Lunchbox Legends: Easy peasy gluten free slice

I'm sure there's some of you out there who are either coeliac or have kids who are.. so I thought I'd try a gluten-free lunchbox legend this week!

Even if you're not coeliac, it's yummy.  I thought my manly husband would turn his nose up at it.  Umm no.  I've had to hide it as he's had 3 pieces in one day!  Don't be put off if you don't have gluten free self raising flour, just substitute the GF self raising flour in this recipe for 1 cup regular self raising.

It really doesn't get any easier than this!  There's no butter in this either - so not-so-much fat.

1 3/4 cups gluten free self raising flour (I used the Aldi brand)
1 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup raw sugar
1/2 cup honey
1 cup raisins (or sultanas or even freeze dried strawberries if you like - get creative!)
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 180 degrees c.

In a bowl, mix all ingredients together either with stand mixer or by hand.  Ensure the mixture is thick but not stiff, add flour or milk as necessary to ensure the right consistency. (GF flour can differ depending on the brand)

Pour mixture into greased slice tray.  Bake for 35-45 minutes until golden brown on top.  Check if cooked through using skewer method.

Allow to cool for about 20 minutes, then slice into desired sizes.  Great with a cuppa too!

Oh... I want to fill this with sultanas and dried apricots. And dates too!
