Recipe Request #2

This is another one of my recipes that I whip up reguarly, although this one is not loved by my kids.

It's a modified version of the the Smart Slice in this Destitute Gourmet cookbook

It's low-fat, low in sugar and relatively simple. And again, has never gone wrong.

Melt in a saucepan on low:
4 1/2 Tbsp margerine/spread
1/2 Tbsp golden syrup
1/3 cup castor sugar

In a bowl mix together:
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
1 1/2 cups coconut
5 Weetbix or similar brand, crushed
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup of chopped dates

Pour melted mixture over dry ingredients and stir

Mix in 1 egg
and 1/3 cup boiling water

Let cool slightly and mix in 1/2 to 3/4 cup choc chips

Press into greased slice tin and bake at 180 degrees for 20-30 mins or until golden

You can also use walnuts, apricots, raisens in half cup quantities, and ice the top when cooked and cooled with choc or lemon icing

Funny that my kids also won't eat that one but so many mums tell me about how their kids scoff up their weetbix slices - : )
