Byron Bay Muesli Balls
Muesli is the only cereal I will buy for my family now. Anything else you buy in a box is pretty much rubbish.
It makes a great base for quick snacks for the kids. I am loving these Byron Bay Muesli Balls. So quick and easy!
Okay, so this is what you need:
2 cups roasted Byron Bay Macadamia Muesli
1 cup organic (sulphur free) apricots
1/4 cup honey
60 grams butter (or use coconut oil for a dairy free option)
1/3 cup desiccated or shredded coconut
Okay, so this is how you do it:
Place muesli, apricots, honey and warm, melted butter in a food processor. Process for 2 to 3 minutes or until well combined.
Place coconut in a shallow dish. Roll tablespoons of muesli mixture into balls. Coat balls in coconut. Set aside to cool for 15 minutes in the fridge before serving.
Gary from Byron Bay Muesli posted me up his range of four award winning mueslis to sample last month. To say we have been enjoying it a lot, is an understatement. We have been cooking with it, making it into bircher muesli and porridge and just eating it out of the packet.
It’s pretty darn good.
I think the secret is the locally-grown macadamia nuts in every pack. Who doesn’t like a mac? The hand roasted varieties also add in macadamia honey and cold-pressed macadamia oil.
As a mum, I also love the fact that it is made with organic and biodynamic ingredients. There is nothing artificial at all, no numbers and no sugar!
I find I only need a small bowl with some fruit as it is so nutrient-dense, so the pack lasts a long time.
Okay, so who wants to win some? Gary is kindly offering to give away six hampers, each containing all four mueslis.
The range. Almond Fig and Pear, Classic, Bircher and Gluten-Free.
This giveaway has now closed. The winners were Teneille, Karlene, Amber, Carmen, Kylie and Amelia. Congratulations!

Very tasty giveaway, thank you
Cathy S says
They all sound divine, but would love to try the ‘Almond, Fig and Pear, would be such a great start to the day.:)
Stacey Shailer says
I love the sound of them all, but Bircher would probably have to be my favourite – perfect on a warm summer morning, and especially good as I like to make it all up the night before and shove it in the fridge until morning – just pull it out and shovel it into my mouth while dealing with the morning rush between hubby, toddler and baby!
All four sound super tempting, but It is the Classic Style I would want to serve up first as such a beautiful “full stop” title hints at the perfect combination of quality ingredients and laugh-out-loud flavour. What a great Australian company this is and I for one will have their products in our home on call any day, any time!
Marcella Hogan says
The almond, fig and pear sounds delish!
Almond, fig and pear is the variety that appeals most to me. I only eat muesli for breakfast, with natural yoghurt and honey. I would love to try this brand!
Mmmm.. Too tough to choose just one but either Gluten Free or Bircher would be us. I do love the sound of the others too.
Cherryl Johnston says
I would love to try the Almond, Fig and Pear, but really would love to try them all.

Fig sounds awesome, nut its the gluten free one for us
Kath Humphrey says

Hard choice… But I’d probably choose Almond Fig & Pear for my first try.
I’m a fairly Classic girl when it comes to muesli, but it would be interesting to try the fig one, I’ve never really given figs a proper try.
My husband is a muesli fiend so I am definitely going to look into this for him. I am still trying to convert him to all things healthy and natural. The classic one sounds good please 🙂
Anita Hope May says
