This muesli slice recipe was a staple of our lunch boxes growing up. Every week Mum would make a batch of this slice (and a chocolate cake too if we were lucky) for our morning snacks. Being young and naive, I used to resent having ‘homemade’ snacks and wished I was sitting down to a bag of chips or bbq shapes like some of the other kids in the play ground. However with the benefit of hindsight, I can see how Mum did us a huge favour and instilled a few important qualities in both my sister and I (maybe me more so than my sister who hates cooking and swings by Mum’s a few nights a week for dinner) by not succumbing to our whinging and complaining for bought snack food.
This recipe is a regular in our house as it’s a filling snack for both myself and the boys. I never seem to make this recipe the same way twice, and instead I like to use ingredients already opened and in the pantry. Both of the boys also love to help me out with this one, and of we inevitably end up with a fight over who gets to mix the ingredients together and lick the bowl.
Do you make any of recipes from your childhood?
