Traditional Weetbix Slice is a staple I enjoyed growing up.

This one contains peanut butter, for a non-peanut butter version – check out Chocolate Nut-Free Weetbix Slice.

It is best kept in the fridge or it gets very brittle.

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and grease a slice tray.

  2. In a bowl crush the Weetbix and add the flour, brown sugar and coconut.

  3. Melt the butter and peanut butter together in the microwave and add to the dry ingredients.

  4. Press the mixture into the slice tray and bake for 15 minutes.

  5. Drizzle lemon icing over the top.

  6. Store the Weetbix slice in the fridge or it becomes very crumbly.

  7. Mix until you get a nice icing consistency and spread over the top of the slice.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Traditional Weetbix Slice can be kept in an air tight container in the fridge for up to a week.
