Easy Peasy Pantry Slice

It really is easy peasy!

It really is easy peasy!

I call this beauty my “easy peasy pantry” slice because everything you need will probably already be in your pantry. It is actually a weetbix slice though –┬áJust an easy peasy version!

It is so easy that my 4 year old helped make it and probably could have managed it all on his own! It is also completely delicious. I am not a big fan of powdered sugar so we made it without the icing but I put the icing ingredients and directions on for you in case you want to use it. Without icing they are still yummy but next time I may press some chocolate drops on top before baking for a bit of variety.

So here we go:

Weetbix Slice

Ingredients

~ 4 weetbix (but you could use the same amount of cereal. Mix it up a bit!)

~ 1 cup Plain flour

~ 1/2 cup dessicated Coconut

~ 1/2 cup Brown Sugar

~ 1 tablespoon Cocoa

~ 75g Unsalted Butter

~ 1/4 cup water

Icing (Optional)

~ 1 tablespoon Cocoa

~ 1 tablespoon Milk

~ 3/4 cup Icing Sugar

~ 1/4 cup Dessicated Coconut

Method

Preheat your oven to 180 Celsius.

Crush the weetbix with your hands. Melt the butter in a microwave proof ramekin for around 30 seconds until melted then pour on top of the weetbix.Mix well.

Add the flour, coconut, brown sugar, cocoa and water then mix well again.

Line a baking tray (I used a brownie tray) with baking paper and press the slice into it, right to the edges.

Bake for around 15 minutes or until its slightly brown on top. Leave to cool in the tray because it takes about an hour to set properly so if you attempt to remove it at this stage it will crumble! Also you can add the icing mixture on while its hot as the melting is what you need to spread the icing effectively.

Method (For Icing)

Sift the Cocoa and Icing Sugar, pour in the milk and mix well. It should be pretty thick. Spread the icing over the slice, using the heat to melt the icing so it spreads better. Once covered sprinkle over the dessicated coconut. Refridgerate for an hour.

Voila! Easy Peasy Weetbix slice!

Enjoy xo
