Home-baked “Mountaineers‘ Muesli Bars“ entice you to dream

One bite of a muesli bar beams me right up to my favourite peak

I close my eyes. The warm rays of sun tickle my cheeks and the gentle breeze makes my hair dance. I see my favourite image in front of me – a sea of mountains. “Oh, I can’t tell you how much I love this feeling.” Such moments conjure up a smile on my face on bad days and allow me forget reality for a just a moment.

Slowly I open my eyes again and there’s a pleasant aroma beneath my nose. “Oh oh, my mountaineers’ muesli bars“ are ready and have to be taken out of the oven.“ I jump off my couch and dash to the oven. Mhmm, that’s smells delicious!”. Just before my “dream“, I had perfected my muesli bar recipe and thought about my next mountain tour, along the lines of #goodvibesonly and #Icanbake. I’m looking forward to when the snow has melted, the alpine flowers are in bloom and we can head out into the vibrant, yet calming landscape :) Such a tasty, home-made muesli bar provides me with a necessary energy boost on every mountain tour - a real power food bar with lots of healthy ingredients.

In case you want to forget what’s going on around you for a moment, then reach for seeds and nuts and bake a few muesli bars with me. Let your imagination run wild. Mix in whatever you find tasty, make them into any shape you like and enjoy them with your eyes closed, thinking about your favourite peak, as #atleastyoucandream (:

I’m eager to hear your muesli bar reactions! (:


Prepare all ingredients for the healthy muesli bar.

First peel the bananas and mash them with the apples.

Add the grated and chopped nuts, oats, coconut oil and flax seeds.

Press the lemon into the mixture and mix the honey into the mixture.

When the ingredients are well mixed let it rest for 10 minutes.
Then spread the mixture thinly on baking paper.

Bake in the oven at 160° C for 15-20 minutes.
Then cut the mixture into bars.
