Jotted the recipe down while in a waiting-room browsing a magazine.  How often do we see something that mmmmm ... sounds tasty, and start rummaging around in our handbag then for paper and pen. 


Thought today I'd try it out, and while I'm typing this up am sipping on the green-tea and enjoying some of the slice.  

It started out like this ...


Fruit and Nut Slice

1 cup oats
1 cup plain flour

** 1/2 cup each of the following: **
desiccated coconut
 castor sugar
macadamia nuts. or walnuts (I used blend of pepitas, sunflower seeds, walnuts)
sultanas
cranberries
white chocolate bits

175 grams butter (melted), with 1/3rd cup golden syrup

Grease and line with baking paper a 19 x 30 cm lamington tray.  Press mixture into tray and bake at 200 deg. celcius for 15 - 20 mins. or until golden.

Cool in tin before slicing.

Carole, I made these today and it was good!! I used 150 gram of butter instead of the 175 mentioned in your recipe. This recipe is similar to the muesli cookies you've posted before. I love these type of cookies. Thanks for posting the recipe!!
