No Bake additions for the next level.

Ok, you’ve got the foundation recipe. But what can you add to take it to the next level. Well, there’s so much and it really depends on what you like, what you have in the pantry, and your dietary needs. So, for a start, you can add some extra dried fruit such as cranberries – they have great benefits. They are high in Vitamin C, and good for women’s urinary health.

Then, there’s all that really good fibre you can add. Let’s think all those great seeds. Pumpkin, sunflower, flax, chia… You can add 1/4 cup of one, or a tablespoon of all of them. It will add crunch, colour and really good beneficial gut fibre.

And, of course, there are the nuts (not the people in your life, the edible ones). Pistachios, slivered almonds, walnuts. You choose. For a Christmas theme, you could do pistachios, chopped, and cranberries, chopped for that really festive green and red. For a winter theme, you could do walnuts and slivered almonds for the warm colours.

The best addition to No Bake

Chocolate. Got you there. Dark chocolate chips into the mix. Or melted dark chocolate over the top before you put it in the fridge. Or dark chocolate melted on the bottom, and set in fridge for 20 min, before you press the mixture over the top. Be creative with over the top chocolate. Full coverage, or just a lovely stripy drizzle. That’s what makes this muesli bar recipe so good – you can be creative and use what you like!
