Fruit and Nut Slice

A healthy nut slice packed with fibre and protein.  Great for those times when you need a sweet fix but it contains no processed sugar or artifical sweetener deriving it's sweetness from fruit and honey.

Ingredients

1 cup of chopped medjool dates (or any organic dried fruit mix of your choice)

2 cups of natural non-toasted muesli mix (I like Goodies & Grains)

1 cup of wholemeal/spelt or similar flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 free range eggs

½ a cup of natural unfiltered honey

1 cup of chopped nuts macadamias, walnuts, almonds, pecans

I cup of organic plain Greek yoghurt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 scoops Protein Plus (optional)

Prep

Pre heat oven to 140c.  Place all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.  Beat eggs and yoghurt at room temperature together gently until mixed into a creamy mixture slightly warm honey then add to egg mixture and add vanilla extract.

 

Mix dry and wet ingredients together to form a sticky dough like mixture just slightly on soft side (you may need to add a little extra yoghurt if mixture is too dry).  Place in a non stick pan or shallow baking tray.

Cover with grease proof paper and bake for 20 minutes approx then remove paper and continue to cook for 10 minutes more remove from oven and place a sharp skewer into centre of slice if it comes out clean the slice is cooked.

 

Leave to cool in the tray for 15 minutes then carefully tip out of tin onto a wire rack cooling tray and leave to completely cool before cutting into thick slices.

 

Keeps in an airtight container for approximately 7 days (longer if kept in fridge or freezer).
