This slice recipe was stolen from a guy I work with (thanks Timmy) and has been changed a bit since the original, actually, to be honest, it’s different every time I make it depending on what I find to put in it. Regardless, it’s 100% better for you than the muesli bars out of a package so get on board. Now oats have been proven to help lower cholesterol due to the high amount of soluble fibre and they contain beta-glucans that help reduce the risk of heart disease. Oats are a great low GI carbohydrate that will stave off those munchies. Amaranth is a gluten free grain that is a protein powerhouse, it also contains high levels of calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and potassium.
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup puffed amaranth
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup pepitas
1/2 cup nuts (whatever you like)
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup chopped dried fruit – sulfur free apricots, dates, figs, raisins (anything really)
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup honey, warmed slightly so it’s runny
3 tbsp coconut oil
Mix all dry ingredients in bowl, pour over honey and coconut oil and combine. Press into a baking tray and bake for about 15-20 mins at around 170 degrees. Leave to cool then slice. This freezes well too.
