Vegan, Gluten and Refined Sugar Free Muesli Slice - Honey and Peanut

This is my own creation. I am over buying muesli bars that are high in sugar and very rarely gluten free, when they easily can be. Over the past few weeks, i have made several batches and finally come up with a gluten free, dairy free and vegan slice!! It can also be refined sugar free if you choose not to add it in, I don't usually add sugar and is sweet enough without it. I have based this around an unbaked peanut butter slice and made changes to how i like my muesli bars. I use the peanut butter that is 100% nuts (If you are in NZ the Pics Peanut Butter works well). It has honey and coconut sugar (optional) to slightly sweeten and heaps of raw goodness such as wheat free oats, coconut, seeds, nuts and more. As long as you use the same measurements, you can substitute the nuts and seeds for what you please. This is a very easy recipe that doesn't require many steps or techniques so can be made by anyone. ENJOY

Charlottes peanut muesli slice:
1 cup rolled oats (use gluten free oats if making gluten free slice)
1 cup threaded coconut
½ cup rice flakes
½ cup sliced almonds
¼ cup sunflower seeds
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup chopped mixed nuts (i used hazel nuts as i had some spare)

2/3 cup peanut butter (I use Pics peanut butter that contains only peanuts)
3 T honey (use brown rice malt syrup or agave if making slice vegan)
4 T Coconut oil (use 3T butter if making non-dairy free)
1 T coconut sugar (can also use brown sugar), this is optional. I don't usually add sugar and is sweet enough without it.

Add all dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir to combine.
Add a peanut butter, honey, coconut oil (or butter) into a saucepan over a low heat until melted. Add sugar and stir till dissolved. Take off the heat.

Stir into the dry ingredient till all is combined (If your slice seems too dry add 1-2T of melted coconut oil). Press into a slice tin. Place in the fridge till it is set. Should take around 2 hours or if you are in a hurry 1/2 hour in the freezer.
Cut into squares/bars and enjoy!
