Easy 7-Ingredient Muesli Bars

These easy 7-ingredient muesli bars make a great pick-me-up snack. Personally, I especially love the cacao nibs in these muesli bars as they add a lovely crunch to the muesli bar and have a nice chocolate-y flavour after baking.

To ensure that the muesli bars hold together and don’t crumble apart too much, I have used rice malt syrup. You could substitute this with another sticky sugary product such as golden syrup or date syrup. However, do not substitute the rice malt syrup with maple syrup as maple syrup is too liquid and not sticky enough.

These muesli bars are perfect for anyone who likes to prepare snacks for the week ahead. Whether you like a snack between study sessions, at work or on a hike – these bars won’t disappoint. Once the muesli bars are baked and cooled down, they can be stored in a sealed container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
