Chocolate Muesli Bars

 Choc muesli
I love these muesli bars (or granola, what ever you fancy), I’ve made them a few times now.  They taste quite good and you know what has gone into them.  They are dense and delicious.  You can always add in your own favourite muesli bar ingredients if you want too :)


Makes: 24

1 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup cashew nut pieces
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup milk chocolate, melted
½ cup sesame seeds
½ cup pumpkin seeds
½ cup liquid honey
¾ cup Milo powder
¼ cup raw sugar
125g butter

Preheat oven to 180°C.  Line the base of a large slice tin (30cm x 25cm).  Combine the coconut, rolled oats, cashew nuts, seeds and Milo in a large bowl.

Place the honey, raw sugar and butter in a small saucepan and, stirring constantly, bring to the boil.  Continue to stir and simmer the mixture for 5 minutes.  Add the dry ingredients and mix well.

Press the mixture evenly into the tin.  Bake for 18 – 20 minutes, until the top is golden brown.  Cool in the tin and drizzle with the melted chocolate (I mixed my chocolate in while the mixture was still warm).  Cut into bars and store in an airtight container.

*Notes: You could always add dried fruit such as raisins or apricots to this.  I think bits of banana chips could be quite tasty.  I would probably add about half a cup.
