I've just made these for the mob and they are very popular. Thanks Leonie.
Great to hear Jean - thank you! :)
really enjoyed these - lovely recipe, very handy for school lunches especially as it's nut-free. thanks!
My pleasure Trish and nut free can make it difficult to do a nice muesli bar :D
So easy and yum! I also swapped in the chia seeds and apricot for pepitas and canberry!
Oh that sounds great Debc - Will have to add that to my list of must tries :D
Finally got around to commenting here! This has become my 'go to' slice. As a breastfeeding mumma I was looking for something healthier than chocolate to snack on, as I'm always so hungry these days. Made these into lactation muesli bars by adding a tablespoon of Brewers' yeast (strong flavour so don't use unless you can stomach it!) and replaced the sesame seeds with linseeds (flax seeds). Combined with the oats, they make great galactagogues!
Thanks Tracy - great to hear of your changes. Enjoy your baby! :)
Love this recipe... I have just made it with nuttalex.. So dairy free! Also chia seeds instead of sesame seeds as I had run out. Can you freeze this?? I want to use is for school lunches. Thanks , Jodie
Yes I'm sure it would freeze well Jodie. :)
Thanks! It is cooling now! I have also used dried stevia from my garden, instead of sugar, so I am interested to see how it tastes!
Most interested in the dried Stevia, Can you tell us about it please?

actually that's Crio Bru, not Crui Bru!

I made these a while ago exactly to the recipe and they were well received by all. I made them on the weekend again and I inadvertently changed a few things:
I didn't have quite enough honey, about 30g so added the last 10g as molasses.
I used about 40g of rapadura sugar as I'd run out of brown sugar
Didn't have any pepitas left, so thought I'd add raw cacao nibs with some sunflower seeds, but added about 20g of Crui Bru in the TM before I realized what it was! I then added the cacao nibs!
I added 1tbls of sesame seeds and 1tbls of linseeds - this was meant to be the only change!
However, they are delicious and I'm glad I wrote down what I changed otherwise I wouldn't remember what I'd done!
Tastes great! I put some choc drops on top for the kids
Great idea with the choc drops Christine! :)
Have made a million muesli bar slices in the quest for one that sticks together and acts like a muesli bar - this one does Hooray!! Yum and a great base for swapping in other ingredients, thanks Thermofun.
hey that's great to hear Jenene! Let me know what ingredients swap you end up doing too and how it goes! :)
Just made this now. Replaced sesame seeds with chai seeds. Eating it still hot from the oven. It's yum! Will be great for the kids lunches.
Oh still hot from the oven! nom nom nom!!! :)
