easiest muesli bar slice

Sometimes a recipe is sooooo easy that I just have to make it………….because it’s easy! And as soon as I read this one (from this book) I knew I had to make it. I’ve had to adapt it because nuts don’t belong in anything that is going to preschool or school but you have to stop what you’re doing and make it…………because it’s good. Oh and it has a can of sweetened condensed milk in it too. And if you’re a lover of the stuff like me then you’re going to love making these – because someone has to scrape a spoon around the can and finish off the last bits, don’t they?

what you’ll need
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup rice bubbles
1/2 cup shredded/desiccated coconut
1 can sweetened condensed milk
good splosh of maple syrup or honey or golden syrup

mmmmmmmm the good stuff!

Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl, mix well and flatten into a lined square or rectangle baking tin. Bake for about 40 minutes in a 160 degrees C or 300 degrees F oven until it’s lightly brown all over. This is so easy that the kids can make it too – just be careful of the sharp edges on the can!

My oven is now in F so you’ll find me giving both temperatures from now on. Leave to cool in the pan (if you can, I couldn’t) then slice and enjoy. Next time I might add some dried fruit to give it a bit of colour but like me it’s sweet enough as it is!


  1. Obrigada,tenho todos os ingredientes,vou fazer amanhã.Adoro finalizar os detalhes…Beijos nas crianças lindas e DEUS abençoe a todos.

  2. mm mmm, just put rice bubbles on shopping list.

  3. Yum. Going to have to try this. (But will probably add some chocolate chips!)

  4. Now in the oven! Used up the last of the rice bubbles and oats though so if we want more I will need to buy some.

  5. I make them this way too, I always add dessicated coconut, sultanas and chocolate chips. my daughter and husband love them!

  6. yum that looks really good! have to put that on the ‘to make’ list, the kids would love it..and me to of course!

  7. I haven’t made anything with Rice Bubbles in it for ages!!!! That’s definitely on my to do list now : ) YUM!

  8. I bought some rice bubbles last week thinking to use them in baking and viola! you have supplied the recipe! Fortunately both school and kindy this year are allowing nuts so I will add them and anything made with a can of sweetened condensed milk is always a winner with me!!

  9. I have made one similar to this that uses muesli instead of rolled oats and I have also added choc chips – very yummy

  10. I’m going to make this tonight, I didn’t know if I had condensed milk but it turns out I have two cans. Thanks for the recipe!!

  11. Thanks I’m so making this, it looks delish.

  12. Mmmmm … condensed milk! Apparently my father-in-law used to sneak condensed milk & jelly crystals and mix them together. Sugar high!!!

  13. Ooo yummy Corrie, I could make this so quickly. Minimal ingredients which is even better. Thanks so much for sharing xo

  14. OOOO this looks so wonderfully yummy! I like easy easy EASY! I have a five year old that likes her tasty treats now. Your blog is really fun, thanks for sharing.

  15. Corrie, I made this last night straight after reading your blog post. So easy and super delish! Everyone got some in their lunch bag (including me!) – Thankyou.

  16. Those are called Rice Krispies in the states… I think I like Rice Bubbles MUCH better though!!

  17. Found a link to your recipe on pinterest & had to try it! I made them with quick oats & a mix of rice bubbles & coco pops – so easy & delicious! thanks for sharing!

  18. Hi there ive stumbled across your recipe while looking for a nut free easy museli bar recipe and just wondered what works best out of the maple syrup, honey or golden syrup?

  19. Just made them, but they haven’t quite made it in the oven yet since I am eating the mixture :)

  20. Just making this now with the tin of soy condensed milk I’ve been holding onto for a while. Will be great as part of the birthday party morning tea tomorrow!
