After a couple hours of buggying, it's good to have a break...stand up and stretch the legs. Take in the awesome scenery. Grab a drink and a bite to eat. And speaking of a bite to eat, have I got a recipe for you. Exclusively on Extreme Kites is my Honey Oat slice recipe!! Ok, it's not really my own invention - I've been mucking around with it for a couple of weeks, changing a few things here and there and adding a few bits to see how it would go. Anywhoo, this is yumo.
Melt: (I chuck it all in a saucepan and stick it on top of my woodheater for 20min or so).
4 tbs Honey (can substitute 1 or 2 golden syrup)
1 tsp Vanilla essence
Mix in bowl: (a big bowl!)
2 cups of rolled oats
1 cup of rice bubbles
1 1/2 cups of plain flour
3/4 cup caster suger
1 1/3 cups dessicated coconut
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup of sultanas and or currants
Add melted butter/honey/vanilla to dry ingredients and mix well.
Press ingredients into 18 x 28cm slice pan lined with baking paper. Press too hard and you'll get a pretty heavy and dense slice, too light and it will have trouble keeping together.
Pop into oven at 180C for 30 min (give or take depending on oven)
Heat up 2-3 tbs Honey and pour over slice when it comes out of oven. Cut while still hot - it will be pretty soft. Leave in pan to cool.
Store in airtight container for up to 10 days. (yeah, right, like it's gonna still be there in 10 days).
mmmmmmmmm.... forget the shop bought rubbish, this is the read deal!
