份量: 20條
準備時間: 30 分鐘
烹飪時間: 30 分鐘
難度: 容易

材料:

麥片 3杯 (非即食)
原粒杏仁 1杯
南瓜籽 1杯
蔓越莓乾 1/2杯
花生或杏仁醬 1/2杯
楓糖漿 1/2杯
椰棗 2杯 (16 oz)
玉桂粉 1 tsp

做法:

  1. 焗爐預熱170度, 燕麥片及杏仁分別入爐, 輕輕烤10分鐘 (此步驟主要是令燕麥及杏仁口感變得更香脆, 如沒焗爐的話可省卻)
  2. 椰棗去核, 於食物處理器內攪拌至幼細醬狀, 備用
  3. 將所有乾材料混合於碗內
  4. 以平底鑊慢慢地把楓糖漿及花生醬加熱, 加入玉桂粉輕輕攪拌至混合, 離火
  5. 將糖漿慢慢倒入堅果材料中, 徹底地混合好; 再把椰棗醬散落在材料上, 再均勻混合
  6. 將所有堅果混合材料倒入焗盤或其它平底器皿, 以刮刀徹底地把所有材料壓平; 此步驟非常重要, 如壓得不夠堅果棒有機會未能成型
  7. 把焗盤以保鮮紙封好, 置於雪櫃內冷藏最少四小時。小心地從容量內倒出, 並切成合適大小。免焗堅果燕麥棒就這樣完成了啊!
