NuZest Nut Butter Muesli Bars

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup smooth nut butter
  • 1 cup mix of your favourite nuts, seeds, and/or dried fruit

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted

  3. Add honey, nut butter, and coconut oil to a small saucepan and heat on low until mixture is just warmed through.

  5. Once everything is thoroughly mixed, transfer to a small lined baking tray and press mixture down firmly into a thin, even layer.
  6. Cover with cling wrap and place in the fridge or freezer to harden for 30-60 minutes.

  8. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
