Muesli Bars without the muesli

Grain Free Muesli Bar

Here is a recipe for muesli bars without any grains in it for a quick delicious snack or after school treat for the kids.

Every time I make this, I change the recipe depending on the ingredients I have on hand. So this is a rough guide, but play around with what you like. This doesn’t last long in my house!

50g Almonds

50g Brazil nuts

80g Pepitas

50g Sunflower Seeds

130g Sultanas

5 Medjool Dates

30g Shredded Coconut

1 Tbsp Cacao Powder

1 Tbsp Tahini

1 Tbsp Raw Honey

2 Tbsp Coconut Oil

1 tsp Cinnamon

1 tsp Allspice


I have a thermomix so I’ll give recipe for that at the end, but here’s the normal way in a food processor.

Pulse all the nuts and seeds until a rough chunks and put aside

Add all the other ingredients and blend until fairly well mixed

Add the nuts and seeds back in and gently mix together until very well combined

Place into a lined tray and put in a pre-heated oven on 200C for about 20mins or until a nice golden brown on top

Leave to cool and cut into bars.

These can be kept in the fridge or freezer until you want them…. If they make it that long!


For a Thermomix:

Weigh out your nuts and seeds and blitz Speed 5/4 secs and set aside

Add all other ingredients and mix Speed 5/8 secs

Add the nuts and seeds back in and mix Speed 3/5 secs

Place in lined oven tray and into pre-heated oven 200C for about 20 mins

Allow to cool and cut into bars

    Hi there,

    I made these muesli bars without the muesli and they were lovely. However, they didn’t hold together well for me. I did use agave instead of honey as I didn’t have any and I baked at 175 degrees as I was worried they would burn at 200 degrees. my oven is fan forced. Should I increase the temperate next time and do you think honey will make a big difference in terms of holding everything together. they are the perfect afternoon snack without the guilt. thank you.

      Hi Vaneeta,
      I’m glad you liked the taste! My oven is also fan forced, but at 175-180 degrees would still be fine. I would try more coconut oil and definitely honey instead of the agave syrup. Also make sure it’s completely cooled before trying to cut it into pieces.
      Let me know how you go 🙂
