Weetabix Slice

I made some of this quick tummy filling snack today as my daughters seem to be hungry all the time at the moment.  It is useful in school luncboxes too or as an after school snack.  You can use whatever dried fruit, nuts or seeds that you have in your cupboards.  You can leave out the nuts if you wish, sometimes I substitute 1/4 cup of chocolate chips instead of seeds or nuts as a surprise treat.

2 crushed Weetabix

½ cup brown sugar

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup wholemeal flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

250ml 1 cup milk

1 cup dried fruit, e.g. raisins, roughly chopped dried apricots

1 cup seeds or chopped nuts, e.g. pumpkin, sunflower, walnuts

Mix all the ingredients together until well combined.  Press into a 18x28cm swiss roll tin. Bake at 180ÂșC for 25-30 minutes or until it's firm to the touch.  Remove from  the oven and leave to cool in the tin.  Cut into squares when cold.  Makes 24 pieces.
