88 calorie coconut and chia muesli bars (nut free)

Have you looked at the nutrition panel or ingredients list of packaged muesli bars? There’s not much good news there.

Lots of added sugars (under various aliases), high in calories, and some less than common ingredients (soy lecithin anyone?).

Making your own muesli bars at home helps you remove the strange ingredients, and gives you the chance to make it to suit your exact tastes.

We love these coconut and chia muesli bars and we think you will too. Join the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge to access even more muesli bar recipes like this.
