Sesame and vanilla muesli biscuits

These dairy free sesame and vanilla muesli biscuits are just the thing you want for a nutritious pick-me-up. Perfect for the little ones (and adults too!) as they are full of goodness, and with just the right amount of sweetness. Pop some in the freezer for a snack on the go.

Nutrition Note: Muesli cookies and a satisfying snack for kids. The peanut butter, tahini and oil reduce the saturated content compared with many traditional recipes that use butter.

Note: if you wish to use your own muesli for the cookies simply replace the oats, coconut, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, pepitas and sultanas with 3 cups of muesli.

Storage: keep biscuits in airtight container for 5-7 days or in the freezer for up to 2-3 months. Uncooked cookie dough can be stored in the fridge for 3-5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

    Is there a possible substitute for peanut butter in this recipe?

      I’m interested in this as well, maybe replace it with more tahini? Although it may have a strong flavour 🤔

    Are these are hard or soft biscuit? I have a 6yo and 19mth old and I’m worried they will be too hard for the younger one to eat.
