Recipe: Blueberry Almond Muesli Bars

Whilst I try not to snack at work too much, I do love a muesli bar. In my effort to reduce waste wherever I can I decided to whip up some of my own and these blueberry almond muesli bars were the result. They’re so simple to make and don’t even need the oven! I took a batch to work and they were happily gobbled up by my colleagues. I recommend you give them a try!

These blueberry almond muesli bars keep well in the fridge for a few days, so they are perfect to whip up on a Sunday and snack on through the work week. They’re great for lunchboxes too – although be sure to swap out the almond and almond butter for nut-free schools.

I cut the bars in half when I took them into the office which made for lots of excellent snack-sized pieces to share around. Although, most people went back for more than one piece!
