Recipe: Muesli Slice

Miss 11 enjoys lunch boxes as much as I do and often comes home with requests of what friends have in their lunch boxes.  Thankfully I’ve got great friends who share their winning recipes with me.  This recipe is a winner with Miss 11 and her bestie so I’m sure it will be a hit with your kids too.  I made a batch and popped some in the freezer for those days when the cupboard is bare.
