Muesli Bars row


Making muesli bars is something that never gets old for me. It’s always a novelty to be able to make something that can be store bought, it’s just that we forget how easy it can be. This particular recipe for muesli bars was shared with me many years ago by an old colleague. It is a go-to and I have been making it ever since. They are so easy to make (almost a one bowl recipe), quick to whip up and completely moreish. I make them in batches for a sneaky breakfast on the run, work snacks and treats throughout the day.

The best thing about the muesli bars is that you can change the ingredients around to create your ideal bar. For example, in this image, I’ve gone with sesame seeds, shredded coconut, almond flakes, sunflower seeds, millet, wheatgerm and psyllium seed husks.

Enjoy this recipe and let me know what combinations you use!

Muesli Bars

Makes 12 – 16.


3 1/2 cups of Rolled Oats

½ cup of Shredded Coconut

¼ cup of Sesame Seeds

¼ cup of Sunflower Seeds

¾ cup of Honey

¼ cup of Chia Seeds

¼ cup of mixed nuts (smaller varieties like Almonds, Hazelnuts and Walnuts)

1/4 cup of Soft Brown Sugar or Coconut Sugar

½ cup of vegetable oil



Preheat the oven to 130 degrees and lightly grease and line a 35 x 25 cm tin.


Place the oats, coconut,  mixed nuts, sunflower seeds, chia seeds and sesame seeds in a bowl.


Put the honey, sugar and oil in a small saucepan and stir over medium heat until the sugar dissolves.


Pour this over the mixture in the bowl and stir until well combined.


Pour the mixture into the tin and press mixture down until surface is even.


Bake for 50 minutes or until brown. Cut into bars whilst still warm.


Notes: There are many variations to this recipe, you can add fruit (dried cranberries, figs or apricots work well), wheatgerm, psyllium husks, puffed rice, rice bubbles, corn flakes – you name it. Tailor the Muesli Bars to your taste and liking!

Tip: Once the bars have dried after cutting you will notice some excess oats that have crumbled in the process.  Don’t throw them away, store them in a jar to use as granola!
