Sultana Oat Slice

Miss M loves sultanas. I try to ration them otherwise she would eat 'tarns' all day long. When my brother and I were little my Mum would give us a bowl of sultanas and send us out onto the back step to eat them (apparently Mum liked mess even less than I do!). Anyway, as a result of these 'bowls' of sultanas, I now loathe them!
Recently I bought a kilo packet of homebrand sultanas as our sultana budget was blowing out and low and behold Miss M has a discerning palette when it comes to sultanas! "Yuck", was her response when she was given a bowl of the slightly flattened version of 'tarns'. I tried a few more times but she was not having it. So back to the 'brand' sultanas we go.
So since I was now stuck with a kilo of sultanas I decided to use them in a recipe hoping she would eat them if they were 'disguised'. And it worked, here is my simple Sultana Oat Slice, great for kids and although it does have sultanas in it there is no extra sugar. My friends told me it tastes good too so here is the recipe!

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup sultanas
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/4 cup stevia granules (I use Natvia) (you could use 1/2 cup raw sugar)
  • 1/2 cup wholemeal self raising flour
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 125g butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons rice malt syrup (you could use honey)

Pre-heat oven 180 degrees Celsius (160 fan forced)
Line 18 x 28 cm slice tin
1. Combine oats, sultanas, coconut, stevia, flour and chia seeds in a large bowl
2. Melt butter and rice malt syrup (RMS) in saucepan
3. Pour melted butter and RMS into bowl and mix
4. Pour mixture into tin and flatten down into tin using back of spoon or hand.
5. Bake for 10-15 mins or until golden
6. Cool in tin before cutting into squares
