GF Muesli Bars & Lunches

- Topic Tags
Our family has a coeliac’s daughter and a frustrated wife who can’t find a gluten free recipe for museli bars, where the bars actually stay together, and which isn’t full of sugar.
The other thing is that finding suitable lunches which don’t involve bread is difficult.
Can you help? 🙂
I made some coconut crack bars last night, you could use those. because we are low sugar in this family, there’s no dried fruit (which is the same as eating a hard boiled lolly as far as nutrition and sugar content is concerned), a few chopped nuts might be good though?
I used coconut milk, and it doesn’t work as well as the coconut oil (someone suggested trying the milk in order to cut through the sweetness). And I used maple syrup as agave is (I think) higher in fructose (the bad sugar)
Agree about the lunches, we don’t eat wheat by choice (cos it’s one of the worst ‘foods’ there is). Lunch boxes contain
yoghurt, egg dishes (you can make ‘muffins’ with just the eggs and flavourings), tinned or smoked fish (Aldi has one awfully delicious smoked trout, which has no nitrates), meatballs.
If you search for ‘paleo recipes’ you’ll find loads 🙂 We use coconut flour for when we need flour, be aware it is more thirsty than wheat flour, so moisture levels need adjusting. http://www.marksdailyapple is a paleo site that contains lots of recipes (and threads on kids’ lunchboxes).
Paleo Banana Pikelets – easy as and tastes divine. Mash a nana (cavendish), add spices of choice (cinnamon, nutmeg etc), add an egg or two depending on the size of the nana and how many you wish to make, a couple of tablespoons of desiccated coconut, and about a teaspoon of coconut flour. Mix and cook in a pan (I use ghee, cos the flavour compliments the pikelet wekk). I’m lazy and cook it as one big pancake, your choice 🙂 Add butter on top.
