The sisters’ novelties for the four-legged family members has inspired Anna to create a dog biscuit recipe.

Anna’s recipe becomes approximately 45 dog biscuits depending on thickness and shape.

Ingredients:
600 ml oatmeal
200 ml rye
150 ml wheat flour
1 tsp oil
100 ml boiling water
50 ml beef or chicken broth*
2 eggs

Mix all the ingredients. If the dough is really sticky, add more oatmeal. If it seems too dry, add more oil or water.

Roll out the dough onto baking paper and cut out the biscuits. Place the dog biscuits on a couple of baking trays, and if you would like, you can brush them with a bit of broth.

Bake the dog biscuits in the oven at 180 degrees for about 45 minutes until golden and crispy.

*You can make your own broth or buy one with a low salt content.

Using Søstrene Grene’s organic muesli, it is easy to make your own flavourful muesli bars – a perfect lunch box treat. Find Anna’s recipe for muesli bars which can be made both with and without added sugar.

Muesli bars are a crunchy and delicious treat, and using Søstrene Grene’s organic muesli it does not take much shopping or many preparations to make your own flavourful muesli bars.

Use Søstrene Grene’s organic muesli to make deliciously crunchy and filling muesli bars, adding your own favourite ingredients for even more flavour. Anna loves cranberries, but you can easily replace the dried cranberries with whatever your children or family may prefer.

Anna suggests raisins, nuts or good-quality dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces. Or you can simply add whatever ingredients you may already have in your cupboards. In this way, the muesli bars can also help prevent food waste.

To make the muesli bars look particularly inviting and easy for your child to handle, wrap each bar in parchment paper and tie with a piece of string. For a more filling lunch box treat, try Anna’s recipe for great-tasting lunch box bread with vegetables and cheese, which works both as a snack on its own or with a sandwich filling.

Anna and Clara wish you joy in your efforts.

Makes: 10 muesli bars

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Baking time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

175 g organic muesli from Søstrene Grene

25 g popped quinoa from Søstrene Grene

2 tbsp dried cranberries from Søstrene Grene

1 egg

1-3 tbsp of Søstrene Grene’s syrup with caramel and vanilla – for sweeter bars, just add more syrup. For muesli bars with only natural sugar, just omit the syrup.

Method:

In a bowl, beat the egg lightly. Add the syrup and the dry ingredients and mix well.

Line a tin (approx. 10 cm x 30 cm) with baking paper and spoon in the muesli mixture. Press into the corners and flatten the mixture. You may like to place a sheet of baking paper on top to make it easier to flatten using a spoon or your fingers. Remove the top sheet of baking paper and place the tin in the middle of a preheated oven at 175°C. Bake for 25 minutes.

While still warm, remove the baked muesli mixture from the tin and score into bars using a sharp knife.

Place the muesli bars in a cake tin and store in a dry and cool place for up to one week.

With Søstrene Grene’s organic baking mix for cold-raised rolls, it is easy to make tasty bread for the children’s lunch boxes. Ideas for a vegan alternative are also provided.

Hearty snacks are a hit with active children, and with Anna’s recipe it does not take much shopping or many preparations to make delicious bread for the children’s lunch boxes – note, however, that the dough must be mixed the day before you want to bake the bread.

Vegetables and cheese are added for lots of flavour. Anna has added carrots and feta, but these ingredients can easily be replaced with, for example, grated courgette and mozzarella, or other favourite flavours.

Anna’s recipe can also be used to make vegan lunch box bread. Simply replace the cheese with, for example, grated courgette or 100 ml of seeds for a vegan variant. The bread is very tasty as it is and works well as a snack – but can also be used for sandwiches with the children’s favourite fillings. For a sweeter lunch box treat, try Anna’s recipe for crunchy muesli bars either with or without added sugar.

The sisters suggest using any bits of cheese or vegetables which may be lying around in the fridge anyway. The lunch box bread works well with a variety of flavours, which helps reduce food waste.

Anna and Clara wish you joy in your efforts.

Makes: 20 wedges of bread

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Baking time: 15 minutes

 

Ingredients:

10 g yeast

500 ml lukewarm water

1 bag of ‘Organic Overnight’ baking mix from Søstrene Grene

50 g feta or other cheese

4 tbsp oil

3 small carrots

 

Method – day 1:

Dissolve the yeast in lukewarm water. Add oil, grated carrot and crumbled feta or cheese and stir the dough. Add flour a little at a time using a spoon. The dough should be quite wet and therefore requires no kneading. Cover the bowl and place in the fridge overnight.

Method – day 2: 

Preheat the oven to 230°C (conventional oven). Take the dough out of the fridge and line a baking sheet with baking paper. Pour the dough onto the baking sheet and flatten using two spoons. The dough should look like a rectangular pizza base about 1 cm thick. Place the bread in the oven and immediately turn down the heat to 210°C. Bake for 15 minutes.

Remove the bread from the oven and leave to cool on a rack. Cut the bread into wedges or other bite-sized shapes. The bread keeps in the fridge for up to a week and is also suitable for freezing – making sure you always have a healthy snack for the lunch boxes.
