Delicious, healthy muesli bars

These healthy muesli bars are made with just a few simple ingredients and they don’t contain any refined sugar or additives.

I’ve always loved muesli bars as a snack and I used to buy 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 it actually is!

I decided a few years ago to start making my own versions of store bought snacks. And I also make healthier versions of traditional recipes for snacks and desserts.

I believe that treats are an important part of a healthy diet, as long as 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 nutritious food.

Oats, nuts and seeds are the main ingredients in these muesli bars. Just add your favourite dried fruit. Then honey, tahini and coconut oil are melted together to bind the dry ingredients.
