Oat and carrot slice

all details

This slice is a cross between a carrot cake and a muesli bar. They’re full of fibre and the goodness of carrot and apple. They are perfect as lunch box treats and can be frozen, wrapped individually in cling wrap.

Ingredients

2 cups rolled oats

1 cup plain white or wholemeal flour

1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

1/2 cup moist shredded coconut

1 cup sultanas or other dried fruit

1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda

1 tsp nutmeg

2 tsp cinnamon

3 eggs

1 cup neutral flavoured oil (such as rice bran or canola oil)

1 cup grated carrot (about 4 medium carrots)

1 cup grated apple (about 2 small apples)

1/2 cup plain yoghurt

1/2 cup icing sugar

Method

Preheat an oven to 170°C. Line a 20cm x 30cm baking sheet with baking paper.

Place the oats, flour, brown sugar, coconut, sultanas, bicarbonate soda, nutmeg and cinnamon into a large mixing bowl and stir together with a wooden spoon until completely combined.

In a small jug, whisk together the eggs and oil until emulsified.

Combine the egg and oil with the dry mixture along with the grated carrot and grated apple. Stir to combine.

Pour the mixture into the prepared baking sheet, flattening the top with a spatula. Bake for 30 minutes.

Remove from the oven to cool.

Meanwhile make the glaze by combining 1/2 cup plain yoghurt with 1/2 cup icing sugar. Drizzle all over the top of the cooled slice.

Slice into bar shapes and serve.

    While there may be a lot of fibre in that, it is PACKED with sugar - might as well give them a coke to go with it. Not only 1 cup of brown rice, but a cup of dried fruit too. Maybe a better alternative is to use honey or dates for extra sweetness.

    My family and I LOVE this slice - given that it makes up the size of a slab cake, I'm not concerned about the sugar. It isn't at all overly sweet and has wholesome ingredients that work very well together. I pop this frozen into hubby's and kid's lunch packs and it sure beats a processed snack of any kind. I do tend to add 1 tsp of ground clove just because we like it; so easy to make. Perfect with a cup of tea - highly recommended! Thanks for the recipe :)
