We pretend this is a healthy slice in our house, as it has oats and uses brown sugar. It is a simple slice, a bit of melting and mixing going on. The flavour is not too sweet, which I do love.
My kids love it to, they think it is great. I added chocolate chips to the mix, I found it needed it. You can also use roughly chopped up chocolate blocks or chocolate melts, I just snap these into smaller pieces.
With regards to the topping I go two ways with that, sometimes I just sprinkle icing sugar on top, other times I add the chocolate topping.
So if you are looking for an sweet treat, that isn't too sweet, give this a try, it is something my family loves, hope yours does to.
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup oats
1/3 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup Milo
250g unsalted butter, melted
100g choc bits
200g dark chocolate
50g unsalted butter
Sprinkle with sifted icing sugar
Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced.
Grease and line with baking paper a 20cm x 30cm slice pan.
In a large bowl add the self raising flour, plain flour, oats, coconut, brown sugar and Milo. Give it a quick stir.
Add the melted butter, egg and choc bits and stir well to combine.
Press the mixture into your prepared baking tin.
Make the chocolate topping: Place the chocolate and butter in a microwave safe bowl. Cook for 20 seconds, stir. Cook for a further 20 seconds, stir, repeat this process until both the butter and chocolate has melted. (You could also do this in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water).
Spread the chocolate topping over the cooled cake. Slice and serve.
