It really doesn’t get much easier than this! These are my “EEK! There in nothing left in the pantry for the lunchbox and I need to make something” go to recipe. I thought that name may be a bit too long as a title on the blog post and recipe card so shortened it to Two Ingredients Muesli Bars. You are welcome.

What I love about these is they are so very versatile. You can use any toasted muesli that you have in the pantry. If you can’t have nuts in your house or school simply use a nut free version. Want extra fruit? Use a fruit filled muesli. You can use any dried fruit you like to form these bars. I use whatever is on special so they are super budget friendly.

If you are wanting to make your own muesli or granola why not try some of my recipes!?

    Thank you Peta!! It was 7.30am and I didn’t have enough snacks for lunch boxes. You just saved me, and the best bit was when my 5 year old went ” Woah what are they?” I told her and she did a mini fist pump and a “Yes”!!!
    I dropped the kids off to school with full lunch boxes and came home for a cuppa and a little snack of my own! They were delicious and so simple. I’ll definitely be making them again!!
