A Slice of Wednesday


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.


I surfed for five minutes and found this recipe which was based on a wet mix I liked the sound of: natural yoghurt, eggs and a small amount of oil. 

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

2 eggs

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?)

Oh yummy! I will put this one on my list to make. I make one similar as a muesli bar for lunchboxes but just use an Anzac Biscuit recipe and add the cranberries, white choc and other goodies like pumpkin seeds and make it into a slice, so I’m keen to give this one a go! I must say I have made last weeks slice and oh my goodness! talk about devine – tastes like a picnic bar just without the caramel 🙂 I also made the strawberry jam slice, and it’s one of my favourite recipes to make now 🙂 Thankyou Fiona for your yummy foodie inspirations.

These look so yummy every week! Just curious has any one out there in the USA made any of these recipes? Just wondering what type/size of our pans did you use for the recipe?

Are those dried cranberries or fresh? and I assume that you combine the dry with the wet… or, do you layer the two with the wet going over the dry?

I’m going to make this at work (elder care home) tonight for a sweet with our Sunday afternoon tea. We have dried cranberries at work so I will experiment with those.

I love your Slice of Wednesday feature. I also adore reading your medieval posts. I plan on having a dinner in February with 3 or 4 other homeschooling families that features foods and customs of that period… I’m sure I will be mining your blog for ideas 🙂

Theyre dried cranberries, I find fresh really hard to get around here. Also, I re-read the recipe and youre right, it was unclear about the wet dry mix. Ive edited now, but yes, you just mix all together, theres no layering. I hope you like it! xx
