Carob Muesli Bars

I know this isn’t the most healthy alternative of muesli bars, but it’s great for a special treat or even cut into little squares for a party. My kids have grown up not eating commercial muesli bars since they are not failsafe, and in the past when I have tried to make something like them or made the baked versions, they were not very impressed. So just telling them that there were marshmallows in it I had their attention. Another reason I like this one is because it is a no bake slice. When my oven is playing up or in the middle of summer when I really don’t want my oven on, it’s perfect!Domestic Diva - Carob Muslie Bars

    What do you mean by puffed quinoa? Are you meaning cooked quinoa?

    • No, puffed quinoa is not cooked quinoa. The puffed version you can buy at health food stores and is a bit like rice bubbles only smaller. It is used as a cereal. 🙂

    Could I use puffed millet too? Is that failsafe?

    I don’t have Rye flakes – can I just leave out?
