Add Healthy Grains and Favorite Dried Fruits to Your Muesli Bar. Muesli bars have always been enjoyed as a lunch box treat, or simply as a snack to keep on hand.
I even love to crush them up and serve over yogurt. Be creative and use this recipe as a basic spring board from which to make a more individual style muesli bar.
Most of the recipe relies on oats, mixed dried fruit, dried coconut and sugar. The great thing about muesli bar recipes is that you can change the ingredient list to suit your tastes. Feel like some dates in there? Go right ahead. Or why not go for a muesli slice full of dried apricots?
The health benefits of whole grains are well documented, so be adventurous and add some healthy grains into the mix.
