Nut Free Muesli Bars
by Collette White | 6 December, 2018
Good Morning friends, Happy Thursday! I hope this finds you all well! I know school is only weeks away from finishing but I needed to share with you all my homemade nut free muesli bar recipe. It is perfect for the lunchbox (for kids and adults), for road trips and picnics. It is a truly versatile recipe, you can swap and change things around depending on your taste buds and dietary needs (see notes below). I love that Mabel (my Richmond Belling Oven, yes I named her!) has a ‘wok’ burner (as my old oven didn’t) as it makes such a difference when I am cooking stir-frys or using a Wok in recipes like this. I would love to hear from you when you make this!
1 cup oats
½ cup pepitas
½ cup sunflower seeds
¼ cup sesame seeds
¼ cup goji berries
¼ cup sultanas
¼ cup honey
Line a 20cm square cake tin and set aside.
Into a large wok place the oats, pepitas, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds. Stir-fry over a medium-high heat for 5-8 minutes until golden and toasted. Remove from heat.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Pour mixture into the prepared cake tin and push down firmly. I found it a little sticky to push down, so on top of the mixture I placed another piece of baking paper and pushed down using that as a barrier to stop it sticking to my fingers or the spoon.
Refrigerate for 2 hours before cutting into muesli bar size slices or smaller squares depending on what you prefer.
Store in an airtight container.
- Using these measurements you can swap the ingredients for other ingredients of your choice. Eg other seeds or nuts etc depending on your personal taste, allergies and school requirements etc
- I have done this first step on a flat tray in the oven also, but to get an even toasting I had to turn it all a few times and found I made a mess! If you don’t wish to use the wok step, you can always use the oven or you can leave this step out completely if you don’t want the ingredients toasted. My family much prefer the taste of the ingredients toasted
- You can swap the honey for rice malt syrup if you prefer
Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
