Apple, Apricot & Muesli Breakfast Bars

Who doesn’t like a good apple pie. The warm cinnamony flavor, the buttery shortcrust it can make everything in this world all right. Apple Pie was actually my introduction to baked goodies beyond cakes and cookies, before I had tasted apple pie in my life I always thought that baking means cakes and cookies and then on one trip to Khan market mum bought me a slice of apple pie, the taste of that is still fresh in my mind.

Apple, Apricot & Muesli Breakfast Bars

These Apple, Apricot & Muesli Breakfast Bars draw their inspiration from Apple pie’s flavours but a slightly less indulgent for one it uses half muesli and whole wheat and two the amount of butter is not that much as a shortcrust. This at home is probably one of the most favorite indulgent breakfasts. Perfect for weekend breakfasts may be supplemented with a fried eggs or a glass of milk on the side or a perfect weekday breakfast with a cup of coffee. It works very well in the kiddie snack box, infact when I make this my 8 yr old insists he needs to take a snack box to school when actually school provides snacks

Ingredients

For the filling
Medium sized apples
2
Chopped dry apricots
½ cup
Cinnamon powder
1 tsp
Butter
1 tbsp
Brown sugar
1 tbsp
For the crust and topping
Whole wheat flour
1 cup
Brown sugar
¼ cup
Melted butter
¼ cup

Steps

  1. Pre heat the oven to 180C, grease and line a 8 inch square baking pan with a parchment paper. Keep aside
  2. Wash, core and chop the apples in a small pieces. I like the texture of the peel in my bars however if it bothers you please peel the apples before chopping. Mixed chopped apples, chopped apricots, cinnamon powder, brown sugar and butter together. The recipe works very well with tart apples like Granny smith but if you are using local crisp apples just add a tsp of lemon juice for tartness. Keep aside (Read for information on what apples to use for baking in India)
  3. For the crust and bottom, mix all the ingredients well till it feels crumbly.
  4. Now pour half the crust in the prepared pan and press it down well. Pour the apple mixture and spread evenly. Pour the rest of the crust on top and press it down again.
  5. Bake in a pre heated oven for 45 minutes till it is set and lightly browned.
  6. Let it cool completely before cutting into slices. The bars can be stored in an airtight container upto 5 days and frozen for upto 3 months.
