    My kids prefer my home made muesli bars to the shop bought ones, but variety is still important. My son asked me if I could make Apple and Cinnamon Muesli Bars, instead of the usual ones that I make. I came up with this and both the kids loved the result. Though it could also be called a health snack as there isn't much that would offend your diet!

    Ingredients
    Makes: 14 Bars

    • 125g butter
    • 2/3 cup brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 1 cup apple sauce
    • 1/2 cup plain flour
    • 1 1/2 cups Rice Bubbles
    • 1 cup rolled oats
    • 1/2 coconut
    • 1 cup finely diced dried apple
    • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/2 cup All Bran (or Cornflakes)

    Directions
    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees C. Line a 25cm x 30cm swiss roll tin with baking paper.
    2. Combine butter, sugar and honey in a small saucepan on a low heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool.
    3. Place flour, Rice Bubbles, rolled oats, coconut, diced apple, cinnamon and All Bran in a bowl and mix well. Mix apple sauce into melted butter mixture, then add to dried ingredients. Mix well.
    4. Press mixture firmly into prepared tin.
    5. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown. Baking longer will result in a crunchy muesli bar, baking less will result in a chewy muesli bar.
    6. Cool in tin. Cut while still warm as crunchy bars will break up if cut cold.

    Tip

    You can make your own apple sauce by stewing diced apple (no water or sugar) on a low heat with the lid on for an hour, or you can pure tinned pie apple. If you use a bottled apple sauce make sure that it's not sweetened.

    It's good to know what's in the kids food. These are loved by the adults and kids in the family! very moorish. Brown Sugar is far better for you than highly processed and bleached white sugar! You could always make it with less sugar if it offends you. - 14 Mar 2012

    I just tried this recipe and the kids loved it! I used cornflakes and 1/2 cup of sugar and it came out great. I might try 1/3 next time. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe - 04 May 2014
