Home Made Museli Bars

Since my son started Kinder I have been looking for some healthy alternatives for his lunch box and of course they need to be nut free as well. I found supermarket muesli bars to be high in sugar and usually containing nuts so this way I can adjust to what I like.

125gm margarine
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp honey
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup dried dates, chopped
1/2 cup sultanas
1/4 cup Pepita's (pumpkin seeds)
2 tbsp sesame seeds

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius and grease and line a 28 x 18cm lamington tin
  • Stir margarine, honey and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
  • Stir in remaining ingredients
  • Press the mixture into the pan and smooth the surface. Bake for about 35 minutes or until golden brown
  • Cool in the pan and then cut into bars
Will keep for one week in an airtight container
