There are pantry staples. Then there are staples. Believe me – there is a difference!
Just like milk is to our cereal and spinach is to our salad, honey oat bars are a pantry staple that are always trying to sneak their way into the nearest biscuit tin, not waiting long to get gobbled up. (seriously, my sister and I could eat a whole tray of these in 1 sitting!)
You can use them to stir through your yoghurt, sprinkle on your ice-cream, and even make granola out of them by sprinkling the mixture over a baking tray and baking until nice and crispy!
The possibilities are diverse. endless. and delicious.
Another fab thing about this recipe is it is sooooooo quick and easy – think wet dry combine! (then eat mixture :P)
Did I mention they’re healthy?! (If you’re definition of healthy involves dry fruit, oats + whole-meal flour) Where you can always reduce the butter content for a more crumbly texture rather than gooey
Yes my friends… truly a win win win situation!
(the 3 wins standing for yummy, quick & easy, and healthy of course :P)
Get excited, because I know I am!
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup sultanas (or any other dried fruit you like! e.g. apricots)
1/2 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
1/2 cup raw sugar
1/2 cup coconut
1 heaped tablespoon honey
1. Preheat oven to 180C.
2. Combine oats, sultanas, sifted flour , sugar and coconut in a bowl.
3. Melt butter and honey, then mix into dry ingredients until combined
4. Press evenly over base of well greased 28 cm x 17cm lamington tin.
5. Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden. Leave to cool in tray then remove and cut into deliciously large squares
I can almost smell that freshly baked honey oatey goodness wafting throughout the house….
What’s your favourite pantry staple? or should I say stand-by baked snack?
Hope you all had a simply fabulous weekend!
