Easy Chewy Muesli Bar Snack | Vegan Recipe

Sometimes I suck at making things that require baking, and sometimes I have a little win. I remember the feeling of craving some sort of bar, a chewy bar that is. And ones that when stored in the fridge get a little crunchy… Like granola kind of ism.

When I made this and it was sitting in my fridge for a day or two, I worked out so much can be created out of this cooked bar. During that time I have thought of endless ways how I would use it.

Watch the video, and think about how you would use this bar.

For me that week that I made this, I ended up adding and using the bar as a rustic crumble on some stewed winter fruits, creating a wonderful yummy warming dessert or breakfast served with some sort of epic ice cream or some coconut yogurt.

It’s that moment of indulgence as I smear some of my chocolate crack spread (the recipe is in my 2nd cookbook that’s all sweets) all over the top of each bar. Then into the fridge, it goes to set and becomes crunchy.

So many options.

And that’s what I love about this recipe, it doesn’t just have to be a bar.

Let me know what you do with this epic little recipe.


2 cups coconut sugar
1/2 cup boiling water
250ml fresh orange juice
2 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp allspice
2 tsp vanilla paste
3 cups oats
1 cup almonds, roughly chopped
1 cup dried cranberries or sultanas
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
2 cups shredded coconut

Soak the dried fruit in 250ml fresh orange juice overnight.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Line a baking tray with baking paper. I used a 15in long and 10in wide tray.
In a pot, bring the water to a boil and add the sugar, spices, and vanilla.
Combine until the sugar has completely dissolved, you are not after this to boil, just hot enough to not see any sugar granules.
Add all the dry ingredients to a bowl.
Add the soaked dried fruits.
Pour in the sugar syrup.
Mix all very well.
Transfer 1/2 of the mix to a food processor and process until it’s looking like a sticky dough.
Remove and fold together with the other half that’s chunky.
Transfer the mix and press down hard.
Cut some temporary bar lines into the pressed mix.
Bake for 20 minutes.
