I make muesli slice a lot, and I'm constantly on the look out for a tasty recipe. What I like about it is that you can subsitute lots of different dried fruits and seeds. And if you aren't packing for a school lunch box, you can add in almonds or other nuts. I tried this one out the other week and I think it's a pretty good one. See for yourself.
115g butter, plus extra for greasing
100g light brown sugar
115g golden syrup or runny honey
300g rolled oats
100g raisins (or other dried fruit)
50g sunflower seeds, linseeds, sesame seeds (choc chips for fun)
1. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees and grease a lamington tin (30x23x4cm).
2. Melt the butter, sugar and syrup (or honey) in a saucepan over a low heat.
3. Put the rolled oats, raisins and seeds in a large mixing bowl. Then pour in the melted ingredients and use a wooden spoon to combine them.
4. Spread the mixture in the baking tin. You can use a potato masher to press the mixture down.
5. Bake for 20-30 minutes. Keep an eye on it at the end to make sure it doesn't brown up too quickly.
6. When it's baked, leave the slice to cool slightly then cut into pieces and put in an airtight container.
Put the cut up slices in a container in the freezer. In the morning when you pack lunches, grab a slice and pop it in your lunch box. By the time recess comes around the muesli slice will be perfectly defrosted.
