These bars are delicious and full of crunchy seeds and rolled oats for fibre and protein. They keep well in the freezer so they are always ready to go.
I made these bars for my husband after he told me he spends a small fortune buying muesli bars from the petrol station almost every other day with his coffee as a lunch substitute! I made them like some recommended with 1/2 cup apple sauce, used coconut oil instead of canola oil and my seeds mixture was shaved coconut instead of linseeds, used 1/2 cup of almond flake as well mixed with another 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds! It tasted great, I separate the mixture in two square baking dish... this was not a good idea... much better to keep it all in one dish and make them thicker! What I will try next time is to use mashed up ripe banana mixed in Milo chocolate powder! I'm very happy with these and how they turned out and so as my husband! :-) - 25 Mar 2018
Great. I halved the recipe (got 15 bars), omitted the sugar entirely, used ground flaxseed instead of wheatgerm, halved the oil with almond milk and used sultanas instead of chocolate chips. Yum! Easy, versatile base recipe. - 15 Feb 2014
I made a healthier lower fat version that turned out really great. I used 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/2 cup oil, egg beaters instead of eggs and only 1/2 c honey and 1/2 c sugar. I also added some natural peanut butter. They were wonderful, baked them about 30 minutes. Thanks for this great healthy snack. - 02 Jun 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
