My previous muesli bars have been very popular, so I thought I’d do a new version, and let’s be honest, cranberry and white chocolate are a match made in heaven. These sticky and chewy no bake cranberry and white chocolate muesli bars will hold up well in the lunchbox and can be cut into whatever size suits your lunchbox.
If you want these to be dairy free, don’t drizzle with white chocolate because everything else about them is dairy free! If you don’t need them to be dairy free, feel free to sub the cacao butter (which can be exxy if you don’t buy it at aldi when they have it as a special) for the same amount of normal butter. They will turn out the same as they have with the cacao butter.
These scrummy bars are nut free because of school. If you prefer, you could switch out some of the coconut for flaked almonds if they aren’t going to a nut free environment. Don’t worry about how messy your drizzling might be on top of the bars, no-one will notice when they are cut anyway and to be honest the kids will like the extra chocolate. To get the drizzle like mine, use a fork and flick it a little over the top of the bars then refrigerate to set the chocolate before you cut them.
Watch the insta videos that are in the first muesli bar post! I’ve had readers saying their bars haven’t worked out. The truth of the matter is: the mixture will look like it will not hold together. It will look like sticky cereal. BUT…that’s what means it will stick together! If it’s too wet…they will just be sloppy! Remember: the wet ingredients have a solid state…and refrigerating them, all pressed together…they will return to the solid state. Which means they will hold together, don’t add extra liquid because you think they won’t stick….it will just result in a porridgey mess!
