Molly and I made these delicious muesli bars this morning. The recipe made 18 bars and I already had most of the ingredients in the cupboard. Recipe adapted from taste.com.au..
Home Made Muesli Bars
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- 1/2 cup oat bran
- 1/2 cup sesame seeds
- 1/2 cup sunflower kernels (didn't have any so omitted these)
- 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
- 1 cup sultanas
- 100g butter
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/3 cup brown sugar (you could use less as they are pretty sweet)
Grease and line a 3cm deep, 16cm x 28cm (base) baking pan with baking paper. Cook (using no oil) oats, coconut, oat bran, sesame seeds, sunflower kernels and pumpkin seeds in a frying pan over medium heat, stirring, for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a bowl. Set aside to cool. Stir in sultanas.
Cook butter, honey and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, without stirring, for 7 minutes or until mixture forms a soft ball when a little is dropped into ice-cold water. Add to dry ingredients. Stir until combined.
Spoon mixture into pan. Use a large metal spoon to press down firmly. Allow to cool. Cut into squares. Store in a foil-lined airtight container for up to 7 days
