Healthy Muesli Bars
Cheers to the freakin’ weekend Babes! This morning I came across a DIVINE recipe by one of my favourite foodie bloggers, Pheebs Foods! Go check out her KILLER Instagram page (here). My eyes took one look at her Chewy Peanut Butter Muesli Bars and I marched straight into the Healthy Girl Kitchen to create my own take on her recipe. These Healthy Muesli Bars are guaranteed to satisfy those sweet tooths over the weekend!
- 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of puffed brown rice
- *1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of Stonelodge Nut & Seed Granola
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup of cashew butter
- 1/4 cup of (melted) coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon of raw honey
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla powder
- 80g dark chocolate

Have a look at their Facebook page (here) to find out where you can find this awesome product in your area. Please note that you can substitute with another granola of your choice. You can also have a look at Pheebs Foods original recipe (here) to see what alternative ingredients you can use. Method:
- Prepare a baking tray with cling wrap
- Place brown rice, Stonelodge Nut & Seed Granola and almond flour into a mixing bowl.
- On a low to medium heat, melt your coconut, cashew butter, honey and vanilla powder together in a small pot.
- Once your mixture is smooth pour it over your dry ingredients and mix with a spoon until all ingredients are well combined.
- Spoon the muesli mixture into your baking tray and pat down until even.
- Place into the fridge for 15 – 20 minutes.
- While your muesli layer is pre-setting melt 80g of dark chocolate.
- Remove the baking tray from the fridge and pour your dark chocolate over the top. Make sure that it’s spread evenly.
- Place your baking tray back into the fridge and allow your Healthy Muesli Bars to set for at least an hour.
