Muesli Bars (Nut Free)

MuesliBarsI have to hide these in the back of the freezer to stop my kids (and husband) eating them all at once. I think that is a good indicator of how yummy they are.
This was a recipe that my demonstrator gave me when I purchased my Thermomix, I have adapted it slightly from the original and made it many many times since.
It is nut free, so suitable for school lunchboxes, and freezes really well.
To prevent the bars being crumbly once cooked, use a very generous tablespoon of honey, and press the mixture down very firmly into the tin (I use the back of my MC to do this).
I cut the slice into bars, but you can also cut into squares for smaller portions.
This is definitely one to try for yourself – they taste so much better than anything you can buy from the shops.

    Mmmm these look delicious. I made a similar no bake version which was a big hit in our house, but I loved the way you have pimped these up with fruit and seeds for a bit of value added goodness. Best of all, I love that I can make them in my Thermomix and they can be frozen too! Winning@

    Yum! I’m always trying out different muesli bar recipes and this one sounds divine (and I’m loving that you’ve already converted it to the TM). Best of all.. I have all these ingredients in the cupboard right now! Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Foodie Fridays – have a great weekend. xx
