Those muesli bars, a mixture of seeds, oats, dried fruit and honey along with some brown sugar, so simple to prepare and perfect for those who enjoy the natural goodness of seeds, cereals and fruit. They are a healthy and high protein snack you can add to the daily lunch box.
Recipe adapted from Taste.

  • 90 g Rolled oats
  • 60 g Desiccated coconut
  • 50 g Wheatgerm
  • 30 g Sesame seeds
  • 50 g Sunflower kernels
  • 50 g Pumpkin seeds
  • 80 g Sultanas
  • 125 g Butter
  • 150 g Honey
  • 50 g Brown sugar
  1. Grease and line a 3cm deep, 16cm x 28cm baking pan with baking paper. Cook oats, coconut, wheatgerm, 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.
  2. 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.

Hi, Angie,
thanks for sharing this healthy snack.. will definitely make some to put in my daughter lunch box... eh.. what is wheatgerm in German? and is this bar crunchy type? thanks..

Belinda @zomppa 4/9/11 13:57

So healthy and naturally sweet - better than anything store-bought!

Angie's Recipes 4/9/11 13:58

It's called "Weizenkeim" and I got them in Edeka.
And those bars are not crunchy, but chewy.

Foodycat 4/9/11 14:12

These sound lovely! I must try them!

Shannon@JustAsDelish 4/9/11 15:07

i love these healthy bars,but have not made them. have seen many recipes variations, most of them are crunchy. What's the difference between muesli and granola bars?

girlichef 4/9/11 15:15

I KNOW I would love these bars...everything in them is delicious.

I love the ingredients, they just scream healthy and chunky, too many "bars" like these have too much sugar in them killing all of the other flavors :(
Thanks for sharing...

I'm wondering if the rolled spelt would work here?

Xiaolu 7/9/11 18:07

OysterCulture 18/9/11 06:10

Wow, these look like some fantastic health food bars. They make what I eat look like cardboard - I am moving up!

BumbleVee 22/9/11 19:14

how 'bout that?? a second bar recipe ....yum..... thanks for this one too..


Shannon @ JustAsDelish 11/2/12 18:03

I made these bars, they are the tastiest (is there such a word??) chewy bar I've eaten! but the ingredients couldn't stay firm together. they become firm after I freeze them, but 30minutes in the hot malaysian weather, they just become soft and fall apart loosely. so I keep them in the freezer! haha. Maybe I didn't cook the liquids long enough for it to harden?

Angie's Recipes 12/2/12 07:04

@Shannon @ JustAsDelish Could be. I think mine was even slightly overcooked, so it's a bit too hard.

Maria Teresa Aleman 18/10/12 15:56

Hi Angie!! Wonderful, delicious!!!

Ogniwa słoneczne 31/12/14 19:26

These look amazing, Angie. I've never used dessicated coconut before. I'm off to google now. Very good post , and important neuws thanks for you
