Energy Slices

We decided to cook as Big Seed keeps asking for Fig Roll biscuits while he is
gardening all the time so I saw this recipe for Energy Slices.
We can all do with some of those!

Recipe comes from  We Love Food book
which has quick and simple seasonal ideas for us gardeners.

Big Seed weighed everything into bowls.
He then investigated each bowl for texture...which is why there are handprints on everything!
The recipe is measured in cups which is great for Big Seed.

150g butter
1 tbs honey
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup sultanas ( we didn't have these, used raisins)
1/2 cup wholemeal self raising flour
1/2 cup raw or soft brown sugar
1/2 cup dessicated coconut

If we are in the mood for cooking and we don't have the exact ingredients,
we just go with what we do have. 

Put the oven to 180 oC.
Grease a 16x26 cm slice tin.

Big Seed put the butter and honey in the saucepan and I stirred it.
This took 2-3 minutes.

Big Seed emptied all the ingredients from the bowls into a mixing bowl and stirred it up.

I added the butter and honey mixture and Big Seed mixed this in.

Spread evenly over the base of the tin.
We don't have a tin the required size so we put our mixture in half a tin.

Now the recipe says bake for 30 mins or until golden brown. 
which I think is way too long.
Bake for 15 mins then keep a close eye on it.
I had to deal with my baby so I couldn't keep watching it, so I put the timer on for 30 mins and checked it at 25. This was too long for perfection.

Cool in the tin and cut into slices.
The book says they will keep in an airtight container for a week
but they won't last that long in our house!
