This Fig + Ginger Oat Slice was inspired by the amazing friend who is looking after my fur baby Chia whilst I’m overseas. She loved the ANZAC Style Biscuits so much that she played around with them a little and made them into an Oat Slice.
I was headed out for a little morning tea with my Aunties and thought I would whip up the slice for myself. My Aunties love the flavours of fig + ginger so I thought I would add that to the slice, pimping it up a little to make Fig + Ginger Oat Slice.
And can I just say it was an absolute hit!
So wholesome is this slice it can be taken as a nice portable breakfast and of course also a really yummy snack.
Oats are an excellent source of of dietary fibre + beta-glucans. Beta-glucans boost heart health, regulates blood sugar + stimulates the immune system.
With the added benefit of the good fats from the almond meal + Macadamia oil, this is the perfect snack to help regualte those blood sugar levels and keep you satiated.
This Fig + Ginger Oat Slice is a great one to bake with little ones. It is so quick + easy – all in one bowl. It is perfect for both a kids lunch box or on a picnic mat with your loved ones. A warm + comforting winter treat or a summer snack.
Enjoy making and eating this one! You won’t be able to stop at one slice…
