Cranberry And Oat Slices For Breakfast

I have a handwritten recipe for cranberry and oat slices that I must have copied down when at a friend a long time ago. If it had been done in the past two years I would have made a note from where I copied it, as I do not want to copy other people’s recipes without acknowledging where they are from. However, I have been looking for a perfect before breakfast snack for some time, and I was hoping this was it. Given that I don’t read a recipe until I start the process of actually making it, I expected the slices to be crunchy, but, as the recipe contains eggs, what you get is a cake like slice of pure breakfast delight. I ate two before they had cooled down and if I were to try these again I may just substitute the dried fruit for some dried cherries and even add some nuts. If this recipe is yours, please let me know, so that I can thank you properly on my blog.

  1. I quickly put the recipe through Google and only your blog came up, so it must have been from someone’s personal recipe 🙂
    Love your background 😉
    Friday greets to Dave.

    1. Friday greets back! I am pleased to see the recipe was not on google already as I never thought to check that 🙂 Love my background as well xxx

    1. It is perfect for the kids and I am sure she will love it! I will make these each time I make muesli as they use the same ingredients 🙂

  2. Hi Tandy – these sound like a good alternative to breakfast which I don’t normally eat & which I must now start doing. Have a lovely holiday.

    1. HI Dawn! I am also not a good breakfast eater and will usually eat what ever is closest to hand when I get hungry in the morning. Have a great weekend 🙂

  3. Hi Tandy, these are ideal for Jess, I will make the substitutions that you have and use some slivered almonds to boost the protein for her.
    Thanks for sharing this.
    Hugs. xx
