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!

Step 1

Chop the pistachios coarsely and banana chips finely. Partly crush the cornflakes. Cut the pears and apricots into small cubes.

Step 2

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.)

Step 3

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.
