Healthy Fruit Slice

This is a special request for Jod Chambers..... hardly any sugar, LOADS of fibre... and it's a delicious easy make baked good that utilises winter fruits xo

125 grams soft butter

2 beaten eggs

half cup brown sugar

1 & 1/2 cups of wholemeal self raising flour (spelt or kumult flour for good digestion or buckweat flour as a gluten substitute).

1 cup saltanas

1 cup wholemeal oats - I also add a handful of QUINOA. This is a bowel and protien superfood.

2 grated apples (peeled if it's for littlies, skin on if it's for big kids to keep their bottoms regular)

1 grated pear (if you have one)

1 cup water

Cinnamon and nutmeg to taste

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

2. Place butter, sugar, sultanas, grated fruit, water and spices into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

3. Add beaten agges, flour and oats to the mixture. Stir until just combined.

4. Pour into a glad bake lined loaf tin.

5. Bake for 45 minutes (until skewer comes out clean).

It can be kept in the fridge for up to a week! Reheat with butter for cold winter nights.

I love easy one pot cooking using wholefoods packed with nutrition. I am a full fat believer... less sugar, less white flour... and LOADS of fibre. If you have a recipe that you would like to share, or if you want to comment on this recipe PLEASE leave a comment.
