The other day while I was looking for my high protein flour, I came across lots (and I really mean lots) of balance ingredients from last year's Raya. So, I decided to make muesli bars out of those ingredient before expiry come acalling....

Nutty Muesli Bar


100gm butter

50gm brown sugar

250ml honey


150gm wholemeal flour

1tsp baking powder

200gm rolled oats

100gm sunflower seeds

100gm pumpkin seed

100gm sesame seeds

100gm walnuts/almonds or any nuts

100gm rice puffs (I combined with cocoa puffs)

100gm dried cranberry

100gm golden raisins

100gm Hawaiian coconut flakes

½ tsp salt

Melt butter on low flame, add in brown sugar and stir till sugar dissolved. Stir in honey and bring to boil. Remove and let cool slightly.

Combine B ingredients in a large bowl, stir thoroughly. Slowly pour in butter-sugar-honey mixture.

Mix until well combined. (I used hand gloves)

Take a 10 x 10 x 2 in tray and lined with aluminium foil. Transfer mixture into tray and press to compact.

Bake at 170C around 40-50 minutes or until brown. The temperature depends on your oven. Once baked, remove from oven and press again for a firmer layer.

Let it cool and cut into bars.

I did three recipes, one with dried fruits and two without as my children doesn't really take them...this is the one with fruits

and the one without
