Super Easy Muesli Bar

I returned  home from work this evening and decided to investigate the supply of fillers for lunch box snacks and found we were sadly lacking in edibles, so I whipped up a batch of super quick and easy muesli bars. After the day I had at work I didn't feel like doing much else.

I use this base for all the muesli bars I make and then add extras to it so that the bars are not always the same

125g butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 cup rice bubbles
1 cup coconut

and then add as extra
250 g mixed nuts (I like 125 g cashews and 125g almonds) roughly chopped or whole
1/2 sup sultana,currants, dried fruit- apricots dried apple and dates
small handful of sunflower seeds
you can add chocolate or peanut butter if you like

TURN OVEN ON 150 degree C
Melt butter sugar and honey together until liquid
Pour over dry ingredients
Mix until combined ( I'm lazy and do it in my electric mixer for 10 seconds, the bowl is nice and big to hold all the ingredients )
Transfer into lamington / slice tray non stick
and cook in 150 degree oven for 40 minutes

ALLOW to cool completely before cutting
Makes 16 - 20 bars
Wrap in plastic cling wrap ready for lunches or place in airtight container

Too much butter will make bars chewy, more sugar makes them crunchier
