Birdseed Slice

I love that almost everyone in my extended family are great cooks. We're definitely a bit of a foodie family! Family get-togethers are always a feast of tasty goodies. 

This Christmas was a highlight - Uncle Jeff's stuffing roll and super fluffy roast potatoes, Auntie Heather's stuffed zucchini flowers, Thomaz's roast duck, Mum's plum pudding, cousin Jaclyn's pavlova and lots of other delicious things. Mmm!!

This is a super simple and tasty slice, slightly adapted from my Auntie Heather's recipe. It's an ideal alternative to bought muesli bars for school lunches.

Birdseed Slice

125g butter
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup desiccated coconut
1/4 cup wholemeal flour
1/4 cup oat bran or wheat germ
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/3 cup sunflower kernels
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup dried fruit (sultanas, apricots, figs or dates)

Melt butter, honey and brown sugar and bring to the boil. Simmer for 2 minutes. Stir into the dry ingredients.
Press mixture into a greased slice tray and bake in a moderate oven for approx 15 minutes until golden.
Allow to cool completely then cut into squares.
