By now, nearly everyone has baked a version of the notorious “lockdown banana bread” in their kitchen, so what can you try next?
We’ve been a big fan of these delicious munchie muesli bars – a great morning or afternoon tea snack for the whole family. Get the kids involved, make a big batch in the kitchen and you’ll have snacks for the whole week sorted. That is, if they last that long!
The recipe for these chewy delights can be found on the Chelsea Sugar website here, or follow the steps and method below, including a helpful video brought to you by Chelsea Sugar.
Munchie Muesli Bars
- 125g Butter
- 1 C Raw Sugar
- 2 Tbsp Golden Syrup
- 1 cup Standard Grade Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 C desiccated coconut (if you’re not a fan of coconut, you could substitute this for rolled oats)
- 1 egg, whisked
- 1 C mixed dried fruit (such as raisins, currants, dried cranberries, or even chocolate chips!)
- 5 Weetbix bars or similar, crushed
- Preheat your oven to 180°C and set to bake (or 160°C fan-forced).
- Grease and line a rectangular slice tin (approximately 20cm x 30cm) with baking paper.
- In a large saucepan, melt the butter, raw sugar and golden syrup over a medium heat. Alternatively you could do this in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt the ingredients in bursts of 30 second intervals until the butter is fully melted and mixed with the sugar and syrup.
- Once the butter has melted and mixed with the sugar, add the rest of the ingredients.
- Mix until combined and then tip the mixture into your prepared tin.
- Spread mixture out evenly and press down lightly.
- Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.
- Leave to cool in tin for 5 minutes, then remove and place on a chopping board. Cut into bars while still warm.
