Muesli Bars with sustainable Ingredients

I’ve made these bars using sustainable ingredients in every cafe I owned and they have been loved my many.  They last for ages in an air tight container and are honestly the perfect treat to pull out over the summer when there are excess kids, impromptu visitors and family gatherings.

These bars use natural and sustainable ingredients such as nuts and dried fruits and if looking to reduce your sugar then swap out the brown sugar for honey.  The bars might not harden as well with the honey as they do brown sugar but wow will they taste as good.

I’m sure they are part of your ‘5 a day’ 😉 and if looking for a more sustainable, zero waste cooking approach then substitute nuts or seeds for what you have in your cupboard but make sure the weights are the same.
