Peanut-So-Brittle Muesli Bars

So the other half of the peanuts went to my lovely work colleague who attempted peanut brittle for the first time

It was no so brittle - I always find sugar work is really temperamental - I can't say I would even attempt it!  But neither of us like food wastage and the peanuts were covered in a sugary buttery coating which realistically is the basis for most baked goods. 

So here we have another recipe not really about health but about not wasting food :-) I wouldn't normally recommend as much sugar as is in this recipe but it was already half made so just enjoy a pretty decent workout after these!

Ingredients: 
  • 4 cups peanuts
  • 3 cups caster sugar
  • 150gm butter
(The above was ready made into a pseudo toffee)
  • 2 1/2 cups quick oats
  • 2 eggs
  • desiccated coconut to sprinkle
Method:
  1. Just melt together the sugar, butter and peanuts add about 1 cups of water in a pot on the stove, do this slowly enough so as though it doesn't burn
  2. With a stick whiz, blend the mixture in the pan so it is broken up a little
  3. Let the mixture cool for 5-10mins and add to the oats in a large mixing bowl
  4. Combine well then add 2 beaten eggs and pour into a lined slice tin
  5. Sprinkle with coconut
  6. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 45mins.
