Muesli slice

This is an easy slice to bake and uses a basic muesli as its key ingredient. Yes it's sweet but you only have a small square which I guarantee you'll find really hits the spot. If you like something sweet between meals, this is a lot healthier than sweet biscuits or chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups natural untoasted muesli
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup sultanas
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 175g salt-free butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
