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.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
- Place baking paper in a rectangular tin
- In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients together
- 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
- Put mixture into the prepared tin and firmly pat it down
- Place in the fridge to set (at least an hour)
- 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.
