Muesli Slice

There’s no denying there are lots of muesli bar recipes out there, and while I’m not reinventing the wheel here, I have managed to create my own recipe that my kids (and hubby!) adore.

Brenda Janschek - Muesli Slice Feature

Because they are quick, nutritious and delicious, they make a fantastic lunchbox snack. You can always dial up the nutrition factor by utilising the beneficial fats contained in butter, controlled amounts of natural sugar, and the vitamins, minerals in the seeds

These are not like your average crunchy Muesli bar. Rather, they’re a softer, crumblier (but not too crumbly) version and make a great option to keep your kids happy, full and focused at school.

Because most schools have a nut-free policy, I have omitted nuts in favour of seeds for this recipe. Maybe you could add some almonds to a batch for home use!

Yum, yum! These are even approved by my son who really is the best eater when it comes to savoury, but quite fussy with his healthy treats.

Enjoy!
