tasty, healthy, provide energy and are a perfect food to take everywhere (at work, to school, for when you are exercising or simply to carry in your bag to eat mid-morning). Also, if you make the bars at home, you make sure to control the amount of sugar and the quality of the ingredients, and they have that extra "I made them!", which is always an added pleasure, you can't deny me.

What makes us very excited is that a mold for cereal bars has arrived that we love. It's well built, it's non-stick to make unmolding easy (and cleaning too...), it has a capacity for 10 bars ... and it's not silicone , which you know we never recommend, for health reasons and for that unpleasant flavor that it usually leaves on food.

This new mold for bars is from Mastrad, and using it is also very easy: you make the mixture, insert it into the different cavities and bake. Unmolding can be done with the help of the tab included in the set, which will not scratch the mold.

In addition, Mastrad has included with the mold a couple of perfect boxes to take the bars with you or to put safely in the school bag, without breaking them and ready to drink!

How to make cereal bars at home?

For the bars you need cereals, the filling, condiments and some ingredient that apart from flavor amalgamates and brings all the ingredients together. We go with them:

1. Cereals : oat flakes are usually used, or a mixture of cereals with oats (wheat flakes, rice...).

2. A mixture of dry ingredients to make the filling : here are some ideas for you to make your favorite combinations:

  • raisins
  • walnuts, hazelnuts or any chopped dried fruit
  • coconut
  • other dehydrated fruits such as apple, banana, strawberries, blueberries...
  • peeled sunflower or pumpkin seeds
  • Chocolate chips

3. Condiments : you can add salt, sugar (caramelizing will also help stick the bars) and spices to your liking (cinnamon, for example)

4. Some ingredients for the mixture to adhere and form the bar, such as:

  • honey or maple syrup
  • chocolate: you can add chocolate chips to the mix of dry seasonings, which when melted will help the bar to take consistency, but you can also make your own bar and cover the bar with melted chocolate, it will make the chocolate base (showy and delicious) and It will give consistency to the bar.
  • margarine or butter, added to the initial mixture will be, together with the honey, what will most help all the ingredients to come together.

I encourage you to see the recipe below to get an idea of ​​how to prepare the bars, and little by little try your own combinations until you find your favorite.

  • If you want to prepare a more appetizing version, after baking, bathe one side of the bars in black, milk or white chocolate (melted in a bain-marie), depending on your taste, and let cool.
  • You can bake at 140 g for 30 / 40 min, which allows better preservation of nutrients.
