Choc Chip Oat Slice

A protein-filled snack perfect for lunchboxes

Choc chip oat slice

This Choc Chip Oat Slice is a great alternative to those highly processed muesli bar options found on the shelves of the supermarket.

Not only is it a simple recipe to bake (even the kids can do it), it's also nutritious thanks to the inclusion of the seeds, oats and eggs. It's also nut-free, so ideal for those with nut allergies and school lunch boxes. You can freeze these or store them in an airtight container. Just a warning though, they won't last long on your kitchen bench!

Experiment with the ingredients in this Choc Chip Oat Slice. Play with what seeds you have in the pantry. If you don’t have sesame seeds swap them for hemp seeds or more flaxseeds. Replace the choc chips for blueberries or sultanas for a fruity burst! The recipe is versatile enough for you to tweak as required.
