 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/4 cups (200g) plain wholemeal flour
  • 1/2 cup (100g) pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • 3/4 cup (65g) rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup (100g) quinoa flakes
  • 1 cup (220g) firmly-packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (40g) shredded coconut
  • 150g butter, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water
  • 70g white chocolate melts, melted


Step 1
Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and line a 3cm-deep, 20cm x 30cm (base measurement) lamington pan with baking paper, allowing 2cm of paper to overhang at long ends.
Step 2
Combine the flour, pepitas, oats, quinoa flakes, sugar and coconut in a large heatproof bowl. Make a well in the centre.
Step 3
Place the butter and syrup in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 mins or until melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Combine the bicarbonate of soda and boiling water in a jug. Pour into the bicarbonate of soda mixture and stir to combine. Pour into the well in the flour mixture and stir to combine.
Step 4
Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and use the back of a spoon to press the mixture evenly into pan. Bake for 25-30 mins or until golden. Cool in the pan. Cut into squares and drizzle with white chocolate. Refrigerate until chocolate is set and serve.
