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 www.taste.com.au 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?)
