Healthy Homemade Muesli Bars Recipe with Citrus Fresh essential oil

Healthy Homemade Muesli Bars Recipe with Citrus Fresh essential oil

These homemade muesli bars are super healthy, making them great for lunch or as an after school snack. This muesli bar recipe features Young Living Citrus Fresh essential oil. This recipe is by Chef Kate.

TIP The Citrus Fresh essential oil adds a lovely citrus note. You could also use Lavender essential oil, Lemon essential oil or Orange essential oil in place of Citrus Fresh essential oil.

NOTE You can use a nut butter/spread (like almond, peanut or macadamia) in place of the seed spread if you are not nut sensitive and add ½ cup of chopped nuts too, if you like. I really love coconut butter/spread in these bars in place of the seeds spread, which you can find in a health food store or online. Try adding dark chocolate (70% naturally sweetened) chips or chunks for an extra special treat or perhaps a few cacao nibs. Prep Time: 15 minutes Servings: 12 Cook Time: 25 minutes Total Time: 40 minutes


  • ½ cup (125ml) melted coconut oil, ghee or butter

  • ¼ cup pumpkin seed butter/spread or coconut butter/spread

  • ½ cup (100gm) coconut sugar

  • ¾ cup (185ml) honey, maple syrup, or coconut syrup

  • ¼ tsp sea salt

  • 3 – 5 drops Young Living Citrus Fresh essential oil (to taste) (or 1 drop Lavender essential oil, 3 - 5 drops Orange essential oil or 3 to 5 drops Lemon essential oil)

  • 2 cups gluten-free oats

  • 3 tbsp gluten-free flour or coconut flour

  • ½ cup (40gm) shredded coconut (reserve 2 tbsp for topping)

  • ½ cup sunflower seeds (reserve ¼ cup for topping)

  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds (reserve ¼ cup for topping)

  • ½ cup sesame seeds (reserve 2 tbsp for topping)

  • 2 tbsp honey or coconut syrup (for drizzling over bars)


  1. Preheat oven to 160C and line a medium baking tin with baking paper. Generously rub coconut oil on the paper and set aside.

  2. In a large saucepan combine the coconut oil, nut or seed butter/spread, coconut sugar, honey and salt and cook on low heat while stirring for approx. 3 minutes until the ingredients have melted, dissolved and combined. The coconut sugar may not fully dissolve and that’s fine. Remove from heat.

  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and any Optional Additions you choose and mix thoroughly.

  4. Spread the mixture into the prepared baking tin and smooth the top. Then sprinkle the remaining shredded coconut and seeds over the mixture and drizzle 2 tablespoons of honey or coconut syrup on top.

  5. Bake for 20 – 30 minutes until golden brown around the edges and the middle is semi-set. (Check after 15 minutes to see if the top is browning too quickly and loosely cover with baking paper if needed).

  6. Remove from oven and cool completely in the pan. Lift the bars out of the pan by pulling up on the baking paper. Then transfer to a chopping board and cut into desired sized pieces and remove the baking paper. You can drizzle with a little more honey or coconut syrup before cutting, if you like. The bars will keep in an airtight container or wrapped in baking paper then foil for a few days.
