GF Lunchbox Slice

Hi Guys,

A few weeks ago Kirrilly Lindberg posted onto the FB page if we knew of a good muesli bar recipe. Then Megs posted the Nutty Cereal Bars Recipe  which was YUM! So I got a thinking for all the gluten free followers on a nice fruity / seedy bar. I guess as it is without oats I can’t really call it a Muesli Bar. So here we go lunch box bars!

I do have a confession to make… I usually love simple quick 4 or 5 ingredient recipes… this is not one of them ! Having said that whilst it looks like I have included all bar the oates in the cupboard, I already had all the ingredients in the pantry! Especially at this time of year! AND the important stuff… It’s moist and delicious!


1 Green Apple (cut in quarters and seeds out.)

40g Dried Cranberries ( or Currants)

50g Figs (I had dried soft and juicy in a packet)

100g Sultana’s

50g Water

150g Banana (about 3 medium banana’s)

40g Pepita’s (Pumpkin Seeds)

20g Sesame Seeds

60g Sunflour Seeds

1 tbls Gluten Free Baking Powder

150g Gluten Free Flour

40g Coconut (desecrated coconut)

130g Butter

60g Agave Nector

100g Golden Syrup


  1. Add Apple, dried fruit and water to the TM bowl and chop for 4 seconds on speed 6. 
  2. Cook fruit mix for 3 minutes at 100 degrees on speed Reverse + Speed Soft. Once cooked set aside.
  3. Add banana to the TM bowl. Set to the closed lid position and turbo once or twice to mash banana. Add banana to the Fruit mince and set aside.
  4. Add butter to the TM bowl and melt for 3 minutes, 60 degrees on speed 2.
  5. Add all remaining ingredients including the fruit mince and banana and mix to combine. Reverse + Speed 3 for 20 seconds.
  6. Pour mixture into a lined slice tin and bake at 180 degrees for 45 minutes.
  7. The slice should be golden brown. Let cool in tray and once cooled slice into “bars” .


Mixture all ready for the oven.

Our Squiggly Wrappers!

Afternoon Tea all wrapped up!

Close up of the Slice! YUM!!



  • The Agave nectar can be substituted with honey and the golden syrup can be substituted with Maple Syrup.
  • I put Miss Ruby to work today… I have got some butchers paper that I let her loose on decorating for ‘wrappers’ for her special bars. A little tip if your on the hunt for butchers paper (makes great wrapping paper) head to a storage unit place… They sell supplies for packing up the house and the butchers paper is great!
  • Cut out a square of butchers paper – a little bit of baking paper and wrap the bars. Use a little double sided tape to stick them together.
  • The figs I used were in a packet in the dried fruit isle. They were “Soft and Juicy” – you can use Dates instead if you have them in the fridge!
  • We have had them for Afternoon tea with banana milkshakes.
  • The paper wrappers was possibly the act of a desperate mumma counting down the days till Kindy starts 🙂
  • Thanks Kirrilly for the inspiration!!
