A few nutritious facts about pistachios…
Although pistachio nuts have high-fat content, most are unsaturated fats that may not be fully absorbed into the body. Their energy density, protein and high-fibre content helps reduce overeating.
Simply shelling and eating pistachios one-by-one slows consumption, allowing you to feel full more easily.
Pistachios contain 3 grams of fibre, 6 grams of protein, and 11 grams of heart-healthy fat per serving – about 49 nuts = 100 calories!

Chop the pistachios coarsely and banana chips finely. Partly crush the cornflakes. Cut the pears and apricots into small cubes.
Heat the honey and sugar and mix in the pistachios, banana chips, cornflakes, pears, apricots and oat flakes. Spread the mixture in a square dish lined with baking paper (24 x 24 cm), approximately 1.5 cm deep and press well into the dish. (Alternatively, the bars can also be formed individually and then be put on a baking tray lined with baking paper.)
Bake the mix in a pre-heated oven at 180°C (gas mark 3, fan oven 160 °C) for about 10-15 minutes. Cut into bars of approximately 4 x 6 cm and leave to cool on a tray.
