Muesli Slice Recipe

Well I am still maintaining the same weight (even after a few Birthday celebrations). If I over indulge one day I try to exercise more and cut down on eating slightly the next day, but I am certainly still eating well and often.

I made a nice Muesli Slice. Not a very sweet one, but I don't like things too sweet. This is nice to have on hand if I feel like a snack with a cuppa. Doesn't look very elegant but tastes nice.

3 cups Muesli (I used Lowan Fruit and Nut Natural Muesli)
1/3 cup honey
1 cup orange juice (no added sugar)

Place honey and orange juice in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until mixture is syrupy.
Stir syrup into Muesli and mix well.
Press mixture into slice tray lined with baking paper
Bake in moderate oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Mark out 15 squares lightly.

Allow to cool and cut into 15 small squares (approx 1.5 points per square)

Squares aren't huge, but I find it quite filling. Just put it in a Slice Tin. Hope you like it!
