We recently were given the green light to bring along food containing Peanut Butter to kindy and to say our little guys was excited is an understatement! These homemade Peanut Butter and Honey Muesli Bars are deliciously soft and chewy and can be adapted to suit your taste and preferences.
Both of our boys LOVE muesli bars and are also big fans of this Muesli Slice recipe. If they had their way, they could easily eat 2 -3 a day which not only is expensive but is also filling them with a lot of things they don’t really need. While these homemade Peanut Butter and Honey Muesli Bars are not overly ‘healthy’ at least I know what goes into them and it’s ways to amend the recipe if needed. If you want to cut down on the sweetness, you can substitute the honey for rice malt syrup. If sultanas are not your thing or you would prefer a bit more of a crunch, you can easily add your favourite nuts (we love walnuts) and other dried fruit to the mix.
This recipe makes approximately 10 muesli bars or you can turn it into a slice by cutting it into smaller pieces – you will get around 20. I find it’s a great treat for our little guy’s lunch box or to help satisfy his ridiculous appetite in the lead up to dinner.
