Banana Muesli Breakfast Bars

/, Lunchbox, Sweets/Banana Muesli Breakfast Bars

 Untitledfacebookzinstagramzpinterestz

These were something I recently created by fluke. Turned out everyone in the house loved them so I got a bit more creative with them. These are like a biscuit bar, just a little softer due to the banana.

These are perfect for a breakfast on the go bar or as a lunchbox snack. Just be mindful of nuts though if these are going to school.

These make great biscuits (will make about 48 small biccies) or into 12-18 bars depending on what size you make them. The older kiddies and partner prefer the biscuit version but the baby likes the bar that he can hold on (hang on, he is 16 months old now. I should probably stop staying baby?!)

My granola/muesli recipes that can be used in this recipe (as you can see, we love granola/muesli!):

I use Vanilla Queens Vanilla Powder in this recipe. This is much more cost effective than vanilla beans or vanilla bean paste.

    These look so yummy! And my kids might actually eat them! Thanks!

    Absolutely loved these. They could not have come at a better time after just discovering Uncle Toby’s oats bars. As someone who struggled to eat breakfast I’m so excited to have something I can just grab and go. Plus they’re better than the shop ones.
    I made them with the apple cinnamon granola.

    These are great – they are like muffin bars. I made 16 and they are quite large.
