Recipe by our WW Ambassador Anna. Follow her on Instagram @feedmehealthy_annavandyken. Perfect for afternoon tea, this slice uses fresh dates and pears to add sweetness. Using All-Bran helps boost the fibre content too so you can enjoy a delicious snack that will keep you feeling fuller for longer.

Ingredients

Kellogg's Cereal, All-Bran, Original

1 cup(s), (60g)

Fresh dates

1 cup(s), (230g), pitted, finely chopped

Unsweetened almond milk

1 cup(s), (250ml)

Vanilla bean extract, alcohol free

1 tsp

Canned pears in natural juice, drained

1 can(s), 410g can, (1 x 410g can) roughly chopped

Maple syrup

1 tbs

Egg(s)

1 medium

Ground cinnamon

1 tsp

Walnuts

cup(s), (35g) roughly chopped

White self-raising flour

1 cup(s), (150g)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Line a 27cm x 17.5cm slice tin with baking paper.
  2. Place All-Bran, dates, almond milk, vanilla, pears, maple syrup, egg, cinnamon and two thirds of the walnuts in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Set aside to soak for 30 minutes.
  3. Gently fold through the flour in 2 batches, until combined. Pour mixture into prepared tin and sprinkle remaining walnuts over the top. Bake for 30 minutes or until set in the centre.

Notes

By leaving the mixture to soak for 30 minutes, the bran is able to breakdown before cooking creating a lovely texture in the slice.
