Cranberry, Coconut and Goji Bars

Cranberry, Coconut and Goji Bars
These delicious snack bars taste great and smell amazing! Snack bars are the best because they are just so simple to make. All you need is a food processor and a few basic ingredients.

These bars get their colour from cranberries and are loaded with goji berries so are rich in antioxidants.

Store these in the fridge for a quick and easy snack for your toddler. They are also fantastic for lunch boxes.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup dried goji berries
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp sultanas

Method

Combine all ingredients in a food processor an blend until the mixture is fine and sticky.

Grab a little bit of mixture out and try to press it together with your fingers - if it seems too crumbly to hold together, add a few more sultanas or cranberries. If it seems too gooey, add some more coconut. Keep processing until the mixture is the right consistency.

Line a small loaf tin (about 10cm x 20cm) with baking paper and spoon the mixture in. Gently press it in and smooth it out evenly.

Cover the top with baking paper and use your hand to firmly and evenly press the mixture down. You want to compact it as much as possible.

Place the whole tin in the fridge for about an hour to harden up.

Once it is cold and has hardened, remove from loaf tin and cut into slices about 3cm wide.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge, separating any layers with baking paper to prevent them sticking together.

Makes 6 bars.

Will keep in the fridge for a few weeks, or the freezer for up to three months. They will be fine at room temperature for a few days, so are great for travel snacks and lunchboxes.


DID YOU KNOW...

  • Sultanas are a fantastic way of sweetening recipes without adding refined sugar, and toddlers love to snack on them. However, please be aware that they are extremely high in sugar and can cause tooth decay. Their sticky texture causes them to stick in your child's teeth and cause damage until their teeth are cleaned properly. Try not to offer your toddler dried fruits too often, and make sure you clean their teeth regularly.
