Linseed, oats & honey slice

Hi there.
 Now, I have to confess I am not much of a cook.
I like to bake,but I just am not really into a lot of cooking.
Something always goes wrong.
I miss or misread the measurements, or run out of a vital ingredient.
I often put the oven on the wrong setting or forget to add the butter.

Mind you, I do make a mean sponge.
That, my friends, I can do!

School holidays start today so yesterday I thought I should do a little baking.
I wanted something a little sweet and a little healthy, if you know what I mean.

So I decided to make linseed, honey and oat slice.
It ticks all the boxes for me at the moment.

It's easy peasey, melt and mix.

Here's the recipe.

Linseed, oats and honey slice.

I cup of sultanas
1 cup of rolled oats
1 to 2 tablespoons of linseed
1/2 cup raw sugar
1/2 cup wholemeal self raising flour
1/2 cup coconut
155g butter
1 tablespoon honey

Now for a little trick a friend showed me.
Tear off some baking paper to line your 28 by 18cm slice tin.
Scrunch up the paper, then spread it out in the tin. This way it fits into the tin and you don't have to cut or fold. (See, I am a lazy cook)

Now mix the linseed, oat, sultanas and flour together with the sugar and coconut.
Throw it all in one big bowl.
Melt the butter and add the honey.
Add the melted mix to the dry ingredients and stir til combined. (excellent for working on those tuckshop arms)

Bake in a moderate oven for 15 to 20 mins.
It is cooked when it looks nice and golden.
It is hard to get it to cut neatly, it's probably best to cut it while still warm then let it cool in the pan.



  1. Hi Deb,
    That sounds so yummy and easy. Maybe even I could whip up this slice. I'll give it a whirl.

  2. Did I just read you can bake sponge cake! Well brownie points to you Deb.
    I do not venture any where near a sponge recipe. Me and sponge attempts end in tears.

  3. Yummy! I will give it a try! Thanks! X

  4. I have it on paper already, and will be making it today. Thanks for a great recipe. Cant believe you say you cant cook and make a mean sponge!! They can be difficult. Love your mini bathroom makeover - the rug made a huge difference too. Have a lovely weekend.
