A recipe from the Good Food collection.


Muesli slice
Muesli slice
250 g (8 oz) unsalted butter, cubed
1 cup (250 g/8 oz) caster sugar
2 tablespoons honey
2½ cups (250 g/8 oz) rolled oats
¾ cup (65 g/2¼ oz) desiccated coconut
1 cup (30 g/1 oz) cornflakes, lightly crushed
½ cup (45 g/1½ oz) flaked almonds
1 teaspoon mixed spice
½ cup (45 g/1½ oz) finely chopped dried apricots
1 cup (185 g/6 oz) dried mixed fruit


1. Preheat the oven to warm 160°C (315°F/Gas 2–3). Lightly grease a shallow tin measuring 20 × 30 cm (8 × 12 inches) and line with baking paper, leaving the paper hanging over on the two long sides. This makes it easy to lift the cooked slice out of the tin.

2. Put the butter, sugar and honey in a small saucepan and stir over low heat for 5 minutes, or until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved.

3. Mix the remaining ingredients together in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Pour in the butter mixture and stir well, then press into the tin. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden. Cool completely in the tin, then refrigerate for 2 hours, to firm.

4. Lift the slice from the tin, using the paper as handles, before cutting into pieces. This slice will keep for up to three days stored in anairtight container.
