Country Slice Breakfast Bars

INGREDIENTS:

  • 45g oatbran
  • ½ tablespoon sweetener
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon 0% fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon ground all spice
  • 1 teaspoon ground mixed spice
  • 18g Mixed dried fruit
  • ½ cup strong brewed black tea, allowed to go cold
  • 1 teaspoon soft brown sugar

METHOD:

  1. Soak the fruit in the cold tea for a minimum of 1 hour (this is optional and just to rehydrate the fruit, I usually soak mine over night ready for the morning).
  2. Preheat oven 180°C.
  3. Add the dry ingredients apart from the brown sugar to a bowl and give a quick mix.
  4. In a bowl whisk the egg and vanilla until pale, add the yogurt and mix together.
  5. Stir the egg mixture into the dry ingredients until well combined.
  6. Drain the fruit from the tea and tip the fruit in the oat mixture and mix well.
  7. Leave to soak for a few minutes.
  8. Pour your mixture into your desired dish.
  9. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the top and bake in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes.

NOTES:

  • These can be enjoyed hot or cold, simply slice and enjoy.
  • You can make them ahead and store in an airtight container, these should last up to 3 days so ideal for batch cooking for days you want to grab and go.
