Hello Wednesday lets-make-a-slice day! How I love you.
Today, we're veering away from the sticky sweet condensed-milk-heavy fare of recent Wednesdays and attempting something more lunchbox friendly.
White Chocolate and Cranberry Oat Slice.
I made it up based on the fact I had white chocolate and cranberries sitting around waiting to be made into biscotti, silly ingredients. Don't ever sit around my kitchen on a Wednesday thinking you're safe. One sniff and you're in a slice.
So I made this:
White Chocolate and Cranberry Oat Slice
1 cup cranberries
100g chopped white chocolate (or choc bits would work)
¼ cup brown sugar
1 cup wholemeal flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup rolled oats
⅓ cup coconut
1 cup natural yoghurt
¼ cup vegetable oil
In a big bowl mix cranberries, chocolate, sugar, flour, baking powder, oats and coconut.
In a jug or small bowl whisk up the yoghurt (I used my plain homemade), eggs and oil.
Mix the wet mix with your dry ingredients, all together, and pour into a greased and lined slice pan (I used a 18cm x 27cm).
Sprinkle over ⅓ cup oats and ⅓ cup flaked almonds, and bake for 20 mins on 200°C.
It's not too crumbly and not too sweet with the occasional lovely hit of white chocolate. I thought this was yummy.
Hope you like it. (Back to sticky next week?)
