Wanting recipes for healthy slices

nicnacks, Jan 29, 11:23pm
Hello, I am after some recipes for healthy slices/snacks for the kid (15) and husband lunch boxes, I am very short on time and need some that are either all mix in one bowl or at the most add wet to dry type recipes?

I have been googling but my eyes are starting to bleed and I keep getting side tracked lol have about 1000 recipes now but none of what I actually wanted.

Any help is much appreciated, neither of them like muffins yes they are weird! !

Have you already tried the Birdseed bar recipe? Toasting each ingredient takes time, but some ingredients nuts/coconut you could buy already toasted. 1 cup each of sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, coconut, chopped cashews, sultanas. (nuts, seeds & coconut to be lightly toasted). Mix together with 100g butter, qtr cup honey and half cup brown sugar once brought to soft ball stage. Press into pan 2cms. Cut when nearly cold as it becomes pretty hard to slice. You can use your preferred ingredients from bulk bins, as long as they add up to 5 cups.

Thanks, have not done that one so will give it a go, have a muesli bar recipe but I think that they are getting a bit bored with that so something different might be nice.

Baked Oaty Slice... .

This is easy ...

150g butter
1 tablespoon golden syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
Melt together for 2 minutes in microwave. Stir to mix.
Add: 1. 5 C flour
1 C rolled oats
1/2 C coconut
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 C sultanas
Mix well and press into tin. Bake at 180 for 10 minutes.

In the past I have made all different versions - sometimes (well just about everytime) I add choc chips, pumpkin or sunflower seeds, or instead of rolled oats add muesli, dried cranberries, apricots... just about anything you want...
