A yummy, crunchy slice with (surprisingly) as much flavour as traditional slices high in butter and sugar. This was originally a recipe in Too Good To Be True but I've made changes to remove all butter and further reduce the amount of sugar used. Also low GI.

Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 12 tablespoons apple juice concentrate (this can be found in health food stores)
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon shredded coconut
  • 12 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 34 cup chopped dried apricot, and
  • dates (It's just a mixture of the two, so you can have a larger portion of apricots to dates, or vice versa)
  • 13 cup rolled oats
  • 3 cups Special K cereal (you could also use Sultana Bran for something different, or just use plain rice flakes)
  • 34 cup whole meal flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Directions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl beat the egg white, apple juice concentrate and sugar using an electric mixer. Add the honey and oil to the mixture and beat for 2 minutes.
  2. With a wooden spoon stir in the coconut, cinnamon, apricots and dates, oats, rice flakes, flour and baking powder. Mix well.
  3. Pour mixture into a lined slice tin and press down firmly with a metal spoon dipped in hot water.
  4. Bake in a moderate to hot oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden and brown. Allow to cool before cutting.
