Millet Bars

I had one of those days in the kitchen where I used up bits and pieces of things that needed using up and these Millet Bars are an outcome of that. We enjoyed them as an afternoon snack under a picture perfect blue sky and just like the brazil nut balls we made recently these could be adapted in so many ways. I would love to hear any suggestions for other flavour combinations?

Millet Bars
(makes approx 12)

1/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup brown rice syrup
1 tbs unsulphured black strap molasses
2 tbs orange juice
2 cups puffed millet
1/2 cup goji berries
zest of one orange
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
2 tbs cacao nibs

Place the first three ingredients in a saucepan over a lowish heat until runny and combined
Add the 2 tbs orange juice to this mix
Place the remaining ingredients in another bowl
When the peanut butter mixture is runny and combined add this to the remaining ingredients
Mix until we combined
Spoon the mixture into a 20 x 30cm tray and press down with the back of a spoon or your fingers until flat
Place in the fridge to firm up
Cut into your desired shape bar and serve as you wish.
