MuesliFusion Banana Bars (Gluten-Free)

Muesli5

It’s been quite a while since I’ve shared a recipe with you all. Don’t worry, I’m making it up for it today – man do I have a delicious recipe for you guys!

When I went to Park City to attend the Blend Retreat a few weeks ago, I was very impressed by all of the tasty meals and snacks provided by the sponsors. But of the two breakfasts, one dinner, and multiple snack breaks provided, one product in particular left me raving about it the entire weekend:

Muesli Fusion! Seriously, ask my roommates – I talked about it all weekend, ha.

MuesliFusion co-sponsored the first breakfast at Blend, and I was really impressed when I heard how they gave back to organizations that support the environment. I was also impressed at the mention of the ingredients they used – whole foods without any added preservatives, transfats, hydrogenated oils, or artificial flavorings. Now, I’d actually never tried muesli before the day, so when I filled my bowl up with Morning Zest and poured in some almond milk, I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Well, needless to say, I was blown away! The combination of oats, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, raisins, and cranberries is just a perfect combination.

When MuesliFusion told us about their recipe contest, I knew I had to get in on it. Plus, it got me in the kitchen baking again! I hadn’t made any type of bars in quite a while, so I decided to go with Muesli Banana Bars.

MuesliFusion Banana Bars

Prep time: 5 minutes

Bake time: 35 minutes

Makes 10-12 bars

1 c. MuesliFusion Morning Zen

1 c. Almond meal/flour

2 large ripe bananas (smashed)

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tbsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. sea salt

2 eggs

1/4 c. coconut oil (melted)

1 tbsp. raw honey

1/2 c. chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and spray a load pan with nonstick spray. Add all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix to combine. Add the rest of the ingredients, and stir until mixed together. Pour the batter into the loaf pan, and cook for 35-40 minutes, using the toothpick method to check for doneness.

Then, devour!

We may or may not have any more bars left in the house. BUT, I packed a couple up for Lauren, who I’m meeting for a hike later this morning, and for my neighbor who also requested some. These bars are delicious – and husband approved! Shane loved them just as much as I did.

Now I gotta scoot. Time to teach a core class and train a client Open-mouthed smile

What’s the last thing you baked?

  2. Hi Paige, Are the oats in the cereal gluten free? That would be AWESOME. Usually oats are not gluten free unless they specifically say so, so I was curious because I would make this in a heart beat if they were!!

  3. you talked about the cereal or the Ian?? :) :)

  5. That looks great! It’s sad to say, but I can’t even remember the last thing I baked. I think it was skillet cornbread that turned out just okay. Baking is not my forte.

  6. These look delicious . . . but am I missing the banana in the recipe? I don’t see it in the ingredients. I definitely want to try making these!! That muesli was one of my favorite items from Blend!

  9. That’s definitely a clever use of muesli!
    The last thing I baked was a three-layer chocolate cake for my mom’s birthday. It turned out fabulously!

  10. Oh yum. These look delicious! I have one question though, what makes them banana bars? Is there banana in them? The last thing I baked was a coconut banana bread and it was SO good. I’m having a real craving for cookies today though so I think I might be baking those tonight!

  11. oh, those bars look gooood! sadly grains (all of them now), nuts and eggs are out of the picture for me right now… my muesli really wants to be eaten, but in the cupboard it sits. For now. ;) bookmarking this recipe for later!!

  12. Yes, you certainly did talk about “MOOSE-ELL-EE” all weekend. ;)
    You better put those bars in the freezer, girl. It’s a good thing you forgot them today- after that hike, I would’ve eaten all of them in 2 seconds!

  14. My god these look good! The last thing I baked was blueberry rhubarb crisp.

  15. Oh gosh, these looks incredible!! The flavors would mesh so well together between the museli, banana, honey, and coconut oil. Yum!
    I wonder if I could make these eggless somehow…
    The last thing I baked was kabocha squash. I have a problem.

  17. YUM!! Can I come over?? ;)

  18. I tried these and though they were just fab. And as a runner I really enjoy it as a health early morning power snack before my mid morning run. :-)
