Healthy Lunchbox Alternatives!!

With the kids going back to school shortly…why not get them to make their ‘own’ healthy muesli bars???!!!

Full of nutrients, protein, essential fatty acids – all for BRAIN POWER!!!   And about $5 per dozen bars – that’s great for every one! 😉

You can make some for you too…..add nuts of your choice if not an issue for you – just keep the “nut-free” option for school. 

Nut Free Bars

Ingredients: 

  • 1.5 C rolled oats
  • 3/4 C shredded coconut
  • 1 C dried fruits of choice (sultanas, or chopped apricots, dates etc)
  • 1/4 C sesame seeds
  • 1/4 C pumpkin or sunflower seeds
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour (to aid binding)
  • 3/4 C honey (adjust depending on consistency)
