Rolled Oat Slice

Rolled-Oat-SliceMy friend Meredith who gave me the delicious Rich Moist Chocolate Cake Recipe, has also given me a couple other of her favourite recipes to try. On Saturday we tried her Rolled Oat Slice. This is very similar to Anzac slice and will be a great recipe for lunch box treats. I doubled the recipe so there would be enough to last a couple of morning teas during school holidays.

Rolled Oat Slice.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1 cup Desiccated Coconut
  • 1 cup Self Raising Wholemeal Flour (I didn’t have any so used standard self raising flour and it was fine.)
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar lightly packed
  • 125 grams butter
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 1 tablespoon boiling water
  • 0.5 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to a low-med temperature (approx 160).
  2. Mix together all the dry ingredients – rolled oats, coconut, flour and sugar. If you are doubling the mixture then you need to use a large bowl.
  3. Chop butter and melt butter with golden syrup on a low heat.
  4. Add bicarbonate of soda to boiling water and stir.
  5. Add this liquid to the melted butter and mix.
  6. Pour butter mixture into the dry ingredients and combine well.
  7. Press firmly into a lined baking tray.
  8. Cook for 15 – 20 minutes, until golden on top.
  9. Allow slice to sit for 10 minutes before removing from tray and placing on cooling rack.
  10. Allow the slice to cool for at least another 15 minutes before cutting up into fingers.

    Thursday nights dinner sounds good – what time do you want us over?? LOL!

      The great thing about that type of dinner, is it is perfect to feed lots of people and you can always stretch it if you have friends or family who just pop in.

    I make a very similar slice that goes gangbusters around here. I make a double batch, wrap individual portions in alfoil and then into a bag to freeze. Pop one into the lunchbox and oh look, mum bakes fresh every week!! x
