    German style Muesli bars are similar to flapjacks, but don’t contain as much sugar. These are a great snack on the go, are useful in lunch boxes, or post workout. Muesli bars contain a great balance of complex carbohydrates for slow release energy, fibre, protein, and healthy fats. Here, dried fruits add a lot of the flavour and sweetness. These bars are raw and vegan, so all the goodness is preserved.
    Ideas: if you feel like it, melt some dark chocolate over gentle heat, and dip each bar in to dry on a rack.

    Homemade German style muesli bars


    • Start by covering a baking tray (20cmx20cm) with parchment paper, making sure that the walls are covered too.
    • Cut the dried fruits into small pieces, this can be messy as the apricots in particular can be sticky.
    • Take your time. Melt the cocoa butter in a pan over medium heat, add the dried fruit and stir well to cover them all in the cocoa butter.
    • Next, stir in the oats, making sure they are well covered in the cocoa butter and well mixed with the dried fruit.
    • Now it’s time to stir in the almonds and flax seed.
    • Finally, drizzle over the honey and mix that in well too.
    • Now, add the mixture into the baking dish, making sure to pat it down with a spoon.
    • Leave to sit in the fridge until hardened, or for about 1 hour.
    • When it’s fully hardened you can cut the muesli bars into equal slices and store in an airtight container for a few days.
