No bake muesli bar cravings

No bake muesli bar cravings

I remember loving going to the gym with my mum when I was a kid, she was a regular who loved group cardio classes, there was a play area where I’d sit and watch ladies in scrunchy socks, tights and leotards (worn over tights…cringe) keep in unison.  Come to think of it thats probably where I first enjoyed doing exercise too, we were allowed to join class if there weren’t too many ladies in that day.  What I really loved about mums gym was the cafe down stairs, it use to sell seed&nut bars (made in store) and we were obsessed with them!  I’d get one every time I went with her.  Fast forward 20+ years later while pregnant with Ryder I don’t know why but I wanted those bars from my childhood.  From memory I made something similar and made a few substitutions to make it a little healthier, I’m most definitely known in my family as always being the one who eats healthy or ‘boring’ as they’d actually say, but this no bake muesli bar is yum quick and super easy.  They will last a long time when stored and hidden from other members of your household properly (good luck) 😉

If you’ve read my last post finding balance you’ll know we’re expecting baby number 2 and now out of nausea and having an appetite back this is the type of thing I grab in the afternoon for a snack with a cup of tea.

P.s yes its healthy but it has to taste good otherwise why share?! and since sharing is caring happy muesli making.
