Elaine's Oat Slice

This recipe comes from an extremely ratty cook book I own, The Beachport pony club family favourites. 

It's from the eighties I guess, and I picked it up in reasonable condition from a garage sale eons ago. It's been well used in that time and hasn't fared well. I still make recipes from it, like this oat slice. 

To be honest, its the first time I've made this particular slice. I usually make a chocolate slice from this book, everyone loves it. With the second week of school about to begin, I got my bake on because the cupboard was bare. It had all the ingredients for this one, so I went with it.

The recipe was supplied by Elaine Marshall. It's a good'un.

Oat Slice

120 grams butter
2 cups rolled oats
1 dessertspoon golden syrup
1 small cup coconut
1 small cup sugar

Melt butter, golden syrup and sugar in a saucepan. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and pour in the melted butter mix.

Stir well until combined.

Spoon mixture into a greased and lined slice tray, and smooth out.

Bake at 170 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

Slice into squares when still warm.

I let it cool in the tin, then melted 100 grams of chocolate in the microwave. I then drizzled the melted chocolate over the top of the cut slice. 


  1. Sounds like the perfect slice for an after school snack!

  2. These look like a great way to start the week - a little nice and naughty all at the same time.

  3. Ratty old cookbooks are often the best kind. That slice looks great!

  4. Such a great and simple recipe based on the ANZAC biscuits! I too love cookbooks from country organisations and schools. Much loved recipes go into them and usually quite easy to make! Cheers, Denyse

  5. Looks delicious! My problem is I'd tell myself I'm making cakies or slices for my boys but I'm really making them for myself. Ahem.

  6. I still have my mum's first ever cookbook, must see if I can find it, that was how I learnt to bake! My kids hate oats, so I won't be trying this, but it does look lovely!

  7. This looks so good, have printed it out and hope to bake it later today! I love Anzac bikkies but they are so fiddly to make, this looks like it would be a similar taste but much easier :-)

    1. Miss 19 made them for us, burnt them a little around the edges but otherwise yummy x

  8. Going to attempt this tonight, so I have something tasty for lunch box treats tomorrow. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Yum! The Oat Slices look delicious. Thanks for a great looking recipe and for hosting another fantastic link-up!
