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.

With a new season coming, Anna has been in the kitchen to experiment with a recipe for iced coffee that will do well on warm days. In case you, like Anna, enjoy a sweet-tasting ice coffee, the sisters’ caramel and vanilla syrup can be the finishing touch.

Tip: Avoid a thin and watery iced coffee by using ice cubes made of coffee rather than water. Instead of throwing old coffee away, you can freeze coffee left-overs in ice cube trays. That way, you will always have ice cubes ready for your iced coffee.

A food collection overflowing with a love of food, organics and culinary experiences

Søstrene Grene’s food collection has been developed with a strong focus on great flavours and organic produce. A third of the products are organic.

We can’t eat more, but we can eat better. This is the mantra behind Søstrene Grene’s food collection which is all about the love of food, about sharing meals and about culinary experiences. An ambitious mantra.

To bring it to life, Anna and Clara have worked with food lovers, a former Michelin chef by the name of Torben Bager and pioneers from the worlds of gastronomy and organics to develop unique products that elegantly combine the great joy of eating honest food with quality, aesthetics and local ingredients.

A touch of Michelin

In collaboration with former Danish Michelin chef Torben Bager, Søstrene Grene has developed a wide range of unique delicacies available exclusively from Søstrene Grene. They include vinaigrettes, syrups, pickled vegetables and rich mayonnaises.

Torben Bager was very much part of the gastronomy scene as trends from the Nordic cuisine began to spread around the world. For a number of years, he has also used his skills to interpret gastronomic trends and develop products for the general public.

Focus on organics

A third of the products in Søstrene Grene’s new food collection are organic, and that is no coincidence. Anna and Clara are keen to make it possible for their customers to use organic products in their daily cooking.

Søstrene Grene’s organic products have been developed in collaboration with producers who carry the organic principles in their hearts and who are among the front runners in this field. One example is Aurion, a company based in northern Jutland, Denmark. Aurion has worked with organic and biodynamic grains and cereals since 1974, and is thus the oldest organic mill in Denmark. It was therefore with great confidence that Søstrene Grene started working with Aurion to develop Anna and Clara’s three organic baking mixes as well as a range of crispy granolas and muesli. The baking mixes are based on crops which have been ground in the old-fashioned way, on low-speed stone mills, to retain the quality of the grain as well as the natural vitamins and proteins which are so important to the taste.

In cooperation with another Danish company – Søbogaard – Søstrene Grene has developed a series of organic jams. Søbogaard is a small organic supplier of great-tasting products with a high fruit content. Søbogaard has supplied organic beverages to Søstrene Grene for decades.

Explore selected products from Søstrene Grene’s food collection

Rich mayonnaises

Søstrene Grene’s lemon mayonnaise is made with salted lemons from Morocco. Salted lemons originate from the North African cuisine, and salting is an ancient method of preservation, which adds a sublimely fresh and aromatic flavour. This mayonnaise is particularly good with: Peel-your-own prawns, steamed lemon sole, fried chicken, as a dip for vegetable crudités and with crisps.

Anna and Clara’s mayonnaise with Piment d’Espelette is strongly flavoured without being too hot despite the intense taste of chilli and bell peppers. And that is precisely what Piment d’Espelette peppers do – add a strong flavour without burning. This mayonnaise is particularly good with: Homemade burgers, as a dip for roast potatoes, in sandwiches, for example egg-and-avocado sandwiches, and with oven-baked salmon.

A food collection overflowing with a love of food, organics and culinary experiences

Flavour-enhancing syrups

Syrups can add new and wonderful flavours to food and beverages. The secret behind the syrups is the special method of preparation, whereby a relatively high fruit content contributes to creating a natural taste and perfect consistency. “The right, thick consistency is essential for the perfect result.” Anna and Clara’s syrups are available in four flavours: Caramel & vanilla syrup, Lemon & elderflower syrup, Strawberry & cranberry syrup, Passion fruit & ginger syrup.

The syrups work particularly well as toppings on yoghurt and ‘skyr’, on pancakes, with fruit and berries, as ice-cream toppings, on porridge or as a topping on crumbles. The syrups can also make a magical difference to your beverages – in hot or iced coffee, as flavour enhancers in smoothies and milk shakes or in drinks in general. Try a White Russian with caramel & vanilla syrup, a Gin & Lemon with lemon & elderflower syrup or a Strawberry Daiquiri with strawberry & cranberry syrup.

A food collection overflowing with a love of food, organics and culinary experiences

Pickled vegetables

If you travel along the Mediterranean coast and order a glass of chilled prosecco, it is often served with a bowl of pickled vegetables. Søstrene Grene’s three variants of pickled vegetables are inspired by Nordic cuisine and come in flavourful combinations.

Try Anna and Clara’s pickled carrots in vinegar and sea buckthorn which strike a perfect balance between the sweetness of the carrots and the sourness of the sea buckthorn. The sisters’ pickled beetroot with blackcurrant and aniseed has been pickled in vinegar cooked with green aniseed and flavoured with blackcurrant juice. The beetroot has been cut into sticks to stand out from the classic sliced beetroot. Anna and Clara’s fresh-tasting pearl onions are combined with lemon and sweet elderflower for a crisp bite and an exquisite balance between the floral and sweet elderflower and the fresh, acidic lemon flavour.

A food collection overflowing with a love of food, organics and culinary experiences

Organic jams rich in fruit

Anna and Clara’s jams are fruit-based and sweetened with cane sugar. The result is jam with the characteristic taste of late summer, which is when the sun-ripened fruit and berries are most flavourful due to their high fructose content. One variant is strawberry jam sweetened with apple juice.

The jam variants are perfect ingredients for magical shortcrust ´medals´ combined with the sisters’ custard cream, which is also part of the food collection.

A food collection overflowing with a love of food, organics and culinary experiences

Organic baking mixes, granolas and muesli

The range of organic baking mixes, granolas and mueslis has been developed in collaboration with Aurion. The products are based on organic ingredients and old crops like spelt, Dalar wheat and emmer that are rich in both nutrients and taste. The range includes classic Danish products like organic bread rolls, baguettes and a ryebread mix. The series also includes a pancake mix based on spelt for a nutty taste. And then there are the mueslis and granolas. What is so unique about the sisters’ mueslis and granolas is that all the flakes have been gently roasted for a deeper and better flavour.

Use the granola to make crispy cookies or discover just how easy it is to make tasty focaccias with olive and tomato using the sisters’ baguette mix. The same baking mix can also be used to make sweet seeded pastry with a Nordic twist

A food collection overflowing with a love of food, organics and culinary experiences

Antipasti series

Søstrene Grene is introducing a selection of delicious antipasti for tapas meals and other cosy get-togethers. Try green olives pickled in brine with white wine vinegar, or black olives from Italy, with a soft and rich consistency. The series also includes Italian caperberries and pickled artichoke hearts, tender but still with a bit of bite.

You might also like Anna and Clara’s olive tapenade with 81% ripe black olives, oil, parsley and garlic. Or try the green Pesto Verde, made with basil, Grana Padano, Pecorino and pine nuts, or the red Pesto Rosso made of juicy tomatoes, basil, vinegar, nuts and pine nuts and seasoned with salt, sugar and garlic. Use the creamy and mild Pesto Verde with pasta, chicken or charcuterie, or try the Pesto Rosso as a marinade for meat, fish and vegetables or mixed with mayonnaise for sandwiches.

Tasty vinaigrettes

Vinaigrettes can be used emulsified, warm or, of course, cold, as we know them. But especially warm vinaigrettes represent a whole new world of flavours, and Anna and Clara have been looking forward to presenting their four tasty vinaigrettes. Use the truffle vinaigrette with fried mushrooms and either squid or roast pork, or top your salad with the lemon vinaigrette which delicately balances the fresh lemon with the acidity of the vinegar and the richness of the olive oil.

The sesame soy vinaigrette is seasoned with soy sauce and toasted sesame oil and works extremely well with Asian cuisine. Try it with a noodle dish with crispy vegetables and fresh ginger, for example. Last but not least, the sisters’ sherry raspberry vinaigrette, which is made with olive oil, sherry vinegar and natural raspberry extract, is delicious with fried chicken drumsticks, for example.

Print-your-own invitations for birthdays, baptisms and other celebrations

With Søstrene Grene’s free printable invitations, it is easy to make personalised invitations with and for children.

“There is nothing quite like receiving a personalised invitation to a party,” believes Anna – and with Søstrene Grene’s free printable invitations, it is easy to combine an easy solution with a personal touch.

All you need is a printer for printing the invitations. In Anna and Clara’s mind, it is an excellent idea to let the child who is being celebrated colour in and personalise the illustrations. In this way, the invitation also becomes a personal drawing which is sure to bring joy if displayed on a notice board.

The printable invitation is available in two different designs, both inspired by the fairy tales from Søstrene Grene’s last collection for the youngest members of the family.

You can print both templates here:

Safe baby care with new bath and care series

Søstrene Grene is presenting its first series of indulgent bath and care products for the youngest members of the family. The series is gentle on the skin and produced in Denmark – a safe choice for both baby and parents.

Safe baby care with new bath and care series

It should be easy to make a safe choice when buying bath and care products for our children. Therefore, Søstrene Grene has launched a new bath and care series, designed specifically for the youngest members of the family. The series comprises four products – baby shampoo, baby bath soap, baby oil and zinc cream – that all are gentle on the skin and contain no perfume.

With the new series, Søstrene wants to contribute to making sure that the products applied to the skin every day are perfectly safe. It has therefore been particularly important to ensure that the products in the new bath and care series for babies meet the most stringent requirements, making sure that parents can safely pamper their little darlings with these new products.

To guarantee this, all the products carry labels which help us make conscious choices when buying bath and care products for ourselves and our children. The products in Søstrene Grene’s bath and care series therefore carry the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, the Asthma Allergy Nordic label, the Vegan Trademark and the Ecocert – Cosmos certification. 

The labels can be found on the packaging. Read more about the bath and care series labels here: https://sostrenegrene.com/da/maerkninger-og-certificeringer/

Safe baby care with new bath and care series

Mild shampoo for babies and children

The new shampoo in Søstrene Grene’s bath and care series is mild and contains no perfume. The product must be rubbed gently into the hair, and then rinsed with water. The mild formulation of the shampoo, which contains blueberry extract for example, makes the product equally suitable for washing the hair of babies as well as older children.

Baby shampoo. Price per item DKK 48.80

Moisturising bath soap for small children

Containing, for example, blueberries, aloe vera extract and glycerin, Søstrene Grene’s bath soap helps to preserve the natural moisture balance of the skin, leaving it feeling wonderfully soft. The bath soap can be added to the bath water or applied directly from the bottle to your child’s skin. Also suitable for older children.

Bath soap. Price per item DKK 48.80

Nourishing and softening zinc cream

Søstrene Grene’s baby zinc cream contains shea butter, sunflower oil, blueberry extract and aloe vera, which together have emollient, moisturising and curative properties. The cream has a high content of zinc oxide, which is good for sore baby bottoms and irritated skin in the nappy area.

Baby zinc cream Price per item DKK 18.80

Baby oil

Baby massage is a wonderful experience treasured by babies and parents alike. You can also add 1-2 drops of baby oil to the bath water for a special emollient and nourishing effect. Distribute the baby oil in water before lowering the baby into the bath – and when taking the baby out again, please note that his or her skin may be a bit slippery from the oil. Baby oil is also good for babies suffering from cradle cap. Leave the oil in the hair for a few hours before combing it with a fine-tooth comb to lift off the flakes.

Printable fairy tales for hanging on the wall or for reading out loud

Place Søstrene Grene’s printable fairy tales in a frame for displaying on the wall before reading them out loud as bedtime stories. Anna and Clara have written a number of rhyming fairy tales which are available in eight different languages.

“Big dreams aren’t only for those big and tall, dreams are what we’re made of, one and all.”

Thus ends one of Anna and Clara’s new fairy tales – with a fine message for the little darlings to fall asleep to. Both the sisters’ nephew and their nieces absolutely adore the fabulous fairy tales – and slightly older children, who are learning to read, can join in the reading and try to follow the rhythm of the rhymes as a fun and educational little exercise.

Printable fairy tales for hanging on the wall or for reading out loud

Ideas for use of printable fairy tales

A fairy tale on the wall
Quite apart from being magical stories, Søstrene Grene’s delicately coloured printable fairy tales are also extremely decorative – place them in a frame for displaying on the wall or on a shelf. It is then very easy to take down the frames and read out loud from them at bedtime.

A framed fairy tale as a gift
There is nothing like a personalised gift, according to Clara. A framed fairy tale makes a delightful addition to a present given for a birthday or a baptism, and an equally gorgeous present for the children’s room on its own. It is a gift with a personal touch which is sure to warm the heart of the recipient.

Display more fairy tales together
Hanging up a number of fairy tales together in the children’s room or in a reading corner is a wonderful and decorative way of spreading the delightful messages. Pick the fairy tale that appeals most to your family, or use a number of fairy tales to create a beautiful picture wall.

Materials:

  • Paper
  • Printer
  • Scissors
  • A5 frame

Method

1. Print the fairy tale.

2. Cut the fairy tale to size so that it fits the frame.

Get Anna and Clara’s delightful bead patterns

Søstrene Grene has developed two charming bead patterns inspired by a magical fairy-tale world and easy to make even for the littlest ones. Find the free printable template here.

Creating bead designs is an activity that encourages reflection and creates moments of ‘hygge’ on busy days. Anna treasures such moments, and she is therefore keen to share her printable templates for two of her own delightful bead designs.

Using Anna’s two bead patterns, the little ones can create their own fairy-tale castle and a knight’s horse. The bead patterns can either be placed under the pegboards, or you can encourage the child to count the rows based on the templates.

The bead patterns are inspired by ‘A fairy-tale world for children’, Søstrene Grene’s latest collection of new products for children’s rooms and play corners. Anna and Clara recommend this as a joint project for children and grown-ups.

Ideas for use of bead creations

Make a decorative mobile
It is important that the children’s creations are not just hidden away in a drawer, but treasured as the beautiful designs they are. A collection of bead designs can be turned into a decorative mobile – for the play room or a bedroom.

Decorative elements
Place the bead designs on a shelf, in a display box or on the desk as decorative elements.

Transform the bead designs into fridge magnets
Glue small magnets onto the back of the bead designs and turn them into fridge magnets – stick them onto your own fridge or use them as little gifts for family or friends.

Get Anna and Clara’s delightful bead patterns

Materials:

  • Bead patterns
  • Beads in different colours
  • Pegboard, square and transparent
  • Iron
  • Baking paper

Method

1. Place the square transparent pegboard plate on top of the bead pattern.

2. Find beads in different colours and place them on a dish or in a shallow bowl.

3. Let your child follow the chosen pattern, carefully placing the beads in the right places. If you place the pattern under the pegboard, it is easy to see how far you have come.

4. When all the beads have been laid and the bead design is finished, it should be ironed by an adult at medium heat and on both sides. Remember to use baking paper between the iron and the beads.

5. Leave the design to cool down. It is a good idea to place something heavy – like a book – on top to prevent the design from warping.

Personalised gift boxes for special occasions

Be inspired by Søstrene Grene’s ideas on how to easily create personalised gift boxes for baby showers, birthdays and other special occasions.

There is nothing like a lovingly personalised gift to warm the heart, if you ask Anna and Clara. A personalised gift box is a special way of presenting a special gift for a special person.

As the giver of a personalised gift box, allow plenty of time to pick just the right things – the recipient is sure to treasure a carefully designed box full of gifts selected specially for him or her.

Get inspiration for three different gift boxes – all based on the boxes which you will find in all Søstrene Grene stores. They are available in a multitude of different sizes – perfect for putting together the most gorgeous gift boxes. The box in which the gift is presented is like a gift in itself and ideal for keeping things in afterwards.

Personalised gift boxes for special occasions

Ideas for use of personalised gift boxes

A sweet gift for a baby shower
Take a personalised gift box along to a baby shower to help the future parents prepare for the arrival of their baby. You could, for example, place a towel at the bottom of the box together with a few toys, a baby bowl or plate, a teddy bear and some bath and care products.

A fabulous parent-child gift
Put together a fabulous gift box of products for a parent and child close to your heart. Indulge parent and child with a personalised gift box full of ‘hygge’ – for example, a good tea, a softening hand cream and something sweet to pamper the mother, and a teddy bear for the baby together with one of the products from Søstrene Grene’s bath and care series for babies.

A gift box full of surprises for a child’s birthday party
Put together a wonderful mix of gifts for a child’s birthday party – this is sure to bring joy as it is unwrapped and explored. Choose toys that are sure to delight – like a fun game or a set of decorative wooden figures. Or how about a decorative print-your-own fairy tale in a wooden frame to hang on the wall. No matter what you choose, Clara suggests that you always check the age recommendations on the things you put in the gift box, before giving it away.

Personalised gift boxes for special occasions

Materials:

  • Box from Søstrene Grene
  • Selected gifts from different categories

 

Method

1. Select the box you want to give the gift away in. This is always a good place to start.

2. Place a number of lovely things in the box. Once you have selected a few things, then think carefully about the product categories which you have included, and which may still be missing. It is always a good idea to put together a mix of fun, tasteful and practical products.

3. The box can either be presented to the recipient open, with the lid folded underneath the box – or closed with a ribbon around.
