Here at ThermoBliss we LOVE muesli bars! In fact, I used to spend a small fortune on fancy store-bought ones… but now that my Thermie has pride of place on the bench, it’s homemade all the way!!!
These healthy Thermomix muesli bars are based on Dani Valent’s recipe on the Recipe Community, but with a few changes. You can find the original recipe here.
I love that these are so quick and easy to prepare. Oh and did I mention that they taste delicious!? These are slightly crumblier than Dani’s original recipe (as they don’t include any brown sugar), but I find that if you pop them in the fridge before slicing them, they’re nice and easy to cut.
If you’re after a great lunchbox treat for the kids, or just a yummy muesli bar to have with your afternoon cuppa, these healthy Thermomix muesli bars really are delicious. Give them a try… you’re sure to love them!
