Renee has discovered a delicious and easy-peasy muesli bar recipe!
Yummy, Healthy and Versatile Muesli Bars
These DIY muesli bars are easy and fast to make, there is no baking required and the best thing is that you KNOW what is in them. No additives at all, and you can choose how much sugar you put in. The recipe is just a guide, but once you have made it for the first time, feel free to adjust it and use whatever is in the cupboard! This is a generous batch, making approximately 16 bars, so feel free to halve it to make less. If you are halving it, I would stick with honey and leave the coconut sugar out.
- 1 ½ cups nut butter – choose your favourite! I do half peanut and half almond butter
- ½ cup coconut sugar
- ½ cup honey or maple syrup
- 1 cup of coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon tahini
- 3 cups rolled oats (or muesli if that’s what you have in the cupboard)
- ¼ cup pepitas roughly chopped
- ¼ cup of nuts roughly chopped – I like to use almonds or hazlenuts
- ¼ cup desiccated or shredded coconut
- ½ cup cranberries or sultanas
- ¼ cup dark chocolate, roughly chopped (the finer you chop in the more it will melt into the topping – so you choose!)
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
Grab a medium saucepan and place in it the nut butter, oil, coconut sugar and honey. Stir over medium-low heat until combined and smooth.
Remove from heat. Add tahini. Stir through.
In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients, except chocolate.
Pour oil/honey mixture over dry ingredients, mix through. Add chocolate and mix again.
Line 20x25cm slice tin with baking paper. Pour mixture in and press down firmly.
Refridgerate for minimum 2 hours.
Remove and cut into muesli bar sized rectangles. Makes approximately 16 bars.
Store in an air-tight container.
