Muesli bars kids will eat

I’ve tried making numerous different muesli bars for my kids but with very little success. They were either tasteless, too crumbly or way too many ingredients that I couldn’t be bothered. I came across a recipe from the toddler ingredient and the yummy ingredients caught my eye as well as it appearing easy enough to make.  So I decided to give it a go but altered the ingredients slightly based on what I had in the pantry.


All ingredients in one bowl

The kids happily gave them a try and loved the peanut butter taste. The fact there were chocolate chips in there may have also enticed them to give it a try. I found them tasty, not dry and quite moorish – there weren’t many left to freeze for school lunches or daily snacks so I’ll be making another batch soon!



  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 3 heaped tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup of dried fruit
  • 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup of ground chia seeds


  1. Place baking paper in a rectangular tin
  2. In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients together
  3. Using a spoon mix all the ingredients together. Then using your hands continue to mix until it forms a thick mixture that’s not too crumbly – this bit is messy! If the mixture appears too crumbly, add some water
  4. Put mixture into the prepared tin and firmly pat it down
  5. Place in the fridge to set (at least an hour)
  6. Cut into slices

These will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks or in the freezer for three months – if they last that long!

Give them a go and let me know what you think.
