Baked Breakfast Bars with Muesli & Raspberries

Baked breakfast bars with muesli and raspberries

Lately a lot of wonderful things have been happening and everything suddenly seem to speed up. It is not more than 8 months since I started blogging and I am still surprised how much feedback and wonderful comments I receive from all of you. Every time I get a new like on Facebook or a new follower on Instagram??? it makes me so happy and I keep getting surprised that so many people learn about the blog and that it just doesn’t seem to stop but actually just takes on speed, AWESOME!
Some of my work has been featured on different webpages, magazines and lately the guardian cook has started to feature my recipes too. It is such an honour to be??? recognized??? for what I do and love, and it makes me wanna try even harder; keep on developing, cooking, adjusting and experimenting in order to make the best recipes possible.
A couple of weeks ago I received an email from a PR-bureau asking me if I would be interested in experimenting with some organic, partly fairtrade and whole??? products from Urtekram. Since this organic brand is a??? favourite of mine I did not hesitate to say yes and since then I have received a wonderful package filled with organic grains, seeds, honey, jams etc. and as some of you have already seen on Instagram, these products have been converted into hot ‘breakfast’ stuff.

Honey and breakfast bars

This time I wanted to make an easy, delicious and healthy breakfast which is actually possible to grab on-the-go without having to be in a cup. This recipe is related to baked oatmeal but it is a more firm and dense version of the classic recipe. I have used a spelt & date muesli from urtekram. Since the muesli is filled with lovely pieces of dried dates and roasted coconut flakes you don’t really need to add any extra crunch or dried fruit. This makes the recipe really simple and so easy to make – which is a really big plus when it comes to breakfast.

These bars are perfect as a breakfast meal. You’ll get protein from the dairy products (you can of course use non-dairy milk and yoghurt as well) natural fibres from the oat and spelt flakes, antioxidants from the berries and they are not sweetened too much or filled with processed carbohydrates. I love to serve them with a dollop of yoghurt or crumble them on top of a bowl with fruit and yoghurt. And those mornings where I am heading for the gym I like to grab a bar to-go.

Tea and breakfast bars

In my magic organic box I got many tasty products which I have used a lot. I have been making too many pancakes just in order to splash them with maple syrup and somehow jam has become a steady guest in my bowl of yoghurt. Even though most of the things I received are breakfast and snack products, I have actually included some crunchy quinoa flakes in my next savoury blog post – Can’t wait to share it with you!
But for now I really hope you’ll try these bars – they will change your mornings for sure at least when it comes to time…just make them today??? and you can stay 10 extra minutes in bed tomorrow.

Baked Breakfast Bars w. Muesli & Raspberries
Makes 12 bars
2 cups muesli w. dried fruit etc. – I used Urtekram’s spelt muesli w. dates & coconut. (250 g)
1/2 cup rolled oats (50 g)
3/4 cup milk (200 ml)
3/4 cup thick cultured yoghurt, you can use various kinds as greek yoghurt, fromage??? frais, quark etc. (200 ml)
1 egg
2 ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries (200 g) -Keep a??? handful??? berries as topping.
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cardamome
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground vanilla or extract
3 Tbsp aromatic honey – I used a thick wild flower honey from Urtekram (60 g)
A pinch of salt.

Preheat oven to 180???º C/350 ???°F.??? Mix all wet ingredients together (milk, yoghurt, banana, honey & egg). Then add the rest of the ingredients and mix until everything is combined.
In a greased or lined baking pan (20 x 30 cm ) (8 x 12 inch) pour in all of the batter and spread it out evenly. Top it with a few berries to make it look even more tasty, and then you bake it in the oven for 30 min.
When the cake is done remove and set a side to cool. When the cake is completely cooled down, remove it from the pan and use a sharp knife to cut it into 12 breakfast bars.

The bars freeze well and they stay moist and delicious in the fridge for up to 5 days. I like to make a big portion and freeze half of it in single portions on order to have a easy breakfast or snack on busy days.

Eat the bars as they are, on-the-go, with a cup of coffee or serve them with a dollop of yoghurt or crumble them on top of your favourite fruit or yoghurt bowl :)

Bonus Info: Each bar contains 150 kcal (depending on which muesli you use). A proper breakfast meal could be 2 bars with a dollop of yoghurt and a few fresh berries on top.

Happy mornings and love

  • I just came across your blog today (through your amazing instagram account!) and am absolutely in love – the beautiful recipes, the fantastic styling and the gorgeous photographs. I will definitely be back soon to peruse the archives!

    • Hi Sophia, so great and THANK you! It’s wonderful to hear that Instagram actually leads people to the blog :) Hope you’ll get a lot of inspiration in here!
      All the best from Josephine

  • ARG hvor l???¦kkert! Det skal s???¥ meget pr???¸ves og jeg har endda alle ingredienserne :-O
    Jeg har virkelig haft problemer med de dage hvor jeg tr???¦ner om morgenen og skal direkte i skole bagefter. Der bliver jeg n???¸dt til at spise min morgenmad imens jeg kl???¦der om, og det er ikke nemt at finde en opskrift p???¥ noget der er let at transportere og nemt at spise, n???¥r det jo helst skal ske inden for 30 min. efter ens tr???¦ning (l???¦s: har f???¥et et par blikke n???¥r jeg har st???¥et og fumlet med en b???¸tte med skyr, en med branflakes, og en pose med udsk???¥ret frugt nede i omkl???¦dningsrummet ;-) ) De her barer kommer mig s???¥ meget til gode, tusind tak for det!!

    • Hahaha, okay det var et fantastisk billede jeg lige fik der. Jeg har virkelig ogs???¥ st???¥et og snasket med morgenmad utallige gange, men hey, det er sgu os der f???¥r noget ordentlig i skrutten og ikke bare en croissant og latte fra 7 eleven til at restituere p???¥ :) Sk???¸nt du kan bruge opskriften, h???¥ber de bliver sk???¸nne!

      • Jeg er i helt samme mening – hellere en upraktisk madpakke end ingenting! I dag blev det til en hjemmelavet peanutbutter/banan-milkshake h???¦ldt i en vandflaske og en rugbr???¸dsklapper med spejl???¦g og salat i staniol – selvf???¸lgelig skulle rugbr???¸det krumme og falde fra hinanden! ;-)
        For reste, blev rigtig glad for at se at du havde skrevet kalorier p???¥, for s???¥ er det nemmere at vide hvor meget af “bradepanden” man kan spise. Jeg har nemlig en kostplan jeg skal f???¸lge (for mit vedkommende er det for IKKE at tabe mig), s???¥ nogle gange er det sv???¦rt at pr???¸ve nye ting hvis jeg skal v???¦re sikker p???¥ at jeg f???¥r nok uden selv at skulle g???¥ igang med beregningerne. Det ville v???¦re fantastisk hvis du kunne g???¸re det igen :-)
        Jeg bliver superinspireret af din blog, thumps up herfra!

  • I’ve just discovered your blog and all its goodness, am not surprised you’re getting so much love and attention! These bars are no exception, they look delightful.

    • Oh thank you so much – (see here is one of those comments that makes my day!!) Wonderful to hear, hope you’ll find lot of inspiration here :)

  • Haps – dem vil jeg lave snarest!! De ser for gode ud.
    Din blog er virkelig fin med super flotte billeder og l???¦kker mad!

  • These bars look great! The raspberries make them so pretty! I have been blogging for a little over a year and am amazed at the different cool things that happen.

  • Dear Josephine! once again a beautiful post with wonderful pictures! You are very talented!!

  • Homemade breakfast bars are always better than store bought, and these look absolutely delicious. I love your blog and look forward to seeing more!

  • Kan man udskifte bananer med noget andet? Jeg er nemlig ikke s???¥ pjattet med bananer ;)

    • Hej Carina. Du beh???¸ver ikke at putte banan i, den giver en dejlig konsistens og lidt s???¸dme, men det kan godt g???¥ an uden. Jeg vil dog lige sige at banan smagen p???¥ igen m???¥de tr???¦nger igennem, s???¥ m???¥ske du skulle gi den en chance :)

      • Det kan godt v???¦re, jeg skal pr???¸ve dem med s???¥ :) Men jeg synes bare altid, man kan smage tingene, hvis man ikke kan lide dem, selvom andre siger, man ikke kan smage det – kender du det ;)?

  • Har lige bagt dine barer og skal til at sk???¦re dem ud, men s???¥ blev jeg lige i tvivl om st???¸rrelsen. I dine barer er der 152 kcal i hver, men ved du hvor meget de vejer? S???¥ har jeg noget at g???¥ ud fra n???¥r jeg ellers ikke ved hvor mange kcal der er pr. 100 g. Gl???¦der mig til at smage dem, de dufter for vildt!

    • Jeg har desv???¦rre ikke vejet dem, og har faktisk lige spist den sidste jeg havde, s???¥ jeg kan ikke hj???¦lpe lige her :(

      • Det er s???¥ iorden :-) Kan du skrive det n???¦ste gang du laver dem?

  • Thease bars taste so good. MUCH better than any other bars I have tried. But my batter was very liquid, and they ended up with a burnec crust and a bit raw in the middle. And the consistency is hard to ignore, which unfortunately makes them not so delicious… Any idea what I did wrong? I used 200 g almondmilk and 200 g fromage frais. Can I save the next portion by baking then longer at e.g. 170*C?

    It???´s an amazing blog you have here, beautiful layout and delicious reciepes. Good job :)

    • Hi Randi. Oh no, that’s not good. I actually just realised that I only baked mine at 180 C (SO SORRY, it is corrected in the recipe now) so yes definitely try heating the oven to maybe only 175 C next try, bet that would make a big difference. In relation to the texture of the batter, I would recommend you to add an extra hand full of oats, just to be sure that all of the liquid get soaked. Glad the taste was good though, and hopefully you’ll get a perfect result with the next portion :)

  • Hej!
    Jeg blev anbefalet din side af din veninde Line.
    Generelt hygger jeg mig med at l???¦se din blog, og nu har jeg lige bagt disse fantastiske m???¼slibarer og er S??â?¦ vild med dem! De smager fantastisk og passer lige ind i mine morgenrutiner :-)
    Tak for en hyggelig side og sk???¸nne opskrifter :-)

    • Hi Helene. Hvor dejligt at de faldt i god jord, og hvor er det sk???¸nt at bloggen bliver anbefalet mund til mund. Jeg er glad for at du nyder indl???¦ggende og opskrifterne :)

  • They look lovely and I would love to make these but cannot have oats/gluten – could I substitute something else in their place please?

    • Hi Rosemary. I would actually just suggest that you buy gluten free rolled oats. These should be available in most supermarkets or health stores, and are guaranteed to be 100 % gluten free.

      • Have tried these too and I find that they also upset me.

        • Hi Rosemary. What exactly do you mean? Are the recipe not working as it should?

          • Nothing to do with the recipe, it’s just that I can’t tolerate the gluten free oats either.

          • Of course, sorry got a little of track here :) Well, then I would actually suggest you to use buckwheat. Either flakes or whole buckwheat. Just adjust the amount of fluid/grain so that the texture of the batter will still be like thick porridge.

          • Thanks I’ll have to try that.

      • Unfortunately I still have problems with GF oats.

  • I baked them today and I love them, I will try to adapt it for my baby! I found some Urtekram products in my supermarket (Jag bor i Sverige) and will explore more of you recipes. Your website is dreamy, it makes me want to try so many recipes..on a budget. I am a serving platters lover and drool regularly over your blog.

  • Hej,
    Har l???¦nge elsket denne opskrift, men har ikke rigtig f???¥et bagt disse herlige barer efter at have boet i USA i lidt mere end et ???¥r. Heldigvis kom jeg i tanke om dem, da jeg ville bage sidste weekend. Jeg havde de fleste ingredienser, men ingen ???¦g eller yoghurt, s???¥ jeg bagte dem med flax-???¦g og chia-fr???¸ – hvilken succes! T???¦nkte at jeg lige ville dele ideen om at g???¸re barerne veganske
    – Sofie

  • I would love to make this recipe but since I can’t get the same product Urtekram muesli, with what I can substitute the 2 cups?

    • Hi there. You can simply substitute it with rolled oats :)

      • Thanks, I thought so. And, I guess I would probably add some dry fruits. Should I change the quantity of the wet ingredients?

        • Nope, just stick to the amount in the recipe :)
