No-bake muesli bars recipe to please fussy eaters

Posted in Recipes.

There’s surely one in every family – that is, a kid who doesn’t like ‘bits’ in their food – and by bits I mean those pesky, minuscule sized pieces of healthy fruit or vegetable parents the world over are hoping their offspring don’t notice. With that in mind, I give you a recipe for plain (ok, there’s choc-chips, so not completely plain), albeit delicious, muesli bars.

And better yet, there’s no baking involved! This recipe just needs a couple of hours to set.

No-bake muesli bars ingredients

  • 60g butter
  • ¼ cup of honey
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 cups quick cooking oats (not to be mistaken for regular rolled oats!)
  • 1 cup Kellogg’s Rice Bubbles cereal
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips


  • Lightly grease a 30cm x 20cm slice tin.
  • Combine quick oats and Rice Bubbles cereal in a large bowl, set aside.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter, brown sugar and honey, stirring, until it comes to a slight boil. Reduce the heat and cook for two minutes. Add the vanilla and stir.
  • Pour the sugar/butter/honey/vanilla mix into the cereal/oats mix and mix together until all cereal and oats have been coated in sticky golden goodness!
  • Press the combined mix firmly into the slice tin so that the muesli bars will be a couple of centimetres thick. You may need to ‘short fill’ the tin, pushing the mix into one side only – and yes, press it in hard so it sticks together when it sets.
  • Sprinkle your freshly pressed muesli bar slab with the chocolate chips and press them in lightly with the palm of your (cool) hand.
  • Cool on a counter top in the tin for a couple of hours or if patience isn’t your virtue, pop the tin in the fridge for an hour before cutting it into bars.


  • This recipe is based on the No-Bake Chocolate Chip Granola Bar recipe from Lauren’s Latest.
