Homemade muesli bars



This versatile recipe makes a great family snack - without the wrapper-guilt!
Add your family's favourite fruit and/or nuts and make this recipe your own. These muesli bars can also be dairy-free by replacing butter with coconut oil, or gluten-free by replacing the rolled oats with cornflakes.

Ingredients

1/2 cup of honey
1/4 cup brown sugar
100 grams coconut oil
50 grams butter (or 150 grams butter if you don't have coconut oil)
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups rice bubbles
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup LSA (ground linseed, sunflower and almond)
1/2 cup raisins, sultanas or currants
1/2 cup cranberries
1/2 cup dried apricots chopped

Optional:
Melted chocolate or lemon icing as a toping.

Method

1. Line a slice tray with baking paper and preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

2. Melt butter and coconut oil in a saucepan together with the honey and brown sugar. Stir until butter and oil have melted and sugar is dissolved and then boil for 3 minutes until the mixture has thickened. Remove from the heat.

3. Mix remaining ingredients together in a large bowl and then add hot syrup, stirring to combine.

4. Pour mixture into tray and press firmly - wet hands are helpful here.

5. Bake for 10 minutes, until golden.

6. Cool before decorating with melted chocolate or a thin lemon icing (optional... quite handy to make bars more attractive to kids though!).
