It’s no secret that store-bought muesli bars are packed full of gluten, sugar, preservatives and many ingredients you can’t pronounce. Schools these days are also largely nut free zones, making healthy lunch box choices quite the challenge. I have the solution. These Nut Free No-Muesli Bars are nutrient dense, all natural and super easy to make. They also double as training snacks and a great substitute to expensive and artificial sports bars. Dive in and give them a whirl.
Ingredients (Makes 8+ bars)
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 cup pumpkin seeds
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 cup coconut flakes
- ¼ cup dried sour cherries
- ¼ cup coconut oil – I use Coconut Revolution
- ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon Pure Harvest rice malt syrup
- ¼ cup tahini
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Combine seeds, coconut flakes and cherries together in a large bowl.
- Add melted coconut oil and ¼ cup rice malt syrup and mix well.
- In a small sauce pan, heat tahini, remaining rice malt syrup and salt until well combined. Add to above mixture and combine thoroughly.
- Transfer into a lined rectangular bread tin and compact well using the palm of your hand. The more force you apply here, the better.
- Place in the fridge to set, before slicing into individual bars. These will keep in the fridge longer than your portion control allows. Enjoy.
I’d love to hear what you think, can you pop back and leave your feedback once you’ve given them a try?
