Fi’s Famous Oat Slice (Vegan/Vegetarian option)

OAt Slice

Fi’s Famous Oat Slice slice can be served as a traditional slice or chopped in muesli bar size pieces for active kids and athletes. Portion size should be controlled (a tray should make about 40 pieces!) for those trying to lose weight or control intake!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup pitted dates (chopped) (if you can get the red Chinese dates they are lovely!)
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 1-2 teaspoons cinnamon (as much as you like!)
  • 1/2 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut or olive oil spread
  • 125g butter (melted)
  • 1/3 cup of honey or maple syrup

 

Optional additions! (for those with higher energy requirements)

  • 1/2 cup dark choc chips
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds or walnuts
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots
  • Swap dates for sultanas

 

Or anything else you like…. This recipe is one I have made up and tinkered with over about ten years. It is very robust and I make it about twice a week and it’s always a hit!

 

Method

  1. Grease and line a baking tray (about 23cm) preheat oven to 180C
  2. Add dry ingredients and mix, add dates and mix thoroughly.
  3. Make a well in the middle and add honey and melted butter and combine well.
  4. Spoon onto tray and use the back of a dessert spoon to press down.
  5. Bake at 180C fan forced for about 20-22 mins.
  6. Allow to cool before taking from tray and slicing into small pieces.
