Peanut and Oat Slice

I needed something really simple and quick to bring to friend's place one evening. A quick searched in my "saved recipes" folder found this oat slice that I have never attempted before. It's a melt and mix recipe which makes it sooo easy to do.


I certainly like the texture of this slice as it has a crumbly taste to it. A bit like the peanut cookie that we used to eat when we were kids I added some chocolate bits as well. ;)


Peanut and Oat Slice 
1/2 cup self-raising flour
 1/2 cup plain flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup, firmly packed brown sugar
 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
80g butter
1 egg, lightly whisked

Preheat oven to 180°C.
 Line the base and 2 long sides with non-stick baking paper in a slice pan, allowing the sides to overhang.
Sift the combined flours into a bowl Add the oats, coconut and sugar and stir to combine. Make a well in the centre.
Place the peanut butter, honey and butter in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until melted and well combined. Remove from heat. Add peanut-butter mixture and egg to the flour mixture and stir until well combined.
Press the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until slice is golden brown and set. Set aside to cool completely. Cut into squares to serve.
