I don’t think there is any other snack more included in the lunch box every single day than the muesli bar. I remember the humble muesli bar being the highlight of my morning tea at school and have adored them ever since. I absolutely love the sticky gooeyness that holds together an array of gorgeously chewy oats, sweet dried fruit and crunchy roasted nuts. And the hit of energy they provide is fantastic for the kids (big and small).
Buying muesli bars from the store if perfectly okay but there is something so much more special and not to mention delicious about whipping up your own batch! Not only do you get complete control over what goes into the bars but they are a breeze to prepare and once you realise how easy they are to make you’ll never buy store bought bars again.
In today’s bars, I decided to celebrate the cool weather and opted for ingredients that echoed the winter season; dates, sultanas, pumpkin seeds and pistachios.
