Oat slice

This is our recipe for DIY or copy One Square Meals. You know those delicious apricot and honey ones? SO tasty but so expensive.

The best part is they are super easy to make and you can leave out the bits you don’t like and add in the bits you do! We don’t use a recipe when we make these (best for kids helping!), so this is the best approximation of what we do….

2C oats
1/2C flour or another 1/2C oats if you are GF
150g melted butter or coconut oil
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2C honey or brown sugar
One pack of dried apricots or as many as you like
1/2 raisins or sultanas or other
1 small pack of sunflower seeds.

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and line a 20cm square pan with baking paper.

Mix oats, butter, eggs, honey, vanilla and optional flour in the food processor or by hand if you don’t have one. Food processor makes it all stick together a bit better I find but works just as well either way.
Mix in apricots, raisins, seeds and any other mix ins you want (chocolate is always good!).

Press into pan with your hands or a flat bottomed cup. Press it in really firmly.

Bake in the oven for 15-20 mins until lightly golden. Cool in pan and slice into squares or whatever shape takes your fancy x
