Oat and Honey Seed Slice

Here’s a classic oat number, loosely based on an old Women’s Weekly muesli slice.

Ingredients

2 C rolled oats
(blitz them a little so they are finer and will compress well. A few seconds in a blender or grinder will do it)
125g melted butter (or coconut oil)
1/2 C honey
pinch of salt
1/2 C chopped dried apricots (snip with kitchen scissors)
1/2 C shredded coconut
1/3 C sultanas
1/3 C pumpkin or sunflower seeds

Method

Here’s a classic oat number, loosely based on an old Women’s Weekly muesli slice. You know the kind you may have grown up with in your lunch boxes, or perhaps you make it now for lunch boxes. This uses butter, but it could be dairy free by replacing the butter with coconut oil, especially in this colder weather as the coconut oil won’t melt everywhere. It could also use brown sugar rather than honey, but perhaps use a little less as it will be sweeter. Include seeds, nuts and dried fruit that you enjoy, or happen to have in the pantry – just keep the ratios roughly the same and you can’t go too wrong. There is always room for adding dark chocolate bits, as well. Makes 16 squares.

Now with missing ingredients!

 

Preheat the oven to 180ºC.

Combine all the oats and seeds and coconut, and mix with the melted butter and runny honey. Stir it all up together.

Press firmly into a lined baking tin (18 x 20cm) and place in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until just browned. Let cool in the tin, pressing down again help it hold together.

Slice carefully, and it’ll keep for a good week in an airtight container.

    I really want to try this recipe, but the ingredient list doesn’t seem to be there…

      oh dear 😉 Just as well this oat slice is fabulous and you all realised that the ingredients didn’t get published somehow. Happy baking and snacking.

    I found it much too sweet and it didn’t stay together very well. The honey sort of sank to the bottom leaving a gooey mess! Not sure what I did wrong?

      Oh what a shame, perhaps half the honey in your batch next time if it is too sweet (they do differ greatly in sweetness and of course our tastes differ too). And perhaps using less honey will mean it’s not too gooey on the bottom. Thanks for the feedback 😀
