Healthier Chocolate Weetbix & Coconut Slice
Updated: Apr 16, 2020
Makes 16 Slices
Being home means being with my mum which means lots of baked goods (i'm currently eating her carrot cake smothered in lemon, cream cheese icing). I'm steadily getting through this lockdown by shovelling sugar in my face and I don't want to be alone in that endeavour so please make this...
I'm running out of things to talk about because I have nothing to do except eat. So please enjoy a slightly less sweet (but still plenty sweet) traybake from the mind of Kim Lane.
You can just melt some coconut rough chocolate or plain chocolate melts and spread it on top of the slice if you don't want to make your own icing
Add some crushed nuts for more texture or chocolate chips for more sweetness
4 Weetbix, crushed
1/2 cup of desiccated or long-thread coconut
1/2 cup of plain flour
1/2 cup of wholemeal flour
1/2 cup of rolled oats
1/3 cup of brown sugar
3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
100grams of butter, melted
1/4 cup of coconut milk
1.5 cups of icing sugar
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
50g of softened butter
2 tablespoons of hot water
Preheat your oven to 180℃ (356℉)
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl and combine well
Pour in your melted butter and stir together until completely combined
Whisk your egg and milk together and stir into your other ingredients
Press the mixture into a baking tray lined with baking paper
Bake for 15-20 minutes
Whilst your slice is baking you can start to make the icing. Mix icing sugar and coco powder together.
Stir your butter in using a knife. Slowly pour your hot water in whilst vigorously whisking (sometimes the butter can curdle). The more water you pour in, the thinner your icing will be.
Once your Weetbix slice is out of the oven and cooled, spread over your icing. Let cool in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.
