Levi and Tilly returned to school this morning. Both of them are very happy with their classes and their teachers and I expect it will be another good year. I’m really enjoying reading everyone’s sandwich filling ideas and I’ll have to add them to the lunch box page ideas for easy reference.
This Lunch Box Slice is just like an Anzac biscuit but in the form of a slice. So it is actually easier and quicker because there is no rolling of dough to form cookies. Even someone who doesn’t bake could easily throw this one together. Melt the butter and honey/golden syrup and then stir into the remaining ingredients.
I have occasionally thrown in a handful of chopped dried apricots, sultanas or choc chips with great success. Dried apricots and white choc chips are nice. A handful of chopped nuts would go well too. But as is it makes a great slice for the lunch box. Full of rolled oats to give the kids energy.
lunch box slice
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup caster sugar
1 cup dessicated coconut
1 cup self-raising flour
1 teaspoon honey or golden syrup
Preheat the oven to 150 degrees C. Line a 20 x 30cm baking tin.
In a large bowl combine the oats, sugar, coconut and flour. In a small saucepan melt the butter and honey/golden syrup slowly then tip into the dry ingredients. Add the egg and mix everything until combined.
Press into the prepared tin and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked.
