  1. They taste great.
  2. Important to press down well into pan. Spend several minutes with the back of a large spoon pressing down and zig-zagging across the top, then around the sides.
  3. I make a double quantity which fits into a shallow tray 440 x 300. This makes 48 muesli bars that I make into two bricks 6 x 4 layers. Place grease proof paper between layers. Probably good to make half bricks, as one brick weighs about 800g.
  4. I use dehydrated sultans, cherries, pears, apricots and apples. Any dried fruit is good, chopped into small pieces.
