The Down to Earth forum I am a member of has recipes for all sorts of healthy food and I found some homemade muesli bars that contain rolled oats, nuts, seeds, coconut and dried fruit held together with a can of condensed milk. OK, so the condensed skim milk has 60.9gm sugar, which is the equivalent of around 12 teaspoons of sugar, however, as a 250g packet of orange slice biscuits has 30.5g of sugar, about zero nutrition and little fibre it makes the muesli bars at around 900gm , full of fibre, vitamins, minerals and Omega 3 & 6, sound absolutely terrific even with the can of condensed milk in there!
I had to taste test one for breakfast and they are very yummy and very filling. I'll be good though and not be tempted too much as I don't know the kilojoule/calorie count on these :). The farm girl grabbed one for breakfast and ate it on the walk up the driveway to catch the bus. She likes them too.
Would you be tempted by these?
