Recipe: Wheat & dairy-free energy slice

Ingredients

  • 120g (3 cups) rice and oatbran bubbles (Lowan Whole Foods brand)
  • 200g finely chopped mixed dried fruit of choice (like sultanas, peaches, apples and apricots)
  • 100g (1/2 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar
  • 55g (1/3 cup) rice flour
  • 35g (1/3 cup) desiccated coconut
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Line the base and sides of an 18 x 28cm slab pan with baking paper.
  2. Combine rice and oatbran bubbles, dried fruit, sugar, flour and coconut in a bowl.
  3. Place the oil and eggs in a jug and use a whisk to combine. Add to dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until well combined.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the lined pan and use the back of a metal spoon to press firmly into edges. Bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until puffed and golden.
  5. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. Cut into portions to serve.

Notes

  1. This slice is ideal for sustaining energy throughout the day – in the school lunch box or for an afternoon tea treat. Keep for up to 3 days in an airtight container (it will soften slightly).
