This looks absolutely delicious.

The kids loved it in their lunchboxes, great snack for schoool.

Bronwen May 10, 2012 - 3:47 PM

In the oven as we speak – can’t wait to try it 🙂

Amanda June 5, 2012 - 8:50 PM

Finally got around to trying this one ~ very popular in our house ~ thank you. Xx

Amy February 7, 2013 - 5:01 PM

Why oh why everytime I make slice then cut it up it crumbles……:( Made this was yummy but fell to bits.

Elle March 13, 2015 - 3:22 PM

Me too 🙁

Zoe October 18, 2016 - 1:19 PM

I had the same problem so this time I added another egg and it has turned out great and not crumbly!

Rachael July 29, 2013 - 2:01 PM

This recipe sounds scrumptious. Will be making it tomorrow for my kids lunch boxes.

Rebecca December 12, 2013 - 11:11 AM

I can’t have dessicated coconut. What would you recommend substituting for it as these sound delicious?

Kerrie December 12, 2013 - 11:32 AM

Oat bran

Katrina December 19, 2013 - 5:15 PM

That’s a great alternative Kerrie

Hi for kids allergic to brown choc can we leave that out? and can we change brown sugar to raw? or no sugar at all? just for kids who have reactions to sugar things

Trish January 20, 2014 - 11:42 AM

My son has a nut allergy, so I made this without the chocolate and it was so good! In fact I have made it 3 times now 🙂 I am not sure about the sugar, but I would try it, I often substitute things if I don’t have something or leave stuff out depending on what I can make that is safe for my child. hope that helps!

Michelle March 12, 2015 - 8:39 PM

my son is 17 with a severe peanut tree nut allergy , since age 3. I use ghiradelli 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate chips without a problem in all my recipes.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife March 16, 2015 - 9:33 AM

Fantastic! Thank you for the wonderful tip, Michelle.:)

Samantha July 5, 2015 - 3:29 PM

You could always use a sugar free sweetener. I’m using one and I’m about to bake some now: my son has type 1 diabetes so I’m using stevia ????

Nikki November 13, 2015 - 4:55 PM

i used white chocolate chips (Nestle, cocoa free. We can’t have cocoa either).

sly December 12, 2013 - 5:12 PM

I’m from US what is Milo, please?

Krystle December 13, 2013 - 7:13 AM

Milo is mixed with milk to make a milk drink that tastes like malt. It is similar to Nesquik but is more grainy. It is really yummy!

Simone February 8, 2014 - 10:06 PM

Can this slice be frozen?

Katrina August 4, 2014 - 11:34 AM

Hi Simone, I would! I freeze everything.:)

Ollie July 25, 2014 - 5:55 PM

Just made this for an after school snack. Girls loved it. Thanks 🙂

Katrina August 4, 2014 - 11:33 AM

Hi Ollie, Ooh that is great. Glad your girls enjoyed them.:)

noelle January 2, 2015 - 8:10 PM

hi may i know – 1 cup is how many grams of the ingredient?

Steph January 23, 2015 - 10:41 AM

This would change depending on each ingredient. Not everything weighs the same.

Bel January 23, 2015 - 12:05 PM

I have just made the milo slice and was wondering if anyone had frozen this and if it still taste good when defrosted

Katrina - The Organised Housewife March 23, 2015 - 8:40 AM

Hi Bel, Absolutely! I freeze just about everything.:)

Kirti March 6, 2015 - 9:11 AM

Hi wondering how to mix with hand or hand mixer??? Pls reply I m not good in baking but want to try this.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife March 9, 2015 - 9:05 AM

Hi Kirti, I just mix with my hands.I find it a lot easier and it combines all the ingredients well.:)

athika March 23, 2015 - 2:49 AM

Thanx for the recipe ..looks great

Katrina - The Organised Housewife March 23, 2015 - 8:39 AM

It is so good.:) And a little bit addictive LOL.:)

Cassie September 28, 2015 - 7:45 PM

Is the milo added dry? It just seems very dry the mixture? I added 1/4 cup milk to hold it together.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife September 28, 2015 - 8:26 PM

Yes I added it dry, it should work 🙂

Radha December 26, 2015 - 12:07 PM

Can we replace SR flour with whole wheat?

Kim Male January 24, 2016 - 10:16 AM

can this be placed in the freezer?

Sally January 24, 2016 - 5:36 PM

Nice, thanks. I replaced butter with coconut oil, flour with wholemeal flour, oats with muesli, chocolate chips with chopped cashews, and I cut the sugar out and used half cup rice malt syrup. Will make again, I may increase milo next time.

Teresa January 28, 2016 - 11:50 PM

What are the measurements of a slice tin? Our boys LOVE Milo, so this will be a hit, no doubt.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 29, 2016 - 7:54 AM

they will love this then Teresa. A slice tin is 27x17x3cm, hope they enjoy it.

Hannah May 24, 2016 - 5:06 PM

Just made this, looks just like the picture, kids love it and I have heaps to freeze.. Winner!!

Katrina - The Organised Housewife May 26, 2016 - 10:11 AM

so glad it’s a winner, love those kind of recipes!!

renate September 17, 2016 - 8:51 PM

We dont have milo in our there anything I can use instead or can I leave it out?

Linda March 3, 2017 - 4:26 PM

You can try Horlicks or Ovaltine if that is available where you live. Possibly even Nesquick but maybe reduce added sugar then

Shellie March 31, 2017 - 2:49 PM

My kids are addicted to this, We freeze it for school lunches and make 4 batches at a time,

Kell June 19, 2017 - 3:54 PM

My children and their Mum love this recipe. Super easy and i also used 2 eggs. Combined nicely. Thanks

Vicki January 23, 2018 - 2:31 PM

I made these with my nearly 4 year old yesterday and they were so easy and yummy! Amazingly we had all the ingredients already. I wasn’t sure what consistency slice should be when you take it from the oven. It looked too soft do I gave it an extra 8-10 minutes and then hoped it would firm up once cooled, which it did! Husbsnd is a huge fan of these also 🙂

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 24, 2018 - 9:25 AM

Oh that’s great Vicki. So glad you and your family liked them also

Diana July 29, 2018 - 3:00 PM

Just made this and it was so good — super-quick, easy ingredients, and then just the right level of chocolate to make me instantly want to devour it alongside a cup of tea. As the comments suggested, I added an extra egg, just in case. Turned out perfectly. Will make it again!

Jacki June 4, 2020 - 7:52 PM

This is a big hit in our household, kids love it.

Mine always falls apart though, it’s very crumbly. I’ve tried adding extra butter and even blitzing the oats in food processor, it helps a little. I will try a second egg next time!

Nancy August 6, 2020 - 10:09 PM

Hello from NZ! I made this today & was surprised how fast & easy it took me from start to finish. Would definitely make it again with less sugar & more Milo. Thank you xx

Katrina - The Organised Housewife August 10, 2020 - 9:36 AM

Glad you loved it Nancy! It’s so delicious! Kat x

Nash June 9, 2021 - 8:50 AM

Hi! I’m zero experience with baking but found your article link & want to give it a try.
What is SR Flour & what is ‘Grease a slice tin and line with baking paper’ mean?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife June 15, 2021 - 9:17 AM

SR flour is self raising flour which is flour with a baking/raising agent pre-added. A slice tin is a large baking tray. Greasing a tray and lining it with baking paper means the baked goods won’t stick to the tray. I typically use a little bit of butter to grease a tray. Kat
