Muesli slice

I love this muesli slice. Of course there is still a reasonable amount of sugar in it but it has a lot of amazing ingredients too that is far better than eating store bought junk full of palm oil.
Course Slice

Ingredients
  

  • 300 gm rolled oats 3 cups
  • 120 gm sunflower seeds 1 cup
  • 30 gm poppyseeds 1/4 cup
  • 30 gm sesame seeds or linseeds, 1/4 cup
  • 100 gm pepitas 1 cup

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 175 gm butter chopped
  • 150 gm honey
  • 200 gm demarera or raw sugar - 1cup

Instructions
 

  • You will need to set the oven to 170 C or 340 F. This fits into a 18 cm x 25 cm square tin / 7 X 10 Inch tin. Pick a smaller rather than bigger tin or the slice will be too thin. Line it with baking paper.
  • All cups in this recipe are Australian sizes

Amount: 1 cup Australian (cup) in volume Equals: 1.06 cups US (cup)

  • Mix the first 8 ingredients together in a bowl combining well.
  • Put the butter, sugar and honey into a saucepan and heat gently until completely melted. Let this boil for 1 minute.
  • Pour the sugar onto the oat mixture, stirring with a spoon or spatula and mix until all of the dry ingredients are coated.
  • Pour into the tray and spread out, pressing down with damp figertips
  • Put into the oven and bake until golden approximately 30 minutes. Cool completely, before removing from the tray. The edges will be a bit browner than the middle.
  • Cool completely then cut into fingers
  • Dont over colour the sugar mix, by boiling too long. Work quickly to stir the sugar into the oats , or the mixture will start to set. The slice is often easiest to cut when it has been refrigerated
  • You can use any kinds of seeds or fruits in the approximate amounts above .
