My obsession for a crispy, chewy, fruity snack started a week ago when I was stuck out-and-about without my bag of emergency food. Harry was giving me the warning cough-turn-squeal and getting all snakey in the pram, so I legged it to Woolies and bought him these 12month+ muesli bar thingies. Of course they were delicious and he was munching away very happily, but they were also so ridiculously overpriced and full of who-knows-what. You know what i’m like.

These are so fab, If you try them please let me know how they turn out.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup butter
  • 4 tbs honey
  • 3 tbs apple juice (ora apple sauce)
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1/3 cup Rice Bubbles (Rice Krispies)
  • 3 tbs desiccated coconut
  • ¼ cup raisins (or a dried fruit mix i.e. cranberry/apricot/raisins)
  • ¼ cup pepitas or sunflower seeds (optional)
  • ¼ tsp salt

Method

Step 1

Pre-heat oven to 170°C and line a 20cm x 20cm tin with baking paper. -

Step 2

In a medium saucepan melt butter and honey over a low heat. Once melted set aside to cool. -

Step 3

Put the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and mix together. Add the cooled honey mixture and stir to combine. -

Step 4

Transfer the mixture into the pre-prepared tin and press down firmly with the back of a spoon. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the centre is just firm. -

Step 5

Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 15 minutes. Mark the bars with a sharp knife but don't cut completely (or they will fall apart). Once completely cool you can remove from the tin and slice. Store in an airtight container. -

    I made these on the weekend but mine fell apart even with extra cooking and not touching them until fully cooled. I probably added a bit more fruit than the recipe says but didn’t think that would stop them from working. Any suggestions because they are sooooo yummy! ps. The mixture didn’t go to waste, I’ve served it with honey and fruit for breakfast :)

    Could you use rice flakes instead of rice bubbles?
