Fructose Free Muesli Bars

This is my go-to recipe for a healthy, slightly sweet snack that is also school-lunch friendly, as it is nut free.


  • Wheat-free oats 150g
  • Pumpkin seeds 30g
  • Sunflower seeds 30g
  • Flax seeds 30g
  • Chia seeds 15g
  • Sesame seeds 15g
  • Coconut flakes 30g
  • Puffed amaranth or rice 15g
  • Real vanilla extract 1tsp
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup warm water


Step 1 Place oats, seeds and coconut flakes into a food processor or thermomix and whizz for a few seconds to chop ingredients slightly (you can omit this step if you prefer a chunkier texture.)

Step 2 Mix maple syrup and melted coconut oil together.

Step 3 Add maple syrup, melted coconut oil and water to mixture. Mix thoroughly.

Step 4 Preheat oven to 160C. Line a small baking tray with baking paper. Pour mixture into baking tray. Cover with another small sheet of baking paper and press until mixture is flat and even.

Step 5 Bake in oven for 30 minutes. Score into bars or squares before too hard.
