Healthy & delicious Muesli Bar

This delicious Muesli Bar is surprisingly easy to prepare: Mix the ingredients in a blender, spread the mix evenly to a baking dish, freeze and then cut into pieces.

Muesli Bar is made of almonds, pumpkin- and sunflower seeds, soy / rolled oats, dates, and hemp powder. That makes the Muesli Bar a healthy, protein-rich snack that is high in omega fatty acids. This recipe is modified from Green Kitchens Stories' lovely and practical App.


Dry ingredients:
1 cup / 160 g pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup / 80 g of sunflower seeds
1 cup /100 g dried, shredded coconut
1/2 50 g hemp protein powder (a green powder, which is sold in health food stores)
6 tablespoons soy flakes (The original recipe uses oatmeal flakes - both will do)
2 tablespoons poppy seeds

Wet ingredients:
20 dates, stoned (according to the instructions fresh dates, I used dried dates, that were soaked in water about an hour)
6 tablespoons coconut oil
4 tablespoons of cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Mix the dry ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pulse carefully to keep the consistence crunchy. 
2. Place the mixture in a bowl and set aside.
3. Mix the wet ingredients in a food processor to a smooth paste. This might take some time - you may need to add a little water to make the food processor run properly.
3. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together, either by hand or with a fork.
4. Spread the batter evenly into a 28 x 18 cm baking dish.
5. Set the dough in the refrigerator or freezer for about 30 minutes.
6. Cut into bars.
7. Wrap them in  paper and store in an airtight container. Muesli bars will keep for about a week in the refrigerator.

I packed a few Muesli Bars with us to the swimming hall

- A nice and tasty snack after swimming!

I gave some Muesli Bars to my friend and her daughter - they fell in love with the wrapping, 
the green thread reminded them of Christmas gifts :)


  1. These sound delicious and healthy. I like all the ingredients in this muesli bars, I especially like the pumpkin and sunflower seeds.

    1. Hi Dawn,
      I like also the a bit of a nut-like flavor of pumpkin and sunflower seeds! They go well with wok-dishes and with a breakfast yoghurt as well:-)
