Make your own delicious muesli cookies – a different muesli bar
I think that it is nice to have something delicious in the lunch box – or for afternoon coffee/tea.
If I want something healthy and filling, I make “Sweet breadsticks – perfect for the lunch box“.
Otherwise, I make these Muesli cookies.
Yes, I know that this word can be spelled in different ways muesli/müesli/granola – usually, I write MUESLI.
These cookies are primarily sweetened with fruit sugars from raisins, dates and bananas.
They contain less white sugar, 50 grams to approximately 20 cookies – 2½ grams pr cookie.
I think that it is ok for a muesli cookie.
I make the cookies small.
Because the fact that they are small makes it OK to take two – or more…
You can easily make the muesli cookies larger.

Yes, you can make these as muesli bars, it’s just more time-consuming.
First, you pour the muesli dough into a square form (buttered or with baking paper) and bake it.
When the muesli cake is baked, remove it from the oven and let it cool.
When you can cut it without breaking the bars, you have to bake the muesli bars again.
– these cookies are only baked once.
Besides, the cookies keep their shape in the lunchbox.
I have experimented with MANY cereal bars and cookies and I like the muesli cookies/granola bars that are COMPLETELY crisp.
I am not alone in this family – Christian like the chewy muesli cookies/granola bars the best, so this is sort of a compromise.
Muesli cookies are more crispy, when they are freshly baked.
You can keep them for a week or so.
Just keep them dry and place a piece of parchment paper between the cookies and enjoy a (small) sticky muesli cookie (or two) – a super tasty treat.
