Simple Oat and Coconut Slice

Simple Oat and Coconut Slice Birdseye

– Just 5 Ingredients!

This Simple Oat and Coconut Slice is from my childhood.  It is something my mother would make on a weekend probably in the hope we could take it school for morning tea, but it rarely lasted that long.  It is the same in my family.  I had to photograph the slice quickly after I made it because it was already half gone once I had turned my back for a short time.

And The Good News Is….

Look, this slice has benefits but it does include sugar.  That’s ok I think to include every once -in-a-while (everything in moderation).  The serves are quite small so it is easy just to dabble in it.  The fact that it includes oats is wonderful because oats are a superfood – full of fibre and wonderful for lowering blood sugar, for weight loss and combating heart disease.  Have a look at what the people at Healthline say about oats. And the coconut, it tastes beautiful and is believed to be high in antioxidants and is also good for managing blood sugar levels.

Egg Free (Apologies to Milly and Molly)

This slice is egg free.  Don’t get me wrong, I am by no means opposed to eggs. Milly and Molly would never allow me to let go of eggs.  I love eggs but this is a slice that doesn’t require them so is perfect if you don’t have any eggs on hand or if you simply can’t include them in your diet. So it is a very simple slice for which you probably already have the ingredients in your pantry.
