Museli bars are great for a number of reasons. They’re the perfect snack you don’t have to think about, they’re pretty good at dealing with a rumbling tummy in the middle of the day, and are great for kids’ lunch boxes. However there are a few problems too. More often than not the ones you’ll find in the supermarket are packed with sugar, often with barely any actual fruit lying within, and they can be pretty expensive for the six relatively small bars you get.
With the new year upon us we thought we’d start by looking at ways we can save money while still eating healthily and not missing out on yummy snacks. Muesli bars are one of those things that are easy to chuck in the trolley without thinking about. But it’s often the many little things that make for a lengthy receipt at the checkout, so by starting small and making your own little snacks at home, you can help keep the budget at bay. So here’s our recipe for some yummy muesli bars that will keep you and yours going.
- 2 bananas, mashed
- ½ cup of Davidson’s Organic Raw & Unheated Honey
- 2/3 cups of chocolate chips
- 2½ cups of rolled oats
- ½ cup of crunchy cereal, whatever you prefer
I managed to make about 20 bars by cutting the block in half and slicing relatively thinly.
