I have been wanting to bake better options for my kids and then at least I know what goes into their tummies.  These chewy homemade Muesli bars were discovered over at Not Another Slippery Dip, another amazing blogger and mum that I have found.  Michaela juggles 3 kids with a fourth on the way and writes about all the ups and downs of parenting.  She also has some great recipes on her site and I found this one just as I was wanting to start making muesli bars.  The kids thought they were delicious and husband and I ended up taking them to work too.  Full of nuts and healthy good stuff, they were satisfying and very filling.

I added into my recipe so Goji Berries as well as Cacao Nibs instead of the chocolate chips to give it a nice chocolate flavour too.  I also didn’t have any rice bubbles in the cupboard so missed out on those but want to try the recipe again with rice bubbles.
