These Blueberry and Coconut Muesli Bars are the perfect addition to my lunchbox repertoire. They are enough to give you that afternoon sweet boost, without overdosing on sugar. One small bar is enough to fill you up and get you through your afternoon slump (with a nice cup of tea, naturally). Even better, they've received the approval of everyone in my house, this afternoon! They were a sinch to make - all mixed together in a matter of minutes - and you can easily substitute in other dried fruits or flavours.
Blueberry and Coconut Muesli Bars
4 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup plain flour, sifted
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup brown sugar
140g dried blueberries
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup honey
2 tbsp golden syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius and line a large slice tray (mine was 30cm x 30cm).
Add all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir. Separately, combine all wet ingredients. Incorporate combined wet ingredients with dry ingredients and mix well. Put mixture into your slice tin and press down evenly. Place into your oven for 50 minutes or until golden brown and crisping at the edges. Allow to cool completely in tin before removing and slicing into bars. Makes around 30 small bars.
I think it's time to pop the kettle on,
