Muesli bars are a lunchbox staple for many, but so many of them are loaded with sugar, and not exactly that cheap either. Over the past few years I have tried so many different ways to make muesli bars that actually stick together, but have never found a method that works…until now!
I now make these Easy Homemade Muesli Bars weekly, and my kids absolutely love them. I freeze them in a large zip lock bag, and just grab them out as I pack lunch boxes in the morning, the are defrosted by break time. You could easily double this recipe and freeze a bigger batch if you prefer to make them less often. I generally get around 12 bars from one batch of muesli bars, cutting the slice in half length ways, then into six portions width ways.
This is one of those great recipes that can be tweaked to add anything you like. Just keep the oats, milk and egg quantities as they are, and add any dried fruit, nuts, chocolate or sugar alternatives that you like.
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup sultanas
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds (optional)
Line a slice tin with baking paper and set aside. Preheat the oven to 180c.
Add all ingredients to a large bowl and mix until well combined. Spoon into the prepared slice tin and press down firmly with the back of a spoon.
Bake for around 15 minutes or until just starting to colour. Allow to cool completely in tin before removing and slicing.
Store in the fridge or freezer.
