Ingredients

16 portion(s)

Wheat, nut & dairy-free muesli slice/ bars
  • 65 g brown rice
  • 1 tbsp golden flaxseeds (linseeds)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • half Pink lady apple (or any sweet apple), - optional
  • 200 g your choice of dried fruit (e.g. dates, apricots, cranberries, sultanas, goji berries etc.)
  • 90 g whole oats
  • 70 g rice bubbles (preferably brown)
  • 25 g coconut, dessicated
  • 70 g Raw caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp pepitas or sunflower seeds
  • 50 g coconut or avocado oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 50 g Raw Honey
  • 100 g white chocolate, melted (optional)

Recipe's preparation

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C. Line the base and sides of a 3cm deep, 20 x 30cm rectangular pan with baking paper, allowing a 2cm overhang.

  2. Add the flaxseeds, chia seeds and brown rice to the TM bowl and grind for 20 seconds on speed 9. Decant into a bowl and set aside.

  3. Place the apple half in the TM bowl and grate for a few seconds on speed 5 - for a crunchier bar omit the apple. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add all the dried fruit. Turn to the lid closed position Closed lid and pulse on Turbo about 3 times until the dried fruit is evenly chopped. 

  4. Return the grounds seeds and rice to the TM bowl together with all of the remaining ingredients. Combine on reverse Counter-clockwise operation for 20-30 seconds on speed 3 until well combined. Check that the dry ingredients are completely coated in the wet.

  5. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan using the spatula. Use the back of a metal spoon or the bottom of a heavy glass to press the mixture evenly into the pan and smooth the surface.

  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly browned. Allow to cool for about 20 minutes in the pan before lifting onto a cooking rack to cool completely before cutting. Cut the muesli slice into 16 bars and drizzle with melted white chocolate (optional).

Tip

This muesli slice is ideal for your chidren's lunchbox. It is very nutritious and largely allergen-free. For a bit of fun get the kids involved in drizzling a little melted chocolate over the bars. Wrap in a length of wax paper by folding in at the sides and rolling the bar in the paper, securing with a fun sticker!

VARIATIONS

This recipe is not over-sweet, so it is a good idea to include dates as part of the dried fruit mix for the extra sweetness.

Try different combinations of cereal in place of the brown rice bubbles, e.g. bran sticks, flake cereals (just make sure they are nut-free).

Add 50g white, milk or dark choc chips at step 4.

  • Love those. One of my most
    Submitted by LisaToo on 1. May 2016 - 22:01.

    Love those. One of my most often made recipes! I'm not a huge fan of coconut or raisins in muesli bars, so leave those out and use apricots, cranberries and dates as fruit, which makes it so sweet that no sugar is needed at all. I also don't bother with the white chocolate. I do use rice crispies, because when I used unsweetened brown rice puffs they turned into rock hard little lumps... so there is still sugar in this (plus the honey and the tons of fruit sugar), but that has still got to be a thousand times healthier (and yummier!) than store bought muesli bars!

    Submitted by Perth Gem on 17. January 2016 - 18:45.

    I left out the sugar completely and dropped the honey by 10 and it was still delicious.  Just the right amount of crunch. This will be a regular for school lunchboxes. Thanks for sharing!

    going to do apricot and choc chip this time.

    i left out the sugar and just put 10g honey, and a whole apple.

    might try the half apple and 10g more honey this time. Was still quite moist after baking.

    Since I discovered this recipe a couple of months ago I've been making it twice a week. So very yummy and nutritious! Hubby and I do lots of endurance sports and we've found that this is a perfect breakfast/snack before and/or after the workout. Great recipe that's easy to chop and change as needed.

    This is a winner with my 3 and 1 year olds, I added a little less sugar and used half a granny smith apple as that is the only type I had at the time. Forgot to add the eggs realised after I took it out of the oven. I let it cool and mixed the eggs in and rebaked, still was quite moist.

  • Hi there. Yes unfortunately
    Submitted by PaulaM on 2. October 2013 - 12:46.

    Hi there. Yes unfortunately it's all to do with the volume to mass (g) ratio of the cereal you use in place of the ingredients in my recipe. I have found that puffs like millet etc. are much lighter so you end up adding too much to the recipe if you are not careful. 90g of oats is equal to about 1 cup in volume, so a cup of quinoa flakes however much this weighs in grams should work for you. Sorry it didn't work for you tmrc_emoticons.(  Regards, Paula

    Hi, these are yummy, but they didn't stick together so i'll have to use it as a sort of muesli for breakfasts. I used quinoa flakes instead of oats. I also had to take the mixture out of the thermomix to combine as it was full to the brim after i added the rice bubbles!

    Hi all! This is Paula, I am the creator of this recipe tmrc_emoticons.) I am really happy that so many of you are enjoying our family muesli bar recipe. Like so many of you, I too make many variations of this recipe . . . using different dried fruits depending on our mood and activated buckwheat groats in place of the rice bubbles for a lovely, highly nutritious crunch tmrc_emoticons.)  These days I use 50g rapadura or coconut palm sugar and sometimes I use coconut nectar in place of the raw honey which is lower GI. We skip on the white chocolate, although it is pretty! If you would like to try my dark chocolate version you can find them on my blog http://mixingituphk.blogspot.hk/2012/11/dark-choc-ginger-muesli-bars.html

    I haven't read all the comments so this may have already been mentioned but if you are going wheat free to avoid gluten you would need to find an alternative to oats as they contain gluten.  Quinoa might be a good alternative.

I have made these twice in the last week using different combinations of fruit - the latest  have dried fig, dried cranberries, fruit medley and dried apricots. I don't use sugar but put 20 grams of  Natvia and less honey than in the original recipe and they are still sweet. May even try next batch without the Natvia. Thanks for such a great recipe.
