Humanitas Health recipe: Muesli bars for breakfasts and snacks

December 17, 2018

The cereals used for breakfast are called muesli, a German word which means “mixed”, when they are mixed with oatmeal, nuts and fruit. Here is the recipe for muesli bars that are perfect for both a quick breakfast and a healthy snack at any time of day. We saw how to make 24 bars at home with Dr. Elisabetta Macorsini, a nutritionist at Humanitas.



200 g of oatmeal
70 g of soya flour
60 g of skimmed milk powder
60 g of toasted wheat germ
50 g of chopped almonds or chopped walnuts, toasted
100 g dried apples, chopped
60 g of raisins
½ teaspoon of salt
340 g of dark honey
125 g unsalted natural peanut butter
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract


Preheat the oven to 160 °C. Sprinkle the non-stick olive oil cooking spray on a 25 to 30 cm baking sheet.

In a large bowl, add the oats, flour, powdered milk, wheat germ, almonds, apples, raisins and salt. Stir well and mix, set aside.

In a small saucepan, mix the honey, peanut butter and olive oil over low to medium heat until the mixture is well mixed. Do not let the mixture boil. Add the vanilla. Add the hot honey mixture to the dry ingredients and mix quickly until well combined. The resulting mixture should be sticky, but not wet.

Place the mixture evenly in the previously prepared baking sheet. Press firmly to remove any air pockets. Bake until the edges have just browned, about 25 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a grid for 10 minutes, then divide into 24 slices. When they are cold enough to be handled, remove the rods from the pan and place them on the grill to cool completely. Store the rods in airtight containers in the refrigerator.
