Dear beloved sweet blog,

My sincerest apologies for neglecting you of late. I have no excuse other than being busy and trying so hard not to let food interfere with all my running and gym going. It's been hot as well, and turning on the oven is just not cool right now (pun intended).

Still, I know you miss me and I was craving Anzac cookies the other day...but I honestly didn't even have time to shape each cookie and bake two batches! So I made some lazy and nutritious Anzac slice. It's not low in fat, but they are good happy fats and I don't think you care anyway since blogs don't have waistlines.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I am...they are far too delicious and moreish!

Much love,
Zoe

1 cup rolled oats

Method
Whisk together oats, flour, coconut, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk oil, coconut butter, honey and panela sugar until combined. Soften the mixture over low heat if necessary (a double boiler will work well here).
