Breakfast Cereal Bars
0

1 post in this topic

Hi All:

I found this wonderful recipe for breakfast cereal bars and I wanted to share with people here.

I made them and they are very, very good.

A diabetic coworker of mine called them birdseed bars because I used millet seed instead of millet flake cereal.

I also substituted brown rice syrup for corn syrup which I don't like. But you could use maple syrup too.

The thing I really like about these bars is that they are not very sweet. I made the whitehouse fruit and oar bars recipe that I posted a few month ago and they are far too sweet for me. These are just right for me.

So here is the recipe:

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Grease an 11 x 8 inch shallow baking pan

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter softened

2 tbs light brown sugar (you could use agave too)

2 tbs light corn syrup (I subbed brown rice syrup because I hate corn syrup, you could also use maple syrup, too)

1/2 cup millet flakes (I used millet seeds)

1/4 cup quinoa grain

1/2 cup dried cherries or cranberries (I love dried cranberries because of the tartness of them)

1/4 cup raisins

1/4 sunflower seeds

3 tbs flax seeds

3 tbs sesame seeds

1/4 shredded, unsweetened coconut

2 eggs lightly beaten

Beat together the butter, sugar, and syrup until creamy

Add all the remaining ingredients and beat well until combined

Turn into the pan and level the surface

Bake for 35 minutes until deep golden.

Allow the pan to cool and turn out the bars onto a wooden surface and cut using a serrated knife.

Nutritional values:

Each bar (assuming 16 bars in all) has 156 calories, 3 grams of protein, 16 grams of carbs, 9 grams of fat, 1 gram of fiber, 54 mg of calcium, and 1 mg of iron

I am going to make these again soon.

I hope some of you try these.

If you use the millet seed, they really come out like birdseed bars but what is wrong with that?

And, best of all, they are not that sweet.

~Allison

    • mnburis, I'm concerned about your symptoms, especially the diarrhea being so frequent.  I experienced pellagra after prolonged diarrhea.   The symptoms are diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia and death.  Pellagra is a deficiency of niacin (B 3).  With your vitamin D and B 12 already diagnosed as low, you're very likely to be low in all the other vitamins and minerals as well.  The eight B vitamins are water soluble and need to be replenished every day.  The B vitamins all work together.  All should be supplemented if one is low.  Large doses of B 12 by itself can cause folate deficiency anemia if you're low in folate (B 9) already.  Ask your doctor about other vitamin deficiencies.  The easy ones to test for are D and B12.  Tell your doctor how severe your diarrhea is.  Ask about pellagra.  Here's some more information. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html https://www.dermnetnz.org/topics/pellagra/ I really hope this helps.  
    • thats so exciting! let me know if you need any help with finding gluten-free products or brands when you move here
    • I have had NO breath tests done. Just  blood, stool, colonoscopy and endoscopy. I'm sorry. I'm feeling so discouraged. I just know its going to be put down to IBS. And I personally feel  that IBS is a throw away diagnosis when no one wants to investigate further. 
    • Also, have you been tested for H. Pylori infection?  I think I have seen that many ulcers can be attributed to that. It is also diagnosed with a breath test.  Hang in there. Many people have been in your shoes.  I wish it were easier.
