    Absolutely yummy. I did use butter instead of coconut oil because I don’t like the taste of it but they turned out amazingly.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Yay!!! I’m thrilled that you enjoyed them! xx

  4. Jil says:

    Just made this, the mixture looks great. I had no puffed rice so I added a bit extra of the dry ingredients. Super easy in Thermie. Can’t wait for it to cool so we can try it

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Jill, perfect!! I love substituting rather than making another trip to the supermarket!!! I hope you enjoy them! xx

  5. Elisha says:

    Is there anything you would substitute for the nut butter? We go to a nut free kindy.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Elisha, I’d try these ones then: https://bakeplaysmile.com/easy-chocolate-chip-muesli-bars/ (you can always substitute the choc chips for dried fruit if you prefer). xx

  6. Bianca says:

    Delicious first time i’ve ever made home made muslin bars. I added extra trail mix and not the desiccated coconut, also used butter instead of avocado oil.
    Will definitely make again – THANK YOU
