Avocado Coconut Oats Slice is an eggless and healthy slice made by baking oats, coconut, avocado. It is a very healthy breakfast and can be enjoyed as an afternoon snack with tea or coffee. It is a good option to pack for kid lunchboxes.
Avocado has good fat. I have used less butter and replaced it with avocado pulp. Once cut, avocado is oxidized quickly. To avoid it from turning black add lemon juice over it and mix well the pulp.
You can use nuts, dried fruits and seeds of your choice such as almonds, walnuts, hazelnut, macadamia, pepitas, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, raisins, sultanas, dried apricots, or dried cranberry.
To make the slice healthier, use wholewheat flour in place of all purpose flour.
Let the baked mixture cool completely at least for 4-5 hours before cutting into slices. The slices can be served warm with a cup of Greek yogurt or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The slices can be refrigerated for a week in the refrigerator and can be frozen for couple of months.
Friends, my family relishes these slices. My son likes to take him in his lunch box.
