Make your own Muesli Bars

2016-07-10 19.11.31

When you go to the supermarket and buy your muesli bars, don’t be surprised to find lots of sugar and artificial ingredients in them. I usually choose to make my own and I can promise you, they don’t take long to make(approx. 10 minutes to make, half an hour to cook!). I usually make up a batch, cut them into bars, them freeze for a quick ‘grab and go!”

As I always say, when you make your own, you always have control over what ingredients go into your body and if you have fussy ones, you can give them choices as to what ingredients they would like to add. This will give them a sense of control and ownership over their food.

This recipe is a template/guide, so you can add in, omit or play around with the dried fruits, seeds, etc. You could even add in a few dark choc chips if you want, but not too many, as the dried fruit adds a lot of natural sugars, so you don’t want to overload them.

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1 cup Puffed cereal *I used a combination of puffed rice and puffed quinoa, but use whatever you have.
  • 1/3 cup Wholemeal Spelt flour *I use buckwheat flour to make gluten free
  • 2-3 Tbsp of mixed seeds *Sesame, pumpkin, chai, sunflower, flaxseeds. Either a combination or whatevr you choose
  • 2/3 cup Dried Fruits, chopped *These have cranberries, apricot and sultanas, as these are my daughters choices, but use what you like.
  • 2 eggs, preferably free range & organic
  • 100 Grams Butter or Coconut Oil
  • Optional extras, Choc chips, Nuts, Shredded coconut
Servings: Bars
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180C. Line a 20x30cm pan with baking paper.
  2. In a bowl, add your chopped dried fruit, oats, puffed cereals, flour, seeds, if any other optional extras (choc chips, shredded coconut, nuts). Combine to make sure all is mixed well.
  3. Melt your butter or coconut oil. Allow to cool a little, as you don't want to scramble your eggs! Add your eggs to your butter/oil and whisk together.
  4. Combine with your dried mixture and mix to it all combs together and is well coated.
  5. Firmly press into your prepared pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool slightly, then cut into bars. I usually get 16bars, but it depends how thick you cut them.
