These are easy, delicious, and you can put whatever you want in them ^^ They also only take about 30 mins to make.
This batch has dried blueberries in it.

There’s a lot of freedom in what you put in it, but start with a base mixture of:

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup wheat germ

add 1/2 cup amounts of sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, linseed, or other similar ingredients.

Fry it up for 5-10 mins until it smells toasted, stirring and mixing the whole time so it doesn’t burn.
Note: Linseed pops a bit when it gets hot enough!!

When its done, put it in a bowl to the side. Add any dried fruit you want now, and mix it up. Mine has dried blueberries in it, although I’ve also used cranberries~

In a small saucepan melt

125g butter
1/2 cup honey (or about half a container. Exact measurements don’t really matter)
1/3 cup sugar

Once it’s melted, bring it to the boil and then turn the heat down. It should be bubbling away for several minutes until it’s quite frothy.

Pour it over the muesli mix and stir it up until it’s all lovely and sticky.

Line a slice tray with baking paper (for less mess) and squish it all in. I use a potato masher to get it all dense~

Let it cool down completely (if you’re too impatient it will fall apart!!)

Pick it up by the sides of the paper, and slide it onto a place suitable for cutting.

Slice it up and store~~
You can theoretically freeze it, but will probably eat it before it will go off so there’s not much need ^^
