Usually when I visit my lovely sister in law she bakes; be it scones, biscuits or the like. I was very much taken by her recent creation of muesli biscuits drizzled with chocolate. They were very scrumptious and little man quite enjoyed them too. I was impressed that they contained no sugar, albeit quite a good lug of maple syrup. With the addition of sultanas and muesli I did not feel in the slightest bit guilty about eating these for breakfast!
I have omitted the nuts as little man and his playmates were going to be eating them but you can certainly add them back in. I also added an extra egg to help firm up the mixture.
To be honest, they were not as good as sis in law’s but I think that’s because her muesli was nicer! (Must ask her for the brand!)
Based on this recipe from taste.com.au
3 cups natural muesli (I used a tropical blend)
1 cup sultanas
3/4 cup plain flour
100g butter, melted, cooled
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 150°C. Grease 2 large baking trays. Line with baking paper.
Melt your butter and set aside to cool.
Combine muesli, sultanas and choc chips. Sift flour over muesli mixture. Make a well in the centre.
Combine butter, syrup and eggs in a jug. Pour into well. Stir to combine. Set your mixture aside for 10 minutes so that it firms up and becomes easier to work with.
Using 1 and half tablespoons of muesli mixture at a time, shape into balls. Place balls on prepared trays and flatten slightly.
Place in oven and increase temperature to 180°C. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool on trays.
Makes around 24.
