Morning tea.

This slice has become a favourite morning tea for myself and my non-veg hubby. 
I found the original recipe at WhyVeg.com and the first time I made it I did it to their directions, the second time I made it, however, I did some minor tweaking and came up with something that, personally, I liked more.
I love this as a mid-morning snack, especially during a busy working day. I'll have some with chocolate soy milk, and being full of protein and fibre I find I can easily make it through to my consistently, unfairly, late lunches! 
Plus, it satisfies my ridiculously sweet tooth! Oh, oh, it's also healthy :)
Oatmeal Slice

  • ¾ cup organic sultanas
  • ½ cup wholemeal flour
  • ½ tsp bicarb soda
  • ¼ tsp/good pinch salt
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup rolled oats, plus some extra for sprinkling
  • ½ cup silken tofu
  • substitute for 1 egg
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar/coconut palm sugar/rapadura/muscovado
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup/agave syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • Walnuts or choc-chips (optional) could also be added, but I don’t think they are needed
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray, or line it.
  2. Soak sultanas in boiling water and set aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. In a bowl, combine flour, bicarb soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and oats.
  4. Drain sultanas and set aside.
  5. Blend tofu in a food processer until smooth.  
  6. Add prepared egg substitute, oil, sugar, maple/agave syrup and vanilla. Process until mixture is smooth. Stop and scrape down the sides with rubber spatula, process until well combined.
  7. Add flour mixture, sultanas and (optional) walnuts/choc-chips to the food processor. Pulse on/off until all the ingredients mixed.
  8. Turn the mixture into the dish and spread into an even layer.
  9. Sprinkle the top with some extra rolled oats.
  10. Bake until light golden and firm to the touch, approx 30-35 minutes.
  11. When done, remove from oven and cool in the pan. Cut into bars.
Bars can be kept in an airtight container for up to 5 days or in the freezer for many months.
