Delicious, chewy healthy muesli bars
These healthy muesli bars are made with just a few simple ingredients and they?don’t contain any refined sugars, flours or unnecessary extra ingredients.
I’ve always loved muesli bars as a snack and I used to buy packets of them from the supermarket. Well it’s convenient, right?
That was in the days before my nutrition training, and before I learned that just because a food is labelled healthy, doesn’t mean that it actually is!?
Then I started checking ingredient labels, and that inspired me to start making my own versions of store bought snacks, like muesli bars, banana bread and muffins.

Make your own muesli bars and be in control
Treats are an important part of a healthy diet, especially when they’re made with wholesome, real ingredients.
Making your own puts you?in control, and that’s the big difference when it comes to eating food that’s nutritious vs. food that’s “so-so.”
Oats, nuts and seeds are the main ingredients in these muesli bars. Just add your favourite dried fruit and/or nuts. Then the honey, tahini and coconut oil are melted together to bind the dry ingredients.
The nuts and dried fruit are optional. Leave them out if you need to for dietary or school lunchbox requirements.
Here’s the muesli bar recipe
Healthy muesli bars
- 3 cups rolled oats
- ¼ cup sesame seeds
- ¼ cup sunflower seeds
