Jen's mum's muesli slice

This recipe comes from a former colleague named Jen. (Thanks, Jen!) It is a nut-free muesli bar that's easy to make and delicious. The first time I tried the recipe I omitted the sugar, but that made the mixture very crumbly so I've added it back. Further experimentation may be required ...

50 grams butter
0.5 cup raw sugar
0.25 cup honey
200 grams pepitas
0.5 cup rolled oats
1 crushed Weet-Bix
0.5 cup self-raising flour
0.5 cup sultanas or currants

Preheat oven to 170 degrees Celsius. Line a 20 cm square tray with non-stick baking paper. Combine butter, sugar and honey in a saucepan. Cook until dissolved, stirring regularly. Combine all the other ingredients in a bowl and add the butter mixture, stirring till well combined. Press the mixture into the baking tray with a hand in a plastic bag (it is very sticky). Bake for about 30 minutes. Cool thoroughly before cutting into squares or bars.

I'm taking these to work tomorrow
to celebrate a colleague's birthday
