    Submitted by stinimende on 1. November 2018 - 17:17.

    I swapped the fruit for Choc Chips and baked these in my silicone bar moulds for 15 minutes as suggested in other comments at 190°c because I wanted a crunchy muesli bar.
    They're nice, but still softer than I anticipated.

    Submitted by Tissie on 24. March 2018 - 12:34.

    I havent made these for ages, but decided today it was about time. I have saved the recipe but did a check anyway, and it has changed a bit. I include pistachios (as per original), never included the sugar (which is not there now) sub rice malt syrup for honey. I notice cinnamon is now included, pity I made them before I noticed and I should have thought of that myself, will also include a tsp of vanilla extract next time as well. Oh an original recipe was just 160g of dried fruit of choice, I generally get a mix from Coles pick and pack section, called Berry Mix I think.
    I also cook it for about 15 mins at 160c for that extra crunch, and I do like the brownish top. Inside is still nice and chewy.
    Most definitely cool totally before slicing. I keep in the freezer as they don't take long to defrost and (hopefully) stops me eating all at once
    Best recipe I have seen for Muesli Bars, winner all round for taste, texture and versatility of ingredients

  • Ive made a few different but similar muesli bars...

    Submitted by DesireeH on 10. July 2017 - 11:40.

    Ive made a few different but similar muesli bars from the community recipes, and this one is by far the yummiest.
    I did however change a few things, such as I used Golden flaxmeal instead of wheat germ, and i used 100g of Light Agave instead of honey, and 100g of coconut oil. I found this to be ample wet ingredients, and with my next batch I may reduce the Agave down to 80g and 90g of coconut oil as with all the minced dried fruit in it its quite sticky enough and will press and hold shape quite easily as it is. You just may need to slighty reduce the cooking time of the liquids if using less than the recipe states.
    With the dried fruit I used approx 70g apricots, 20 saltana's and 10g of goji berries which gave a lovely splash of red colour here and there in the bars.
    4 kids went off to school today with them in the lunches, be interesting to see if their lunch boxes come back empty. However I'd be very surprised if they do.
    Thank you for this recipe.

    I have made a couple of tweaks to the recipe, based on my own use and comments of others.

    I've omitted the sugar from the ingredients list, and added some dates to lend some natural sweetness. I've also added a little cinnamon.  tmrc_emoticons.)

    I make these often, using coconut oil, malt rice syrup, LSA instead of wheat germ and whatever dried fruit I have in the house. I will also often add granulated nuts etc...whatever you like can be added really! Hubby also loves when I add choc chips as they melt and make choc musli bars tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by sdmcleod on 3. August 2015 - 07:41.

    Love these!

    Every week I make these and vary the fruit in them, sometimes even vary the seeds in them, as I don't often buy pepitas.  I use less sugar than recommended and drizzle with white Choc for the kids.  So much better than commercial muesli bars.   Love the little pop of chia seeds too!  

    Thanks for this recipe!

  • Delicious & healthy! Perfect

    Submitted by saxonwoman on 3. May 2015 - 18:33.

    Delicious & healthy! Perfect for kids packed lunches. I love that it doesn't need to be baked. I too omitted the sugar - to make it refined sugar-free - was plenty sweet enough with the honey. I also substituted the wheatgerm for psyllium husks to make it gluten-free. One tip if using bigger pricers of dried fruit is to give them a quick chop in the thermie once you set aside the other dry ingredients - I did this with dates, apricots & goji berries. Thanks for sharing great recipe  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by healthy_bree on 18. December 2014 - 13:23.

    These muesli bars are the BEST .  I substituted the butter with coconut oil, brown sugar with coconut sugar and honey with ricemalt syrup (they now become vegan)I didnt have wheat germ so just used ground flax seeds. I also used some vegan choc chips in place of some sultanas but they were accidently choc 'melts' so when I mixed it through it melted through the whole mix and made chocolate muesli bars. I'm not complaining cos they are delicious. Will def make again and try some different combos with nuts.

    Delicious and really easy! Thank you for posting.

    I don't like apricots so used 80g chopped dates and 80 cacao nibs - also replaced the wheat germ with almond meal for a wheat free option. Definitely could reduce the sugar. I'm also wondering if you could replace the butter with coconut oil to make them dairy free?
