    Default Museli bar recipes (nut free please!)

    Yay! I'm only working 3 days this year so I can make a bit more of what goes in to my DD's and my own lunchboxes. So I was all excited by the latest Super food ideas mag with its lunchbox special, but sadly most of the museli bar recipes in it used some form of nut butter to bind them together. No good for school!

    So throw me your favourite museli bar recipes - or slices that cut and keep well like museli bars. Happy with bake and no-bake!

    Subbing! I made some yesterday and they didn't bind together, they ended up more like granola than muesli bars.

    My DD is also nut free. It seems melted butter, sugar and honey isn't enough to bind them. They were the wet ingredients in the ones I made

    I think honey and coconut oil are good binders. The oil will harden up when the tin goes in the fridge, but I think you may to put a freezer block or cool pack in with the lunch box on hot days or it could solidify

    These aren't quite muesli bars, but I make 'banana bars' about the size & shape of baby rusks.
    Approximately 3 tablespoons of oats to every 1/2 a mashed banana. Alter as needed to get a consistency that you can shape. Shape & bake at 180 for about 12 minutes.
    You can add pretty much anything (sultanas, coconut, chocolate chips, coconut oil, raspberries etc). My kids love them.

    I made these recently. They are quite yummy, however I found them a bit too sweet. Next time I make them I will be reducing the amount of sugar:

    I use a recipe I found on YouTube. 3 cups of uncooked oats and one can of sweetened condensed milk. Bake on 180 till golden brown. The guy used a round cake tin in the video but I use a slice tray lined with baking paper. For chewy leave in an airtight container in your cupboard or put them in the fridge for firm. You can add dried fruits, baking choc chips etc. I just make the 3rd cup of oats a bit less depending on what I'm putting in extra.
