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.

You should also try my BANANA WALNUT BREAD and STRAWBERRY COCONUT 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.

For more healthy snack bars thatdon’t even need cooking, make sure you also try these PEANUT BUTTER ENERGY BARS and these CHOCOLATE ENERGY BARS.

Use any dried fruit you like. Dried apricots or Goji berries work well, and I like to use dried mango sometimes too.
I like to add some chopped cashews & walnuts to my muesli bars, but leave them out if you need a nut-free recipe.
