So the second snack item I made this weekend was something that sounded delicious to me. I should have known it would not be to Scarlett’s taste. Oh well, more for me and hubby!
Apple and date chews
- 400g apples, peeled and chopped
- 1 cup dates, chopped
- 1 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
- 1/2 cup castor sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 egg, beaten
Preheat oven to 180 degree celsius. Grease and line a slice tin.
Mix all ingredients together until well combined. Spread into tin.
Bake for 20-30 minutes until golden brown. Cool in tin, then cut into fingers before turning out.
I got 24 small bite sized pieces from this batch. Scarlett had one nibble and placed the remained of her piece back on the chopping board. Oh well, you can’t win them all.
