Someone asked me for a good home made muesli bar recipe this week and I think this one looks pretty good. Commercially produced muesli bars can be loaded with sugar and saturated or even hydrogenated fats and often don’t contain any natural fruit. Homemade muesli bars are a healthy snack you can put in your kid’s lunchboxes each day. You can be sure of the ingredients and you can add your own touches.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried apricots, diced
  • 1 cup sultanas
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup sunflower kernels
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds(optional)
  • 1/4 cup plain flour
  • 60g butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk

Method

Preheat your oven 180 degrees for about 20 minutes (this is important as the first time I baked these they were too soft on the bottom)

In a large bowl mix together the oats, sunflower kernels , almonds, flour, apricots and sultanas.

Melt the butter or margarine, honey and brown sugar in the microwave for 1 minute and add to dry ingredients. Stir in the egg and milk until well combined.

Press into a greased and lined baking tray and bake for 15 minutes at 180 degrees C.

Cut into slice when cooled. Enjoy! Just make sure there are some left for the kid’s lunches.
