Gluten-free muesli bars – the per­fect healthy snack

We have made all our muesli bars us­ing puffed rice; you could use the same amount of por­ridge oats, or a com­bi­na­tion, if pre­ferred.

All our vari­a­tions are dairy-free, us­ing just honey, vanilla and salt as the bind­ing agent. For a more decadent op­tion, you could add the dry in­gre­di­ents to 125g but­ter, ⅓ cup brown sugar and 2 ta­ble­spoons honey.

If you like a lit­tle more crunch in your muesli bar, try in­creas­ing the cook­ing time by 5-10 min­utes. ➾

While it can be tempt­ing to dig in quickly, muesli bars need to com­pletely cool be­fore cut­ting. This en­sures that they are fully firm – and a lot more por­ta­ble! Store in an air­tight con­tainer in the pantry. ➾

Once you have mas­tered the base recipes, get a bit more ex­per­i­men­tal with the in­gre­di­ents. Al­monds, wal­nuts, hazel­nuts, dried cherry, dried pineap­ple, cur­rants and raisins are all de­li­cious, as is adding a dol­lop of smooth peanut but­ter to the bind­ing mix.
