Muesli Bars...

   3 1/2 cups wheat and gluten free toasted fruit and nut muesli
   1/2 cup desiccated coconut
   1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
   1/4 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
   11/4 cup sunflower seeds
   1 tbsp. vegetable spread
   1/3 cup honey
   1/3 cup peanut butter
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 20cm x 30cm (base) slab pan. Line with baking paper, allowing a 2cm overhang at both long ends.
  2. Combine muesli, coconut, cinnamon, pepitas, and sunflower seeds in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. 
  3. Place spread, honey and peanut butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 4 to 5 minutes or until mixture has thickened. Add to muesli mixture. Stir to combine. Press mixture into prepared pan. Smooth top. Cover. Refrigerate overnight or until set.
    Lift slice from pan. Cut into bars.
You can change what is in the bars, or add chocolate as well.
Like I did in the second batch:
Just add cocoa powder to the mixture, melt some dark chocolate and spead on top!!
What the mix should look like
before placed in pan and pressed.
