Recipe – Fruit and Seed Banana Baked Muesli Flapjack Bars

My recipe for High Energy Flapjacks has always been a favourite on the blog. So, when I heard about this great banana baked muesli bars I thought it needed to be shared with the cycling world—these are a great healthy homemade cycling energy food bar.

Combining Rude Health's Ultimate Muesli with seeds, fruit, coconut oil, honey and bananas—these make a great snack either for on the bike or for those early morning or afternoon stomach rumbles.

Ingredients (makes 10 breakfast bars)

  • 120g Rude Health Ultimate Muesli
  • 3 medium size ripe bananas (peeled and mashed)
  • 120g dates (chopped)  
  • 80g runny honey
  • 50g golden sultanas 
  • 50g dried apricots (chopped)
  • 50g dried cranberries
  • 30g Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil
  • 30g pumpkin seeds
  • 30g sunflower seeds 

Method 

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C
  2. Mash the bananas in a large mixing bowl
  3. Chop the dates and apricots (this can be done in a food processor)
  4. Gently melt the coconut oil and honey in a small saucepan
  5. Add the melted oil and honey and the remaining dry ingredients into the bowl
  6. Stir together until all the ingredients are combined. Start mixing with a spatula, but finish mixing with hands to make sure there were no clumps of one particular ingredient
  7. Line a 20x10cm baking tin with baking parchment. Press the mixture into the tin with a spoon.
  8. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes, until the top is beginning to turn golden
  9. Remove from the oven and divide the tray into bars. Leave the tin to cool before removing from the tray
  10. Store the bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 5-7 days
