Nutty Milo Slice

Name of Recipe: Nutty Milo Slice

If you like muesli slice with a bit of texture then you might like this Nutty Milo Slice. I converted the recipe from one I found in a New Idea Mag. It is quite healthy, especially if you make it with Cathy's yummy homemade milo.

Ingredients:
65g raw almonds
65g unsalted macadamia nuts
65g unsalted cashews
120g organic honey
100g rapadura or organic raw sugar
120g unsalted butter (perhaps try coconut oil if you are D/F)
100g organic desiccated coconut
110g organic rolled or steel cut oats
70g sunflower seeds
80g pumpkin seeds
50g sesame seeds (I used chia seeds instead)
100g milo
100g dried fruit (I used organic sultanas and craisins)

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line a large 26 x 32cm slice tray with baking paper (ensure paper extends 2cm above edge of tray).

Add nuts to TMX and chop for 5 seconds on speed 5. Set aside.

Add honey, rapadura and butter to TMX and heat for 4 minutes at 90 degrees on speed 2.

Add all other ingredients (including nuts) and mix on reverse speed 3-4 for 20 seconds or until well combined.

Empty into prepared tray and use knuckles to press the mixture out evenly.

Bake in oven for approximately 20 minutes or until browned. Cool completely in tray. Lift from tray and cut into squares.

Enjoy!

Notes:

Consider chopping the seeds up with the nuts for a finer consistency.  My boys have decided that they don't like the "pips".

JD - the whole quantity makes a huge slice.  Thought I had macadamias but couldn't find them - used pine nuts instead, used dates, craisins and sultanas for the dried fruit and also used up my coconut oil as well. Chopped the seeds with the nuts as you suggested and used a ginger flavoured honey as well.  It was very nice and I had to stop myself from eating the 4th piece. Thanks for posting and converting this recipe Chelsea.

Mrs KK - 5/5 from us. I did what Judy said and used craisins & dates and it was yummo! Thanks for a great recipe.

Thanks Chelsea, looks great.  I have all those ingredients (albeit not organic) so this will be added to the list of things I want to make in coming days  once I get my machine back tomorrow.

I hope you like it JD.  It makes a huge tray full and could probably be halved.  I just added an extra note at the end of the recipe (just in case you already have printed it out).  :)

Made this tonight Chelsea - the whole quantity so yes it is a huge slice.  Thought I had macadamias but couldn't find them - used pine nuts instead, used dates, craisins and sultanas for the dried fruit and also used up my coconut oil as well. Chopped the seeds with the nuts as you suggested and used a ginger flavoured honey as well.  It was very nice and I had to stop myself from eating the 4th piece  :-)).  Thanks for posting and converting this recipe Chelsea.
