Trail mix bars

I experimented with these a few weeks ago and they turned out great!  My kids loved them as did others who tried them so I'd say that it is a winner for the school lunch box.  You could substitute the butter for peanut butter if you are making it for a home snack but for school lunch boxes - stick with ordinary butter.


Trail mix bars

  • 100g butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 2 cups puffed rice
  • 1 cup sultanas
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips (85g)
  • 1/2 cup bran cereal

Line a slice tin (18cm x 28cm) with baking paper.  Preheat oven to 180 degrees. 

In a saucepan, add butter and honey.  Melt over high heat then reduce the heat and allow to gentle boil for 2 mins.

In a large bowl, add sunflower seeds, puffed rice, sultanas, choc chips and bran cereal.  

Pour over butter and honey mix and stir to combine. Press down firmly.

Bake in preheated oven for 20 mins.  Remove from oven and refrigerate to set.  Cut into bars and keep in an airtight container in the fridge.
