Home made muesli bars! 😍 it’s our Snack Challenge week over in the Healthy & Happy Mums With Bubs Fitness Group (if you’re not a member, head to FB & join for free!) and we’ve got lots of recipes flowing that keep us Mama’s - & our kids- well nourished 🙌
These bad boys pack a nutritional punch, and require no baking!! I tend to change up my recipe based on what dried fruits/nuts/seeds I have in the house, but the base recipe is always as follows:
Dry ingredients: 1.5 cups rolled oats, 1/2 Cup mixed seeds (usually I use pepita, sunflower or flax), 1/2 Cup mixed nuts (gently crushed, I use almonds or cashews), 1/2 Cup mixed drier fruits (sultanas or chopped dates work well). Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl.
Wet ingredients: 1/2 Cup peanut butter, 3/4 Cup melted coconut oil. 1 tbsp honey.
Put wet ingredients into a sauce pan over low heat, allow to just melt, stirring consistently.
Add dry ingredients and stir until fully coated.
Remove and place into low baking pan lined with baking paper. Press down evenly.
Place into freezer, let it sit as long as you can, then slice and put back into freezer as an easy snack!
This isn’t ok for school lunches due to the nuts, but is great for a mid morning or post session pick me up to always have on hand in the freezer 👌
My family approves!
