2 cups of cornflakes (160g).
1/4 cup unsalted cow butter (60 g.)
3 kg tablespoon Bee Good honey with hazelnut paste (60 g)
1/4 cup brown sugar (60 gr)
Mix 1/4 cup dried fruit (black raisins by Princess Raisin, cranberries, Goji berries by Biodinami)
1/4 cup roasted almonds
1/4 cup roasted hazelnuts
1. Preheat the oven on 180 degrees (in the air mode). In a pan for cookies, spread the nuts and roast them for a few minutes. You will understand that they are ready once they get a golden color. Remove the pan from the oven and let cool down for 5-10 minutes. Then, throw them in a food multi mixer and stir them for couple of seconds. Be careful not to become dust, because we want them coarsely chopped.
2. In a deep bowl mix the cereals, the nuts and the dried fruit lightly with a spoon. Now you can begin to prepare the syrup.
3. Place a small metal pan over in low heat and add the butter, the sugar and Bee Good. Stir until sugar is completely melted and form a rich syrup. Remove from heat and let cool down for 5 minutes.
4. After a while, pour the cereal and mix well with a spatula or better with your hand wearing a glove, so as to cover the mixture of syrup.
5. Put the mixture to a baking pan and push strongly using your palm and your fingers so as to come up a uniform and compact surface. Particularly emphasize on the corners. Cover with a sheet of film and place in refrigerator to stabilize for 2-3 hours. When it’s ready, cut it in sticks with a sharp knife or even better with the bread knife.
Wise Greece products we used:
* You can substitute dried fruit of your choice (such as prunes, apricots, blackberry etc.)
* Preferred good quality butter, if you use margarine change the final result completely.
* If you don’t have hoop, you can replace it with a square baking pan with the same dimensions.
* Store the bars in the refrigerator in a Tupperware or metal pan and they can be kept for about 15 days.
