Ingredients

24 portion(s)

  • 100 g Butter, cut into cubes
  • 80 g honey
  • 90 g brown sugar
  • 80 g pitted dates
  • 200 g rolled oats
  • 20 g Poppyseeds
  • 30 g white chia seeds
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • pinch salt flakes
5

Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 140 degrees/Gas Mark 2.

  2. Place the butter, honey and brown sugar in the TM bowl and melt for 6 minutes/Varoma/speed 2 to form a light, sticky caramel. 

  3. Add the dates and chop for 4 seconds/speed 5. Add the rolled oats, poppyseeds, white chia seeds, cinnamon and salt flakes. Mix for 10 seconds/speed 3.

  4. Line a baking tray of about 20cm x 25cm with baking paper, and press in the mixture. It’s sticky so I use another sheet of baking paper on top to smooth it out.

  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. The slice will be soft when you remove it from the oven but will set as it cools. Slice into squares and store in an airtight container.

Tip

There’s lots to like about these snack bars. They’re easy, adaptable (use other seeds or fruit) and free from nuts, making them lunch-box friendly. They’re extra delicious because the sugar, honey and butter are slightly caramelised.

Don’t save this one for the kids!

    Delicious snack!

    I adjusted the recipe like most people removing the sugar. I also changed the butter to coconut oil and changed the honey to maple syrup on one occasion and agave on another; both delicious.

    I also added a handful of dried cranberries. Yum!

    Delicious and healthy, thanks for this recipe! After reading the other comments, I omitted the sugar, swapped golden syrup (40g) for honey, also added sesame and chia seeds instead of the poppy, a hit with everyone and definitely didn't need the sugar.

    Made these yesterday, omitted the sugar completely and added 40g honey.  Used 20g of sesame seeds and 30g black chia.   Turned out well, although a little crumbly (although I am guessing this is why you would need all the honey to bind).   Nice flavour!   Have yet to test on the kids!

    Far too sweet - even with half the sugar!

    Planning on trying these again, but omitting the sugar entirely and halving the honey. The combination of dates, sugar and honey is simply too much.

    Submitted by Margarita Helen on 5. February 2015 - 14:43.

    My guest has dairy allergies, so I subbed the butter with red apple and 3 tablespoons of olive oil. I also reduced the sugar by half and used golden syrup because I didn't have honey. I replaced the dates with sultanas. This was super yummy but I will definitely drop the sugar altogether if I decide to use apple and sultanas again. Was really nice.

    These are great! I reduced the sugar, butter and honey amounts and they still were fine. Might omit the sugar altogether next time after reading previous comments.

    I also added sultanas, cranberries and shredded coconut instead of all dates.

    Great basic recipe that is easy to just use what is in the cupboard. I use 50g coconut oil in place of butter, 45g  coconut suger instead of brown. Next time I will use less honey as it still came out very sweet. I used dried cherries, sultana's and apricots, sunflower kernels and some shredded coconut. This recipe will now be my basic museli bar with using whatever is in the cupboard. Thanks heaps !

    Yum! Had to stop myself from eating the uncooked mix. I put slightly less honey and brown sugar as per the comments above. Instead of dates I used cranberries, apricots, almonds and shredded coconut. Great sort of healthy snack and I am not a fan of shop bought muesli bars. Thanks for the recipe, these are a keeper.

    I love these. I've adapted the recipe over time but it was this recipe that got me started and is the first one my kids have eaten! Thank you. I sub half the oats for puffed rice, I also use coconut oil instead of butter and coconut sugar instead of brown sugar. I halve both the sweeteners and I nearly always do a double batch. I also change up the nuts/dried fruit and also sprinkle cacao nibs on top before baking...

    Made these on day two of owning our Thermomix. As per other comments these are extremely easy to make. They taste absolutely delicious. All four of my children love them. We reduces the amount of brown sugar down to 50g and most probably could completely remove it and add more honey instead. We also added mixed dried friut instead of the dates.

    I made these today using the binding ingredients, butter, honey, sugar as per instructions. I then added basically all the left over dried fruits that I had left In the pantry.  Apricots, sultanas, goji berries, dates (About 50g of each), 200g of the rolled oats and without measuring almonds, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds, coconut, cinnamon. Cooked in oven for 5 min longer. When it comes out of the oven, it is soft to touch. Left it in the pan to cool and stuck it in the refrigerator for a few hours before cutting. These are beautiful & crunchy & hold together without falling apart. Kids loved them & so did I.
