Looking for the perfect lunch box snack for your kids… or you? Look no further, these Healthy Homemade Muesli Bars are loaded with good-for-you ingredients and best of all, they’re easy to make!

These tasty bars are the perfect treat for school lunches and after-school snacks. They are also great to take to work and are something the whole family can enjoy. If you are pressed for time in the morning, crumble a bar in a bowl, top with yoghurt and a little fresh fruit and you’ll have a healthy breakfast in no time.

TIP The ingredient list is a little long, but don’t let that scare you; these bars are really easy to make and worth the effort. The Citrus Fresh essential oil adds a lovely citrus note. You could also use Lavender, Lemon or Orange in place of Citrus Fresh.

NOTE You can use a nut butter/spread (like almond, peanut or macadamia) in place of the seed spread if you are not nut sensitive and add ½ cup of chopped nuts too, if you like. I really love coconut butter/spread in these bars in place of the seeds spread, which you can find in a health food store or online. Try adding dark chocolate (70% naturally sweetened) chips or chunks for an extra special treat or perhaps a few cacao nibs.
