I am often asked to share recipes that do not include nuts, many schools and preschools specify that these cannot be in any lunchboxes, so I thought this would be a lovely one to add to the list.
Made with simple ingredients these are lovely served as ‘bars’ or in small square pieces as a slice. The flavours work so well together and there is nothing unusual or hard to buy in the ingredients.
You can use any dried fruit you like in this one, I have used a combination of raisins and dried apricots. Currents, dates, cranberries and sultanas would be lovely too. This recipe was found in a kindergarten fundraiser booklet as many great recipes are!
The ingredients you will need are as follows:

To make this recipe could not be easier, the first step is to melt together the butter, sugar, and golden syrup, I just do this in the microwave in 2 40 second bursts and whisk well to combine the butter and sugar. Then add the egg and whisk through, and finally mix through all of the dry ingredients.
Press this firmly into a lined baking tin and bake for 20 minutes until golden brown. If you prefer the slice a bit firmer add a few extra minutes onto the timer. I like the inside to be slightly softer so 20 minutes is perfect for me.
Once cooked remove from the oven and after 5 minutes using a sharp knife slice gently into the pieces you want while the slice is still warm, either in bars or squares. It is much easier to do this while the slice is warm, then allow the slice to cool completely.
