Does anyone have any awesome low-point meusli-bar recipes? I have a hideously fattening one - with honey, sugar, the works!
But I'd be keen to hear from anyone with a low-fat substitute!
Love these boards (& Dotti's!!) :)

Why don't you post your recipe, then someone (maybe me - AFTER Thanksgiving!) can rework it to lighten it for you -

Awesome idea!
Here we go:
60g butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1 tablespoon honey
2 cups cereal (bran flakes, rice bubbles etc.)

1. Mix cereals and chocolate chips in a large bowl
2. Melt butter in a saucepan
3. Add sugar and honey to butter and stir over a medium-low heat until it is a frothy
4. Pour bubbly mix into cereal bowl and combine.
5. Press into a greased tin and let set.

I love these! Any suggestions, low point variations are greatly appreciated!

just a thought to reduce the fat content of
your bars.....why not use a sugar substitute
such as equal or sugartwin, maybe do half the
sugar ,half the substitute. Also, maybe use
carob chips instead of chocolate chips though
chocolate chips are 1 pt per tbsp. Not to bad.

I'm not sure what you have in NZ, but I use a
product called I can't believe it's not butter spray. this has zero calories and no fat. that would be a good substitute for the
butter or again half in half. Is 60g equivelent to a stick of butter?

Hmmm, I think I will test this today and get back to you on it to see how it works out.
