Muesli Bar Slice

Muesli Slice 3

I took a few pieces of Muesli Bar Slice for Mum and my sister E to try, (only a couple of pieces because I didn’t think they would like it), but they both went crazy for it. Mum said it was very similar to a slice that her mother, Nana C used to make and asked me to write her out the recipe. E loved it and also had me write it straight into her recipe book in my best writing. Her recipe book is a fat old exercise book stuffed with loose recipes which I would love to get my hands on.

This recipe for Muesli Bar Slice is from the Magnificently Simple Marvellous Slice Recipes book and is another easy to make, no bake recipe that tastes really good.

1 Cup rolled oats
1 Cup Rice Bubbles
1 Cup coconut
4 crushed Weet Bix
1/2 Cup mixed fruit (I picked out the mixed peel, no one likes mixed peel. You could use sultanas or dried apricots or whatever you like).

Mix these ingredients together in a large bowl.

Muesli Slice 2

3/4 Cup brown sugar
1/2 Cup honey
1/2 Cup peanut butter
125gm butter

Place the butter, sugar, honey and peanut butter into a saucepan and mix together over a low heat until everything is melted. Bring to a simmer and continue stirring for about five minutes until the mixture starts to thicken.

Mix the toffee mixture into the dry ingredients and press the mixture into a lined slice tin. Refrigerate until set, then cut into squares or bars.
