MAKE AND TAKE
WHETHER YOU NEED LUNCHBOX FILLERS, BREAKFAST ON THE RUN, OR A MID-AFTERNOON PICK-ME-UP, THESE GLUTEN-FREE MUESLI BARS ARE THE PERFECT HEALTHY SNACKS FOR THOSE ON THE GO
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.
