One Pot Oaty Caramel Slice

Sep 21, 2021

Nothing beats a gorgeous caramel slice – except one that is made in one pot!

This quick and easy recipe takes no time at all to whip up. It doubles really easy too.
And the oats make this recipe healthy – right?!

When I gre up my mum would make tan square most weeks when she filled the cake tins for school and work lunches. This is a great variation on that tan slice that she would make. A recipe she found in a Southland Women’s Hockey Team fundraising cookbook.

Pre heat your oven to 180 degrees and line a brownie tin (27x17cm).
I like to use silicon re-usable liners or compostable baking paper. Anything to help reduce my waste in the kitchen.

Simply place the butter and brown sugar into a pot.

Once it’s all melted and combined add flour, baking powder, rolled oats and salt.

Tip the mixture out into your lined tin – setting aside a quarter of the mixture for the topping.

Heat your tin of caramel (constantly stirring to avoid the caramel burning).
Stir until it becomes a smooth consistency.

Pour the caramel over your base and use the remaining mixture in your pot to sprinkle over the top.

Bake at 180 for 15-20 minutes (until the caramel bubbles and looks amazing)

How easy is that!
