This Chocolate Chip Oat Bar Slice Is Perfect For Busy Parents

My eldest son has just started his first year at our local school. In the lead up, we organised lots of things – uniform, school shoes, bag and his lunchbox.

He had a few requirements when it came to choosing his lunchbox. First, it had to be blue. Secondly, it had to have a drink bottle. And third, it had to have lots of compartments. We found a suitable one at a local department store. It was perfect – especially as one of his friends had the same lunchbox.

Every morning, he likes to inspect his lunchbox before he heads off to school – just to see what treats I have included for the day’s breaks.

This chocolate chip oat bar slice is a perfect lunchbox treat. The oats contain a slow releasing energy which means they will keep you feeling fuller for longer. They are also perfect for busy parents, because they are simply a one bowl slice which takes no time to mix together. You gotta love that!

A Heavenly Dense And Tangy Glazed Lime Slice That’s Easy To Make

We recently had a family day out and went fruit picking at a local farm. After I directed us the wrong way (oops!) we finally made it to the fruit farm. Mandarins, lemons and limes were ready to be picked. We collected our buckets, had a sneaky taste test whilst picking them, then filled them with lovely juicy mandarins, lemons and limes.

This lime slice is dense and tangy – just delicious. It’s also pretty easy to make, as there’s no need for electric mixers at all. Simply stir it all together.

I’ve only recently gotten into dutch cocoa. Soo delicious and it just takes your chocolate cakes to a whole new level. Hmmmm…. brownies!

Scrumptious Mulberry and Almond Slice That’s Sugar Free

It’s that time of year again – Mulberry time! And what better way to try them out than by cooking them up in a slice recipe!

Yet again my Mum’s Mulberry tree is heavily laden with the rich black berries. The tree is huge, and people from all over her neighbourhood come to taste test. They eat them straight from the tree, and also fill up small containers with the mulberries to take home to enjoy. I’ve been lucky enough to share the picking experience with my 2 boys this year – Red hand alert! My youngest also had a bright red mouth to match his hands 🙂

My mum likes to make lots and lots of Mulberry Pies and Mulberry Jam. I’ve decided to try to make some slices with my mulberries. This slice recipe contains no sugar… (more…)
