Core Muesli Bar Base - Oven or Slow Cooker

Serves: 12

Basic recipe
  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup stewed apples
  • 150ml non-fat milk
  • 100ml water
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp vanilla

To here is Core for a meal (32 pts if not Core)

Additional non-Core Ingredients:
Add your choice of dried fruits, nuts and seeds and calculate the Points.
I added 1/2 cup sultanas, 1/4 cup craisins, 1/2 cup pepitas and 1 TB linseeds (12.5 pts of non-Core ingredients, or 34.5 pts total)

Method B:
Press mix down into sprayed pan or slow cooker insert.
Oven - Bake in moderate oven until the slice begins to brown around edges.
Slow Cooker - cook for 2-3 hours on high until the slice begins to brown around edges. Turn off and allow the insert to cool before slicing up. If you have a lot of condensation inside the lid, you might want to wipe the lid. I cooked mine in the slow cooker.
To here is Core (32 pts if not Core)

Not on Core? The total Points for this recipe is 34.5 pts with listed additional ingredients or 3pts each serving 12.
On Core, you'll need to add 1 pt per serve for fruit and seeds as listed.

Core Inside-Out Chicken Kiev

Serves: 4-6  (makes 12)
Difficulty: Easy
  • 450g chicken breast fillet
  • 6 thin slices of virginian ham (140g) or 12 thin slices of a small round smoked leg ham
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 1 TB crushed garlic (or more if you love garlic)
  • 12 tsp breadcrumbs (I used Krummies multigrain)
Chop the chicken breast finely to approx 5mm. This is easier when it is partly frozen
Add chicken, oil and garlic to a bowl and mix.
If you have time, cover bowl and leave to marinate in the fridge for a few hours. Due to a change in plans, mine marinated for 30 hours.
Spray a 12 x 1/2 cup muffin tray with a little oil.
Line each cup with a slice of ham.
Divide the chicken mix into each cup.
Top eaxh cup with 1 tsp breadcrumbs.
Bake in middle/bottom of an oven preheated to 200*C for 10-15 minutes.
If your oven has a top element, keep an eye on to ensure the crumbs do not burn.

Not on Core? The total Points for this recipe is 17 pts, or 4 pts serving 4 or 3 pts serving 6.
