This Thermomix muesli bar (or Granola bar) recipe is super quick and easy. I used to make something similar for my son years ago. So if you’re a mum and you’re trying to satisfy, “Mum I’m hungry” snacks or lunch box treats, save this one, it’s a keeper.
If you bake them off for the time I’ve stated in my recipe you’ll achieve a crunchy bar if you want them a little softer and chewier just bake for a shorter time. We love crunchy here, but for little ones, you might want soft and chewy.
You can change the fruit or nuts to whatever you like, just keep the weights the same for each. And you can stick them in the freezer in individual portions and dole them out each day for school. Yay!
Every time I have my grandson over I find myself in the kitchen, baking something. I’m not sure why that is anymore, he’s starting to lose the “less cook somfin Nan” feeling. Maybe it’s a nurturing mothering sort of thing, or maybe it’s just habit. Oh, and I do love to see his face when he’s sampling.
The Tin I used is called a USA Biscotti Tin. They’re brilliant for all sorts of slices. Right shape and size and non-stick.

- 80 g butter
- 50 g brown sugar
- 45 g honey
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 160 g oats not quick oats
- 60 g dates chopped fine. Or other fruit of your choice great way to use up leftovers
- 20 g desiccated coconut
- 60 g nuts I used chopped almonds in this one but anything you like or a mix
- 40 g pepitas
- 1 pinch of cinnamon
- 1 pinch of Allspice or mixed spice
- 1 pinch salt
- Line a tin 14cm (w) x 30cm (l) x 5.5cm (h) with baking paper leaving a little extra on two sides, so they're easy to remove later.
- Preheat your oven to 180°c
- Weigh the sugar, butter, honey and vanilla into the TM bowl and set to 50°c/5 mins/ speed 3.
- Weigh the remainder of the ingredients into the TM bowl and set to reverse speed +3/ 10 seconds (if you have a TM 5 you can be doing this in a bowl on top of your TM while the last step is happening. Yes you can weigh while it’s working but not if it’s rocking around. ?
- Pour the mixture out of the jug into the prepared tin and gently press down to flatten them.
- Pop them in the oven and bake for 20 minutes then cover with a baking paper lined foil hat like this and bake for a further 15 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes, then using a knife mark the top into 10 – 12 portions while still warm. Allow to cool completely in the tin and when cold, remove and finish the cutting.
