Because sometimes you just can't beat a homemade treat.
(Sticky) Date and Coconut Slice
a.k.a. a mish-mash recipe adapted from several other recipes.
225g muesli (I used an un-sweetened one as this is sweet enough)
25g dessicated coconut, although you could add more depending on your taste
100g chopped dates
1tbsp golden syrup
100g golden caster sugar
Weigh out/prepare the dry ingredients in to a large mixing bowl. Pre-heat the oven to 180*c (slightly lower for a fan oven) and grease a 20cm square baking tray (or two smaller round ones)
Melt the butter, sugar and syrup together until you have a smooth liquid. Tip this in to the dry ingredients and stir well until everything is coated.
Squash down in to the baking tray and place in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes then cut round the edges of the slice (to prevent sticking) and score the slice in to portions (mine made 9 generous bars)
Allow to cool completley, slice and enjoy.
A word to the wise...this is sticky due to the dates...and a bit prone to crumbling. Be prepared for delicious mess!
