Slices, biscuits, cakes, muffins all staple lunchbox fillers I find myself regularly making and freezing for the week ahead. I also find myself experimenting with different combinations and using up things that need to be eaten (like the 5 small apples that were past being ok to eat, but still good for cooking with). This is how the apple and oat slice was created and then enjoyed during the coming week.
The combination of the sweet apples and hearty oats make it a perfect morning tea snack.
5 Small Red Apples, grated
1 Cup Rolled Oats
3/4 Cup Self Raising Flour
1 Cup Plain Flour
1/4 Cup Raw Sugar
1 Tsp Cinnamon
100ml Olive Oil
LETS PUT IT ALL TOGETHER
1. I grated the apples using my food processor to save time, but a hand grater will work just as well. Place the grated apples and all dry ingredients into a medium bowl. Mix well to combine.
2. In a smaller bowl or jug whisk together the olive oil and eggs then pour into the dry ingredients, mix well to combine.
3. Pour into a lined square baking dish, level off and place into a preheated 180 degree celcius oven for 25 minutes, or until lightly golden and it bounces back when touched.
Cut into slices – I cut mine into 16 slices.
Store in the fridge for up to 7 days in an air tight container.
Freezer friendly: place slices into zip lock bags and freeze for up to three months.
TIP: Try swapping some of the grated apple with grated carrot.
