I love slices, they are so easy to make and are perfect for lunch boxes. This Milo slice is slightly chewy, and has a chocolatey taste from the Milo. It’s great on its own or decorated with icing. I topped mine with a basic chocolate icing, and drizzled melted white chocolate over the top.
Ingredients and substitutions
- Plain flour – Not to be confused with self raising flour
- Baking powder – The help give the slice a slight rise. Not to be confused with bi carb soda (baking soda).
- Rolled oats – Use ordinary, uncut rolled oats.
- Desiccated coconut – It’s best to use desiccated coconut and not substitute with shredded coconut.
- Brown sugar – The brown sugar can be substituted with 2/3 cup white sugar.
- Egg – A large sized egg was used in this recipe.
- Butter – Salted butter was used in this recipe, however this can be substituted for unsalted butter. If using unsalted butter, consider adding a pinch of salt to the batter.
