    Makes: 12 muesli breakfast bars

    • 100g butter, softened
    • 25g golden caster sugar
    • 1 medium egg yolk
    • 50g rolled oats

    1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
    2. Beat the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. In a separate bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients then mix into the butter mixture to make a firm dough. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 10 to 15 minutes.
    3. On a floured surface, roll or press out the dough to a 22cmx16cm rectangle and cut into 12 biscuit bars. Arrange on the prepared baking trays.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and cool slightly on the tray before transferring to a cool rack.


    Wrap 2 to 3 bars in paper for a great breakfast on the go! You can also try making the bars with other dried fruits.
