Everyone's saying it's foolproof but sorry guys I broke it!! Lol my kids talked me in to substituting the dried fruit and coconut for half cup of dark chocolate chips instead and it's way too gooey now!! Bakers be warned... I should have ignored them :) I'm just sitting here watching them hoping they will eventually firm up.
CHELSEA: oh no! Substituting the dried fruit for chocolate chips should be ok but we wouldn't recommend removing the coconut (unless you were going to replace it with an equal quantity of another dry ingredient, i.e. rolled oats).

Very quick and easy to make and also foolproof, And also very tasty. I replaced the maple syrup with honey for a more natural sweetness, the weetbix with quick oats and the raw sugar for brown sugar. They've turned out very nice. I used Almonds, Sunflower seeds, Pumpkin seeds, Cranberries and Dates; and sprinkled the top with crushed white chocolate.
I will definitely be coming back to this recipe again.

Absolutely delicious after adding grated rind of a lemon. YUM

Great recipe. I made a few adjustments I only put half a cup of sugar in, as this is the second time I have made these and found them pretty sweet with all the dried fruit. I used 3 weetbix and 3/4 cup of rolled oats and they tasted great.

My kids prefer these to the shop bought muesli bars we used to buy.

Great recipe. So easy for the kids to help make. Great chewy texture and so many possible combinations to make. We love to make with dried apricot and chocolate chips, cranberry and white chocolate or date and pumpkin seed :-)

I'm so happy to have used this recipe .my friends loved them
And so did I
Thank you for a lovely recipe

I make this at least once a week at the mo, and it is eaten by all 3 kids, plus hubby and me. Not often we find a recipe we all love!

I make this a lot and everyone always comments on it. I make it with chopped up dates for the fruit and occasionally I have added chocolate chips at the end.

This is fantastic. I have been searching for ages for something like this. Super easy and very yummy

I've started using the crumbs from the Weetbix bites packets and it is yum. Also subsituted some of the weetbix for rolled oats for a bit more texture.

Love making these, they have a chewy texture and are great made with molasses. You can put whatever you want in - the recipe is foolproof!
