I was craving for something sweet and grainy, fruity and crispy and soft all in one. I thought of something like a homemade fruit bar. It was 10 p.m. and that's the time when most German Shops are closed, so I had to improvise with the stuff I had at home.
Many variations with any kind of your favourite nuts and seeds are possible of course. This one is quite cool for quick and healthy breakfast, for taking it to work as a yummy snack if you need quick energy, and it's perfect for children at school or for sport. The cookies are not sticky at all in contrast to most muesli bars, not too sweet but super fruity.
Of course you could also add finely chopped dried fruit like raisins or figs or apricots or berries for more sweetness... let me know what you did!
2 small (or one average) sour organic apples
80-100 ml coconut milk
3 tbsp agave syrup
2 tsbp each of sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, linseeds, chopped cashews, tahini
4-5 tbsp rolled oats
dash of vanilla seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cardamom capsule, finely grinded
if necessary, a bit orange juice
for the sweet tooth: 1 tbsp mascovado sugar (not neccessary)
approx. 15-20 small circular rice papers
Grate apples very fine including skin. Add all except rice paper, mix very well and let steep for at least 10 minutes. Then work the dough well once again and form small balls about the size of big cherries. The consistence is quite fluffy, not too sticky, so if you have difficulties with rolling and it falls apart, add a bit more liquid and a bit of flour (only a small amount or you'll taste it afterwards!). Press balls on rice papers and slightly pat to flatten.
Bake 20-30 min. at 160°C (320°F). The outside should be slightly crisp and the inside soft and moist.
