Homemade muesli bars

I have been looking for a muesli bar recipe for ages. One for a crunchy, nutty, seedy bar* just like a bought muesli bar. But none are quite right.
Too soft.
Too cakey.
Too crunchy.
Falls apart - ends up looking like granola!

But I think I have nailed it with this recipe from River Cottage.

Although I omitted the chilli and rosemary, & opted for pink salt instead.
I used 200g pepitas,and added 100g slivered almonds
The rice malt syrup was the winner, the perfect " glue" for homemade muesli bars! Yummy, just right consistency. They hold together just right. Not too sweet, nice and crunchy. A definite winner, will make them with cranberries next time!
* that is to say I have been looking for a muesli bar recipe which is not like one of those budgie treat bars you hang in a bird cage, as opposed to looking for a dodgy pub!!!


  1. They look fab! might give these a go.

  2. Found the Rice Malt Syrup at Brunswick IGA-it is the magic ingredient I have been looking for! Bought some dried blueberries a the Preston Market on the weekend so will try them in the next batch!

  3. I really like these:,
    but my favourite is my mum's recipe, so I needed it when I moved out of home many years ago.
