Blockbuster berry bars

Serves: 12

    It might look rustic, but this delicious berry slice is a modern-day masterpiece that’ll knock the socks off any hungry audience.


    • 3 Weet-Bix, crushed
    • 1 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 1/2 cup milk, or So Good Soy or Almond Milk
    • 1/4 cup maple syrup
    • 1/4 cup light flavoured olive oil
    • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
    • 1 tsp vanilla essence
    • 1/2 cup no-sugar mixed berry jam (see tip)
    • 1 tbs shredded coconut


    1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Oil a 20 cm (8 inch) square pan, line base and two long sides with a strip of baking paper.
    2. In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients. In a separate jug whisk together milk, maple syrup, olive oil, egg and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir until just moistened.
    3. Spoon a bit more than half the batter into the prepared pan and level into a thin layer. Dollop over jam and spread gently to the edges. Spoon over remaining batter to cover as much of the filling as possible. Sprinkle with coconut.
    4. Bake 20-25 minutes until firm on top and golden around edges. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, run a knife around unlined sides and lift out to cool completely on a rack. Cut into 12 bars.


    • Jam can be replaced with homemade thick berry compote.
