3 Tbsp Honey
200gm Yoghurt (any flavour)
1 1/2 - 2 cups diced fresh fruit
This recipe couldn't be easier!
Simply combine all ingredients in a large bowl, then press onto a pre-oiled Solid Sheet about 5mm thick.
Dehydrate for 20-24 hours at 55 deg C. Cover with a thin layer of yoghurt about half way through drying process.
When ready, muesli bars should be dry, but not crumbling.
Cut into any shape you like, then enjoy!
Any fruit leathers can be made into jam. Simply cut the leather into small pieces with scissors, then place in a bowl & barely cover with boiling water. Leave to soak for 1 hour.
Place in a blender & mix until smooth. There is no need to add sugar as it will be sweet enough.
One cup of finely chopped leather, barely covered with boiling water makes one cup of jam.
Enjoy on your toast & sandwiches!
