A new, even quicker and easier, muesli bar recipe

Thanks to one of the wonderful people from our wonderful twins group, I now have this recipe for some very easy, no bake muesli bar slice.  Let alone recipes, we also get loads of support from the group, as well as lots of twin friendly activities.  Our local AMBA (Australian Multiple Birth Association) group has certainly made our introduction to twin-life a whole lot easier!

This recipe is great for a few reasons - it's fairly healthy, and it's super quick to make... which is especially handy when you've got double the toddlers to chase around.

Here's the recipe:

1 packet of mixed nuts and dried fruit (500g-ish), blitzed in the blender until the pieces are small enough for little people
Stir in 3 tablespoons of honey, and 4 tablespoons of peanut butter.

Yep, that's it!  All you need to do now is either roll into balls, or press into a lined slice tin, and refrigerate. 

You could make the dry ingredients whatever you want - we swapped out some nuts for rolled oats and coconut.  You could even add chocolate chips if you like!  If the mixture is too crumbly, just add some more peanut butter or honey, or if it's too wet simply add some more dry ingredients.

Thanks to Marisa for the recipe!

  1. Is there something you could use other than peanut butter? Sounds easy and yummy.

  2. Hi Susan, you can use sunflower seed butter, or almond butter. You can find them in the health food section of the supermarket.
