Oat Slice

Oat Slice

contains gluten (gluten-free option below)



Ingredients

1 cup oats
½ cup sugar

1 cup self-raising flour
125g Nuttlex
2 tablespoons maple syrup

Method

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
2. Melt Nuttlex and maple syrup in the microwave (about 1-2 min) until all Nuttlex is melted.
3. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl then add melted Nuttlex and maple syrup
4. Mix well (so no flour is visible) and spread in a lamington tray. You might need to mix with your hands if it’s not mixing well enough will a spoon.
5. Line lamington tray with baking paper and pour/tip mixture into tray. Use your hands to push down and spread evenly (especially into corners).
6. Bake in a 180 degrees Celsius oven for 10-15mins. Don’t over bake. The slice will harden after cooling.
7. Cut into squares or bars while it’s still warm. This is really important; it’s very hard to cut once cooled. You will probably still have to cut it a bit but having the cut marks there really helps.

Modifications:
Less sweet - half the sugar, half the maple syrup

Gluten free - substitute gluten-free self-raising flour 
                     And instead of oats:
  • Jane suggests: 1/2 cup rice flakes and 1/2 cup buckwheat puffs. 
  • Sue suggests: 1/2 cup millet flakes and 1/2 cup quinoa flakes. 
Thanks to both these ladies for these suggestions - they report these have worked out well.
