Millet + Oats Spiced Breakfast Bars




  1. 2 cups organic finger millet flour
  2. 1 cup organic rolled oats
  3. ¾ cup light brown sugar (light muscovado sugar)
  4. 1 tbspn cacao powder
  5. 1 cup almonds, with skin, roasted and roughly chopped
  6. 1 tspn cloves, coarsely ground
  7. 1 tbspn dried lavender flowers (lightly ground between fingers) (optional)
  8. 1 cup yogurt
  9. 1 cup water
  10. ½ cup of peanut butter

–        Preheat your oven to 190C

–        In a large mixing bowl, mix all the dry ingredients (millet flour, oats, sugar, cacao, salt and ground cloves, and lavender (if using)). I used only ¾ cup of sugar, but you could use more sugar if you like.

–        In another bowl, thoroughly mix all the dry ingredients (yogurt, water and peanut butter).

–        Combine the dry with the wet ingredients well, and then fold-in the almonds.

–        Spread the mixture on a greased and lined baking tray, and bake for 22-25 minutes, till a toothpick/knife inserted in the centre comes out clean.

–        Let it cool, and cut into bars/squares. They keep well for 3-5 days in the fridge. Reheat them and spread some peanut butter before eating, for extra deliciousness!
