Choc Chip Coconut and Oat Slice

I like to give my daughter a bit of a treat at school every now and then, I usually give her a choc chip muesli bar for her morning snack but I decided to make her a treat instead of buying it. I had made this recipe before and remembered she loved it.

While getting all the ingredients out of the pantry I remembered I didn’t have any butter.  Luckily while reaching for the sugar I saw a jar of coconut butter that’s been sitting there for about a year and expiring at the end of the month. I have read many recipes that have substituted butter with coconut butter as a healthier option, since the recipe has coconut in it I thought this will be a great recipe to try it out.

It got 2 thumbs up from my daughter and even my husband said ‘it was good’ which means he likes it, Yay.

I think sultanas would go great in this recipe and as my daughter suggested ‘ why not put milk, dark and white choc chips in mum? it would be Yum!’
