Muesli Bar

Muesli Bar
  • Prep: 10
  • Cook: 50 mins
  • Serves: 12

Ingredients

  • 2 tbs margarine
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup plain cereal eg. corn flakes, crushed Weetbix, rice bubbles, bran
  • 4 tbs mixed seeds eg. pumpkin, sunflower, sesame
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit eg. apple, apricot, cranberry, sultana, mango, fig, pineapple
  • 1 egg white

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C and line a small tray or loaf tin with baking paper.
  2. Put the margarine, sugar and honey in a small microwave safe bowl and heat for 10 seconds at a time till runny.
  3. Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl.
  4. Pour the mixture into the tray and press the mixture down as hard as you can with your hands or a large spoon. Rub a little oil on your hands/ spoon to stop the mixture sticking. Spend a few minutes doing this really well as it will help hold the muesli bar together.
  5. Bake for 40-50 mins till golden. As soon as you take the pan out of the oven press the mixture down with the spoon again.
  6. Use a large knife the chop into 12 pieces while still a little warm. The mixture will get harder as it cools.
