|orange power bars – muesli|
this what you will need:
2 egg whites
200g low fat cottage cheese
150g oat flakes
3 oranges (500g)
150g black dried plums
50g goji berries
50g dried red fruits
50g dried pineapple and papaya
1 t.spoon of cinnamon
Step 1: cut everything in a small pieces. wash good oranges as you will cut them with whole peel (just cut off the top and bottom parts. ( i always wash in a hot water also all other dried fruits.)
Step 2: mix together eggs and egg whites with cottage cheese

Step 3: heat up the oats on a frying pan till they got golden brown (if feel like can also skip the step)
|Cut oranges in small pieces|
|cut and mix everything together|
Step 4: Mix all ingredients together. (this might sound odd to you but i love beautiful and colorful kitchen utensils and ceramics – the cooking is a lot more fun from a pretty ones. i love a lot my bf’s spaghetti bowl – just amazing 🙂 made my cooking frenzy more fun).
|press everything on a pan|
Step 5: pre-heat your oven to 150C. put everything on pan with a baking paper, press it good and put in an oven for 150C for 40min or cook till it gets browny-golden color.
And voilà! it’s ready. Cool it down and cut it into the small pieces as muesli bars or cookies. and if a chocolate lover you can also melt a dark chocolate in a hot water bath and pour it over them and you will get chocolate-orange muesli bars 🙂 (as not a chocolate lover than i don’t do it. but the possibilities are endless. just let your imagination wild and try it for yourself.
