Weetbix Slice - a recipe

I'm usually sharing skincare recipes, but this time it's food -  a recipe for Weetbix Slice. I hadn't made this for quite a while, but after a swarm of locusts (aka teenagers) raided the cupboards it was time to do some baking.

Weetbix Slice


  • 175g melted butter
  • 4 crushed weetbix
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup dessicated coconut
  • 1 dessertspoon cocoa

Heat the oven to 180C (350F)

Combine all the ingredients and press into a lined slice pan. The one I use is 27cm x 21cm. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Cool in the pan.

When cold ice with chocolate icing and sprinkle with a little coconut.

This is another one of those recipes jammed into my overstuffed recipe book. It's handwritten (in my handwriting), but I have no idea where I got it from. I've been making it for years.

There are a few versions of this recipe around, but if anyone knows the origins of this particular one I'd love to know.

  1. What an interesting recipe! I've never had weetbix before. Actually, I've never even heard of it! I'll definitely try it though. I love experimenting with new flavors. Thanks for sharing at Inspiration Thursday!

    1. Weetbix is a wholegrain breakfast cereal here in New Zealand. There's something very similar available in the UK and Canada called Weetabix.

  2. Thanks for your recipe, which I will make later as I have just ought weetbix! I love seeing you share on #wednesdayswisdom

  3. This slice never lasts long in our house.

  4. This sounds like a delicious way to eat Weet Bix. Thanks so much for sharing with us at #Wednesdays Wisdom link up. I think I will make this on the weekend.

  5. Mmm, interesting. I haven't tried {or even heard of} Weetbix, but it looks tasty! Thanks for sharing with us the Merry Monday Link Party! Hope to see you again on Sunday night for another rockin' party! :0)

  6. If you can't get Weetbix (or Weetabix) you can use two cups of wholegrain wheat flakes or cornflakes.
