Nuts, or no nuts, you decide, will you have nuts or not? This particular version of the Eatwell NZ recipe has swapped sesame seeds for sunflower, and almonds for mixed nuts. But the results were voted to be scrumptious by all taste testers.

Why Eatwell NZ published this recipe

Nicola, at Eatwell NZ says this about Muesli bars in the supermarket, back in September, 2011, “It’s hard to find the perfect muesli bar at the supermarket. Sugar is often the second ingredient on the list, and they often taste a little average to tell the truth.”

And the search continues… just this week in August 2016, some 5 years after the above muesli bar recipe was posted, we received a request from a loyal New Zealand Coconut Oil Shop customer. It reads like this.

“Would appreciate more sugarless (using dates etc for sweetening) or raw recipes that use coconut oil.”

So that is why this Coconut Resort blog posted our version of this recipe. We love customer interaction, and we love to provide the Smiliest Service!

We also received this fine piece of advice. “Where it says ‘Heat the honey…’ you could add: GENTLY heat the honey. – because
(1) Honey loses its natural enzymes when overheated.
(2) It takes on bitter taste when over heated
(3) It becomes toxic when over heated.
All this can be avoided, by not heating honey above the temp of 104Deg C. The ancient system of Ayurveda considers uncooked honey to be nectar and cooked honey as poison. (they advise never to heat it above 104Deg C)”

Have you seen the reader comment below?

We heard that this goes well with dates and Ancient Wisdom Coconut Oil as well as White Gold brand.

Our reader Marie write in, “Thanks for the Eatwell Coconut Oil Muesli Bars recipe! I made them (using Ancient Wisdom and 6 dates) and they are beaut.”

    Hi Neil,
