Making your own muesli bars means you can control the sweetness. We like ours packed with nutritious nuts, seeds and cranberries. With a touch of melted chocolate, of course!
125g Mornflake Organic Superfast Oats
160g dates, destoned
30g almonds, roughly chopped
30g walnuts, roughly chopped
2 tbsp sunflower seeds
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
50g peanut butter
50g dried cranberries
For decoration (optional)
4 chunks of dark chocolate, melted
Line a 22cm x 12cm loaf tin with baking paper.
Add the oats, almonds, walnuts, pumpkin and sunflower seeds to a large frying pan and toast them for 6-8 minutes, stirring regularly so they don’t catch and burn. Then remove from the heat.
Meanwhile in a small saucepan melt together the honey and peanut butter, stir until combined.
In a food processor add the dates and blend until they are broken down into small pieces. Add the toasted oats, nuts and seeds to the processor, pour over the melted honey and peanut butter then in scatter the dried cranberries. Pulse a few times to combine all the ingredients together.
Tip the mixture into the loaf tin and press down firmly. Smooth across the top and place in the fridge to set for a couple of hours.
Remove from the fridge and slice into 6 bars.
Melt some dark chocolate to drizzle over the top of the muesli bars.
Store in an airtight container and eat within 4 days.
