Blueberry and Lemon Oaty Slice

This slice is positively delicious and so easy to make.
It is just as good with fresh or frozen blueberries.

Yield: Makes 16 pieces

Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 175g butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup lemon curd
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries

Method

Preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F).  Grease and line a 28 x 18cm (11 x 7 inch) slice tin.
Mix the flour, oats, coconut, baking soda and sugars together in a mixing bowl.
Melt the butter and add to the bowl along with the vanilla, mix well.
Press half of the oat mixture into the slice tin and bake for 15 minutes or until well coloured.
Allow to cool for 15 minutes before spreading over the curd in an even layer.
Cover with blueberries and then crumble over the remainder of the oats.
Bake for a further 10-15 minutes until the topping is golden and crisp.
Allow to cool completely in the tin and on warmer days you may find it easier to slice once it has been fridge chilled.
Once chopped into pieces store in an airtight container in the fridge.

  1. Lovely slice recipe. Great balance of flavours – don’t be tempted to add more lemon curd as the quantity was just right. For the second cook I added another 5 minutes. I particularly like that it keeps well in the fridge.

  2. Delicious but if using gluten free flour, don’t use quite so much butter. The base bubbled and butter leaked from the baking tray to the oven tray below, and the final product was sticky but brittle. Need to try recipe again with regular flour.
