No-Bake Muesli Bars
- 12 oz. medjool dates pitted (about 2 cups)
- 2½ cups muesli (I used Antioxidant)
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate melted
- sea salt flakes
Place dates in a bowl and cover with warm water. Let soak for about 10 minutes, then drain. While dates soak, line an 8”x8” pan with parchment paper, leaving extra paper hanging over the edge (to lift the bars out with), set aside. Pulse dates in a food processor (make sure they are pitted!) until thick & smooth (like a thick jam) and only small pieces remain. You will probably need to scrape the bowl down a few times during pulsing and can thin out with water if needed. Add muesli and pulse until blended. Press muesli mixture firmly into prepared pan, smoothing out the top. Place in freezer to chill. Once chilled, remove from pan and cut into slices. Dip slices into melted dark chocolate (I just spread a layer of chocolate on the top of mine) and sprinkle with sea salt flakes. Let chocolate harden and place bars in an air-tight container or freezer bag (make sure to add wax or parchment paper between bars so they don’t stick together). Store in freezer. My bars never froze in the freezer, they stayed pretty soft. Freezing simply helps to keep their shape a little better.
