budget meals - homemade muesli bars

I can't take credit for this recipe, a Mum at school relayed it to me (hi Belinda) and I've adapted it from there. These muesli bars are yummy and can be adapted to your individual taste or needs. Our school is nut free so we can't send store bought muesli bars for morning tea. By making my own though I can control what goes into them and cater them to the Little Guy's tastes.

You will need
3 cups of rolled oats
1 tin of condensed milk
2-3 cups of other stuff such as pepitas, sunflower seeds, dried fruits, quinoa, chia, cocnut, nuts etc. The list is endless.

Mix your ingredients together ensuring everything is incorporated. Press into a baking paper lined brownie tin and bake at about 160 degrees C for about 30 - 40 mins. I like it when they go quite and dark around the edges and crispy whereas little Guy prefers the softer ones from the middle of the pan.

I've started making two batches, one for the little Guy for school with no nuts and one for Husband Guy to take to work which includes nuts.

So far I have tried Apricot and Coconut, Cranberry, Fig and Almond. I usually include sunflower seeds and pepitas to every one.

There you go, quite cheap to make and fairly healthy little crunchy and sweet snack. Suitable for school lunch boxes and to have with morning coffee.

Sounds delicious. I will certainly be giving this a go :-)

I've tried making something similar with using dates and the sticky, sweet bit to combine it all. Yummo.
