Recently I started to play around with baking again. I used to bake all the damn time in high school, heck I would even come home and make scones. It’s something I love doing and something I really missed when we lived in the apartment. There was a few things I could still bake with our tiny mini oven but some things just wouldn’t turn out well. Anyway I love following recipes but every now and again I like to play around and create my own. I basically wing it. Most of the times it’s a massive fail, but every now and again we have a golden winner in the mist. These honey bites are a winner for sure. It only took me two attempts to get the recipe right. It’s so good that I want to share it with you all. Just a quick note, it’s a very filling treat and super delicious.
Gluten Free Oats and Muesli Honey Bites Recipe
Serves 16 Honey Bites/Balls
Preparation time 15 minutes
Total time 40 minutes
Store in an airtight container and eat within 2 weeks. (Ours never lasted longer than that.)
100g Gluten Free Flour
1tsp Baking Soda
2tsp Baking Powder
260g Gluten Free Oats
400g Gluten Free Muesli (can be nuts & fruits muesli)
Optional: Handful of raisins/nuts per choice
- Pre-heat your oven at 180˚C and place baking paper on top of your oven pan.
- In one large mixing bowl, mix your ‘flour’ ingredients lightly. ‘Flour’ mixture is maizena, gf flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
- Make a little hole in the center of the flour and add your four eggs. Give it a light mix (doesn’t need to be completely mixed) and then proceed to add the oats and muesli.
- Add honey and mix. Mix until everything is coated and you can no longer see the white flour mixture at all. You will be able to tell when it’s properly mixed.
- Optional: You can add a handful of raisins or nuts per choice. You still want the mixture to be sticky and mostly coated with honey so don’t go overboard. If you do, just add more honey to save the day.
- Once everything is mixed, the honey bites are ready for the oven. Simply take a tablespoon to get the amount and then tightly press the mixture into a ball. You need to really compress this so be prepared for messy hands. You can also you an ice cream scoop for the amount.
- Place the balls with at least a 3cm distance between them on the prepared oven pan. Once you’ve rolled out all of your balls, drizzle some honey on top and then pop it into the oven for 15min – 25min or until golden.
Tsp = teaspoon
Maizena is a binding agent. You can use it in sauces to thicken them. Without this product the honey bites will fall apart when you bite into them.
That’s it! If you do ever end up making them, make sure to tag me and let me know what you think. My husband and I are obsessed with them and can’t stop eating them.
Thank you so much for reading and I will see you in a click!
