Milo Muesli Slice

This slice is so good it's full of nuts, seeds and sweetened with some honey and milo. It's perfect for lunch boxes and is so easy and versatile you can add what ever nuts or seeds you fancy. The recipe calls for cashew nuts but I only had almonds and they turned out great. Give it a go, I'd love to hear what variations you come up with. Dried fruit would also be a yummy addition.

Milo Muesli Slice

1 cup desiccated coconut 
1 cup rolled oats 
1 cup cashew nut pieces 
1 cup sunflower seeds 
1 cup milk chocolate drops
½ cup sesame seeds 
½ cup pumpkin seeds 
½ cup liquid honey 
¾ cup Milo powder 
¼ cup raw sugar 
125g butter

Preheat oven to 180°C.  Line the base of a large slice tin (30cm x 25cm).  Combine the coconut, rolled oats, cashew nuts, seeds and Milo in a large bowl.

Place the honey, raw sugar and butter in a small saucepan and, stirring constantly, bring to the boil.  Continue to stir and simmer the mixture for 5 minutes.  Add the dry ingredients and mix well.

Press the mixture evenly into the tin.  Bake for 18 – 20 minutes, until the top is golden brown. Take slice out of the oven and sprinkle the milk chocolate drops on top then pop it back in the oven for 2mins, take the slice back out of the oven and spread the melted chocolate drops over the slice or you can melt chocolate in the microwave then drizzle over the top, but I find it much easier doing it in the oven and saves on dishes. Cool slice in tin then cut into bars and store in an airtight container.
