As you know I love to bake just as much as I love to eat (which is a lot!!!!). There is nothing better than a piece of homemade slice or a couple of biscuits for morning tea during the week.
The only problem is…. the weekdays are crazy busy and there isn’t much time to bake or make healthy snacks on a weeknight. So, these homemade muesli bars are great because they can be baked on the weekend and kept in the fridge for morning tea during the week.
My muesli bar recipes are never really the same, it’s just a case of chucking in whatever is in the cupboard at the time! Here’s one I made on the weekend which turned out very yummy!
I usually include a bit of a mix of nuts, seeds, oats, dried fruit (and generally a handful – or two! – of choc chips).
You really can’t beat homemade muesli bars – they are preservative and additive free, taste great, can be changed to suit the ingredients you like (or in my case – have in the cupboard!) and are wayyyyy cheaper than the supermarket versions!
Healthy Homemade Muesli Bars
1 banana (mashed)
2 eggs (lightly whisked)
80g butter (melted)
1/2 cup honey
2 1/2 cups of rolled oats
1/4 cup of coconut
1/2 cup of chopped almonds (or any nuts you like)
1/4 cup of sunflower seeds
1/4 cup of craisins
1/4 cup of sultanas or raisins
1/2 cup of choc chips
1 tsp of cinnamon
Step 1 – Mix all of the wet ingredients together
Step 2 – Add the dry ingredients to the bowl and mix together
Step 3 – Press the mixture down into a rectangular slice tray lined with baking paper
Step 4 – Bake in a 160 degree oven for about 30-40 minutes
Step 5 – Let the slice cool in the tin before taking out and cutting (this way you will be able to cut it evenly without it crumbling)
Step 6 – Place the bars in an airtight container lined with foil in the fridge. They will last for about 5 days.
