Muesli Balls 1

If you are looking for a healthy after school or lunch box snack for the kids, you can’t go past these

easy and delicious Muesli Balls.  All it takes is a few ingredients and your favourite flavoured

muesli to create this fun take on the traditional muesli bar.  These balls are quite filling, which

makes a batch of them go a long way.  This is a great recipe for the kids to help you with, they will

love scooping up and rolling the mixture before coating it them in a little extra muesli to give them

that bit of extra crunch.  To make these lunch box and school friendly, simply use a nut free muesli.

If you want to try something a little different, try using a plain muesli and stir through 1/2 a cup of

chocolate chips after you have combined all of the ingredients.  You could also add 1/2 a cup of

dried apricots pieces and 1/4 cup of coconut at the end too – yum!
