Apple & Raspberry Breakfast Oat Slice

This Apple & Raspberry Breakfast Oat Slice is a game changer for me. Are you like me? A part time working Mum who needs military precision, a Mum voice that scares the neighbours into putting on their shoes and brushing their teeth and the organisational skills of Martha Stewart to get your family out of the house so you can get to work on time?

Actually, even on the days where I do not have to go to work I still have to do the above to get Mr 6 to school on time. But I digress. I find from the moment I wake up to the moment I lock the door behind us it is action stations. Kid’s tantrums, lost shoes, breakfasts being eaten. That is, breakfast for everyone but me. Try as I might on days where I have to work I just cannot find the time to eat my breakfast. More often than not I am chowing down on a piece of peanut butter toast on the train.

Not only is it good for breaky, this Apple & Raspberry Breakfast Oat Slice is also great in the lunchboxes or for snacks. It is full of goodness from the oats, wholemeal flour and apple. It is also relatively low in added sugar with only 1/3 cup of honey. If you wanted to make this baby led weaning friendly you could substitute the honey for a mashed banana.

  1. I just had to say how much I laughed at the mum voice scaring the neighbours comment. Very much me my husband says. Thanks for the chuckle after a loooong day.

    Looking forward to making this tomorrow.

  2. Omg – the smell of this cooking is amazing!! Can’t wait to try it. I could have eaten it raw out of the bowl.

  3. Can you freeze this?
    Thanks

  4. Do you use fresh raspberries or frozen?

    • Hello! I used fresh in this recipe but I will substitute for frozen when they are too expensive or not available. Just defrost the raspberries first if using frozen and you may notice the colour from the raspberries runs through the baking. Happy baking, Bernadette x

  5. What a wonderfully versatile, delicious recipe. Thank you! I’ve just made it up for afternoon tea/ lunchbox (adding in chia seeds, some blueberries and 2 mashed bananas) and the kids have attacked it proclaiming it to be “the best”.

  6. Sounds amazing, need to try this one. What would happen if I left out the honey? Would it still work?

    • If you wanted you could substitute with a mashed banana – would help sweeten the bake and acts as a binding ingredient too. Bernadette x
