Choc Coconut Oat Slice

My weekend was reasonably good - I saw the CrossFit Regionals on Saturday and that was insane. The athleticism on display was just crazy.
Here is a sample of ONE of the workouts over the 3 days

100 wall balls is hard - let alone the rest of the workout! On Friday I did 45 one legged squats after training and thought that was tough... The amount of six packs on display was also insane - the tag line for CrossFit is the sport of fitness & it really is - these athletes are strong, flexible and fit - and really nice! The atmosphere at a meet is buzzing - everyone is so supportive.

I left the meet questioning whether I even lifted. The women took strength to a new level!

  • 1 cup wholemeal self raising flour
  • 90g (1 cup) rolled oats 
  • 70g (2/3 cup) desiccated coconut 
  • 140g (2/3 cup, natvia)
  • 95g (1/2 cup) cocoa
  • 125g butter, melted, cooled 
  • 1 egg, lightly whisked
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line the base of your slice pan and 2 opposite long sides with non-stick baking paper, allowing it to overhang. 
  2. Combined flours, oats, coconut, natvia, cocoa in a bowl and stir to combine. Make a well in the centre and add the melted butter and egg. Use a wooden spoon to stir until well combined. Spoon mixture into prepared pan and use the back of a spoon (or hands) to smooth the surface. Really push it in the pan!
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until firm to the touch. Remove from oven and set aside to cool completely. Cut into squares to serve.
