I'm addicted to cereal bars, but here they can cost the equivalent of nearly $2 for what amounts to a 10x3x2cm bar (super expensive). I saw this recipe at work and took down notes in my usual shorthand fashion on a tiny square of paper.

So after getting all my ingredients, I start mixing it all together when I suddenly realise that I don't know how long to caramelise the honey part of it. So I drag my fiance off his XBox and put him on stirring duty while I run to the computer to go check.

Now I could swear I saw this recipe on Crafster, but the Breakfast Bar recipe on the front page is totally not the one I saw. I thought I was going mad.

Looong story short, they're in the fridge now (probably not fully caramalised), however, I've found the recipe again and proven to myself that I'm not going insane.  Grin

I used pecan nuts and dried cranberries (mmm dried cranberries). I'll let you know tomorrow (I can't wait for breakfast).

Feedback! I had a bar for breakfast this morning (they're quite filling!)

Mine was VERY hard when I took it out of the fridge, cutting it was lots of fun, I'm sure it'll be easier if I take it out of the fridge for a bit.

They're very nice but next time I think I'll up the ratio of Rice Krispies to oats as I prefer a cruchier less dense bar. Also I think I'll either add more sugar or replace half the honey with syrup to make them a bit sweeter.

But otherwise, awesome recipe!

I'd like to make these, but I'm allergic to nuts.  What's a good substitute?  Seeds are fine and dandy, I guess, but I'm sort of allergic to some of those too.  Sad

I'm so going to make these, we love muesli, and these look so good. Thanks for the recipe, and yay for a vegan recipe with gramms Grin Grin

@nachturnal: you could leave the nuts away entirely. Oats and fruits sounds yummy, too. Are you allergic to almonds?

Almonds, peanuts, pistachios, hazelnuts, walnuts, pinenuts... and those are just off the top of my head.  Sad

Any ideas on keeping them tasty but less sugary? I'll be making them for me and the DD, but DH is diabetic so will abstain. I can use splenda. When I make dry granola I use applesauce, so I can cut down on oil and honey. But if anyone has any other tips I'd love to hear them!

I've been looking for a recipe for muesli bars for the same reasons you were, and although I can't try this today, I am definitely saving this to try soon Cheesy
