Yoghurt Slice Recipe
August 20, 2012
This recipe was created for the Sweet Adventure Blog Hop – Berry Theme. I participate each month in this theme-based dessert link up. It gets my creative juices flowing! I love reading through the creative recipes that are linked up each month , and I enjoy oooohhing and aaaahhing over the beautifully photographed food. This month’s host is Christina fromThe Hungry Australian . Christina’s blog is one of my favourite blogs to visit.
This month theme is Berries and I have to admit that I struggled with it….
Blueberries and Raspberries of the frozen kind are not grown in Australia – I can’t bring myself to buy them…
The local grown variety of blueberries and raspberries are really expensive and if my children spot them in the shopping basket at the fruit store they would be gone before we exited the building! That left locally grown strawberries (and I did manage to collect a punnet of locally grown raspberries that were on sale and hidden in the bottom of the shopping basket).
I had an idea for a berry based recipe that I did make, and it was fabulous . The problem was that it all needed to be eaten in a day. It went soft due to all of the berries through it. When it went soft it lost the textural appeal.
That led me to this recipe:
A variation on my Muesli Bar recipe that I contributed to Childhood 101 as part of my monthly guest post.
It is a healthy slice, packed full of lovely ingredients – many of which I tried for the first time in this recipe.
This recipe is easy to modify to your own tastes and what you have available. I used home made yoghurt for this recipe. Don’t be put off – it looks like the recipe below is long but each stage is very quick and easy to complete.
Pack this healthy snack into the kids (or your) lunch box.
* Note: Drain the yoghurt prior to starting this recipe.
*I make my own yoghurt so these steps are based on using that. I have not attempted it with store purchased yoghurt.
* Wait to make this until the slice has cooked and cooled
*Find Coconut oil, muscovado sugar and puffed quinoa at an organic grocer or health store
