Fruitastic Slice

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. bicarb soda
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce (in jar)
  • 2 cups fruit medley (or 2 cups mixed dried fruit)
  • 3/4 cup peeled apple, diced
  • 1/2 tsp. mixed spice
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 3/4 cup wholemeal self raising flour
  • 3/4 cup self raising flour
  • cooking spray

METHOD:

Preheat oven 180C fan forced. 

 In a medium sized mixing bowl beat egg whites and sugar for 1 minute using an electric beater.

  Stir bicarb soda into apple sauce (it will froth), add to bowl. 

Add all dried fruits, deced apple, mixed spice and milk. 

 Sift both flours and gently fold into mixture in one go, treat as if it is a sponge.  DO NOT BEAT as this will make the slice tough. 

 Coat a slab tin with cooking spray then pour mixture into tin.  Bake 25 – 30 minutes or until firm to touch.  Allow to cool in tin then cut into 15 slices.

LunchBox Tips….

This slice is quick and simple to make and will disappear quickly!  It comes from Book 4 of the Symply Too Good To Be True series by Annette Sym.  Annette’s books are a great resource for Diabetic Friendly recipes the whole family will eat, and were a real life-saver for us when our daughter was first diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.
