I wanted to share this super yummy, super easy, recipe for homemade muesli bars. They are fruit free, nut free but packed with yummy seeds. My 5 year old has been having them every day at school this term and LOVES them.
As declared in my Peppa Pig birthday cake post I am a terrible baker … so if I can make these anyone can!
Thank you to Donna Hay for this recipe that has acted as the base for our version. One day my kids might eat these with dried fruit …
Super yummy, fruit free, nut free muesli bars … with seeds
- 125g butter
- ¼ cup (90g) golden syrup
- 1 cup (90g) rolled oats
- 1 cup of mixed seeds (I use pumpkin, sunflower and chia in my mix)
- ½ cup (75g) self-raising (self-rising) flour
- ½ cup (90g) brown sugar
and then simply:
- Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
- Place the butter and golden syrup in a small saucepan over low heat and cook, stirring, until the butter is melted.
- Place the oats, seeds, flour and sugar in a bowl and mix to combine.
- note: I whizz my cup of seeds up in my Nutribullet and turn them into a powder/flour because Miss 5 would not eat them if they looked like seeds. However, my sister makes this using whole seeds and her kids love it. Take whichever option works for you.
- Add the butter mixture and mix to combine. Press into the base of a lightly greased 20cm x 30cm tin lined with non-stick baking paper.
- Bake for 20–25 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool completely in the tin before cutting into slices to serve.
- store in an airtight container
Makes enough in our house to last a week, including a few sneaky bits for me!
