    oh thankyou Cathie….this is a definite for my "must try" pile….problem is I suspect I am going to love this slice!!!! & want to eat it all myself!!

  • Wow – thats a great one, with ingredients we already have in the cupboard!

    I'll try this for Greta starting morning kindy next week!xxx

  • Have just done the groceries…going to make this now – looks delish!

  • Yum! Thanks, I'll have to give that a whirl…

  • my kids are home for 2 more days but i'm going to make this now. thx!

  • I tried a wheat-free muesli slice on the weekend, one with dates and golden syrup. But it was too crumbly. This looks like it hols together well, will give it a go.

  • This is great variation. I think the idea of putting in peanut butter!

  • Yum yum. We still have another week before school returns. I'll be making these for the lunch box. Thanks Cathie!
    Have a great week.

  • hi, yes we want to homeschool….but when the kindy boy goes off to school it is nice for the toddler and i….i make this recipe with dried cranberries and sesame seeds. thanks for sharing..xx

  • Cat

    I've been looking for something like this for me. Not that there's anything wrong with chocolate cake but seriously, I'm beginning to indulge a little too much. Thanks for sharing. xo

  • i felt the early morning pain of getting up early for kinder this morning…i have been enjoying my sleep ins the last couple of weeks. i love this slice! my mum used to make one similar when i was little…….mmmm so maybe some baking this afternoon is in need of xo

  • My 'baby' graduated grade 12 over 2 years ago but I remember the joy of him returning to school each fall ~ getting back to routine! 🙂

    Your snack treat look so yummy ~ a good start for back to school!
    xo Catherine

  • Mmnn, definitely will try this one. Thanks, I am enjoying a little bit of quiet – hope you are too.

  • You are the baking guru. Anything that you can use instead of peanut butter? (our occasional care centre won't allow peanut butter through the door!)

  • Yummmo…I have a bar I make just like this…a family favourite.
    Thanks for reminding me I need to make these healthy treats xoxoo

  • Theylook delish Cathie!

  • Yum! Thanks for sharing Cathie, no little people in my world but after some time off I'm back to work and need snacks there too – perfect! x

  • Mmmmm peanut butter…I shall totally give these a whirl…sweet dreams…love rosie

  • Fantastic! Can you suggest an alternative to the peanut butter for me to use? There are kids with severe nut allergies in both school and kindy for my kids so no nuts allowed for us.

  • This looks yummy – thanks for sharing the recipe – I've been on the lookout for 'healthier' options to satisfy my sweet tooth 🙂

  • i going to make these tomorrow, i will let you know how it goes.

  • Must give this a try, looking so delicious. I prefer healthy snacks, so will try it soooooon. Lots of Love for the new week, sweet Cathie. Glad you received my little envelope all happy and healthy! xxx

  • Thanks Cathie! I always love to try a new slice recipe. xo

  • here it is another week home, but great idea…I may have to think about replacing oats with something else…Have a nice week!

  • Mmmmm, look good Cathie! will have to try it this week. Hope to see you Friday at the market 🙂

  • Perfect timing! I've been after a muesli slice lately – this looks great! I'm looking forward to trying it out.

  • these sound like the perfect work treat too 🙂

  • Yummy! I am definitely going to try this – I love the idea of putting peanut butter in it too! Thank you 🙂

  • YUM!! Yes I enjoyed time with my littlest as kinder started again today 🙂

  • Another great recipe Cathie – my kids need food like this they just don't function on bought biscuits or shortbreads. I'll been sneaking sesame and sunflower seeds into your oat slices as our school has a no nuts policy

  • Ash

  • We love slice recipes…looking forward to making these.

  • Thank you!! This looks perfect for this week's baking experiment 😉

  • These look delicious – and your photos are alwyas a pleasure. Have a wonderful day!

  • Yum- but I am afraid no nuts at Busys kindy. waht else could you put in?

  • this looks so good!! i will bring the milk, my friend.

  • Fabulous, was just about to do a search for just this sort of snack recipe! Yum.

  • Oh Cathie…hope you are having a lovely day, with each of your little cupcakes …Smile on Rosie

  • Red is cute isn't it? I am happy with the pics ♥ I am going through some major medical tests at the moment, so I am a little subdued but still very positive. I could easily have some of that fruit and nut slice with some tea right now!

  • Yummo Cathie! Always on the look out for a healthy sweet treat. Ta very muchly and hope you are having a stellar week 🙂

  • Hi Cathie,
    You found me and I found you again!
    Hard to believe you guys in the snow; we are going though a heat wave; unreal. I know my grandchildren would love these.

  • Yumm these look good – I am going to have to try them. (but will have to leave out the nuts:(

  • great recipe! The health food section of our Coles has nut free spread which would work in place of the peanut butter.

  • Just wanted to let you know that I made these yesterday – I am going to do a back to school post next week – do you mind if I link back and use a photo (did not get a chance to take a pic – they were gobbled by a friends kids and mine in 5 minutes)

  • Ooo Im glad I read all the comments, I was just thinking that I needed a nut free alternative to the peanut butter.

    Looking forward to making these up 🙂
