When your kids want something sweet in their lunch box, these are the perfect solution for a healthy snack on the go. Packed with filling muesli, delicious spices, and prunes and honey for sweetness, these crunchy balls are a winner.

You will need:

  •  2 1/2 cups nut-free toasted muesli
  •  1 cup pitted prunes
  •  1/4 cup honey
  •  1/4 teaspoon mixed spice
  •  50g butter, melted, cooled


Process 2 cups muesli, prunes, honey, mixed spice and butter in a food processor until well combined.

Place remaining muesli on a plate. Using 1 level tablespoon of prune mixture at a time, roll into a ball, then roll in remaining muesli to coat. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.

Store muesli balls in an airtight container in the fridge.
