|1 cup||total of mixed dried fruit: apricots, cranberries, cherries etc. Cut into small pieces|
|0.25 cup||sunflower seeds|
|0.25 cup||pumpkin seeds|
|0.25 cup||crunchy peanut butter|
|1 tbsp||cocoa powder|
|2 tbsp||maple syrup or honey|
|1 tbsp||coconut oil (no need to melt it)|
|0.5 cup||GOFREE Corn Flakes|
|0.5 cup||GOFREE Coco Rice|
- In a food processor, mix the dried fruit pieces, pistachios, seeds and peanut butter for approx. 30 seconds.
- Add the cocoa powder, maple syrup and the coconut oil. Mix for another 10 seconds or until all the ingredients are evenly mixed.
- Empty the mixture into a bowl. Using a wooden spoon, mix in the coco rice and gluten free flakes trying not to break them up too much.
- Place the mixture onto a baking parchment lined baking tray to a thickness of about 2 cm.
- Using your hands, press down firmly on the mixture to pack it down.
- Don’t worry if your baking tray is too big, just make sure to press the sides too. The more you pack it down, the easier it will be to cut it later.
- Once done, place another sheet of baking parchment over the top of the mixture and chill in the fridge for an hour.
- Once set, cut the mixture into 8 bars. Wrapped in baking parchment, these will keep for a week if refrigerated.
We've tried to answer as many of your questions as possible. You can search them all here:
Do Nestlé products in emerging countries have more salt than products in developed/developing countries?
For the last 15 years we’ve been working to reduce the sodium (which is the major component of salt) in our breakfast cereals across the world, because we want to keep on making them more nutritious. Achieving consistency on all products, in all countries, takes time - so some may have more sodium than others. Our aim is for all our cereals – globally – to have the same reduced levels of sodium, with a target of less than 135mg per serving in all our children’s products.
What are the health and nutritional benefits of Nestlé Gluten Free Corn Flakes?
As well as being a healthy choice for people who want to reduce the amount of gluten in their diet, or have coeliac disease or a gluten intolerance, Gluten Free Corn Flakes are fortified with B-vitamins, folic acid and iron
How can I find foods made with whole grain?
Two things to remember: • Look for food labels where the word 'whole' appears in front of the name of the grain, like “whole wheat” or “wholemeal bread”. • For foods with more than one ingredient, make sure whole grain is listed towards the top of the ingredients list. The further up the list it is, the more whole grain has been used in the recipe. And look out for the percentage of whole grain. You should find this in the ingredients list too. It’s easy to know if a Nestlé breakfast cereal is made with whole grain: just look out for the Green Banner and whole grain tick on top of the box.
I’ve heard a low GI diet can help me lose weight. Is this true?
It’s too early to say. The science in this area is still emerging. There is evidence that low GI foods take longer to digest and help you feel satisfied for longer, but none that you’ll eat fewer calories at the next meal.
Why does Nestlé label vegetable oil?
Because it’s industry practice to label seasonal oils (oils that aren’t consistently available across the year). In Europe it’s now mandatory to detail the types of vegetable oils used in a food product. So it’s no longer permitted to use the term “vegetable oil” on a label.
