Homemade muesli bars

Homemade muesli bars are simple to make and you can even experiment with different nuts and seeds to create something that suits your tastes.  Make a double batch and keep half in the freezer for those times when you've got nothing at home but want a tasty, nourishing snack. 

Prep Time 15 minutes
Refrigeration time 45 minutes
Servings 16 bars

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup linseeds (flaxseeds)
  • 1/4 cup cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup cranberries
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil or substitute butter
  • 80 grams dark chocolate

Instructions

  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Place a small pot over a medium heat and add together the honey, peanut butter and oil, heating for around 5 minutes.
  2. Gently stir the mixture as it heats, being careful it doesn't burn.
  3. Pour the honey mixture over the seed and nut muesli mixture and mix well. Spoon into a lined slice tin and press down well with the back of a spoon. If using the chocolate, melt the chocolate then drizzle over the top.
  4. Place in the fridge for around 30-45 minutes, or until set and cut into squares.

  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
