A versatile muesli bar slice made with oats, dried fruit and chocolate. Great for school lunches.
This Oaty Muesli Bar Slice is a cross between a traditional chewy muesli bar and a soft fluffy cake. I know, it sounds delicious right?
Made from mainly pantry staples, this slice is so easy to make. Feel free to use the recipe as a guide and use your favourite combination of dried fruit and chocolate.
How to make Oaty muesli slice:
To begin, preheat the oven to 170°C fanbake. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, rolled oats, coconut, brown sugar, chocolate and dried fruit. Melt together butter and honey, then pour into the bowl with the whisked eggs.
Mix everything together and spread into a lined baking tray. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and cooked through.
Allow to cool before cutting into squares. Dust with icing sugar if desired and serve. Once cooled completely, store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
