Healthy Homemade Muesli Bars

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.

Get mixing!!

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!

Don’t forget the baking paper – save dishes where you can!!!

I usually include a bit of a mix of nuts, seeds, oats, dried fruit (and generally a handful – or two! – of choc chips).

Super yum and super healthy = super happy

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.

    Hey! So, I’m a complete newbie in the kitchen, just looking for something easy to do. Absolute first timer with cooking in general, so excuse the possibly dumb question. Is that 160 degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius? (I noticed a lot of blogs omit the Farenheit/Celsius thing and can you give me any tips on figuring which is which?)

    Also, if I’m not already intruding, are there alternatives to the 80g butter?

    Hope you can help me out!

      Hi Cara, all of my measurements are in celsius (that’s what we use in Australia). You could substitute it for margarine or even coconut oil if you like!
