I know those muesli bars up there look like a disaster. It was one of those Sundays when I tried to overachieve. I do that to myself all the time and sometimes I end up feeling overwhelmed.
I read Zoe's post on these Cookie-Like Muesli Bars Slices that her son was crazy about. I have since lost my baking mojo and hence you don't see Phong Hong Bakes baking anything. So I thought this recipe would give me a shot in the arm.
So. Since it was a busy Sunday with my meal prep and all, I set out to bake these muesli bars. It's not that difficult to make. You basically mixed up a bunch of stuff with melted butter and honey and bake it. I did not have golden syrup, so I substituted with honey.
What came out of the oven smelled wonderful. It was nutty and coconutty. I let it cool for a while before I sliced them into bars. I did not do a good job and as Zoe mentioned, these are crumbly.
They are crispy on the outside and very chewy in the middle. Not too sweet at all. Though I enjoyed these muesli bars when they were still warm, I found them too chewy for my liking.
